Energy and macro-nutrients such as carbohydrates, proteins, fats required is also greater. The addition of the nutritional needs depending on gestational age and the age of children who are breastfed. According to the Nutrition Adequacy Score (AKG) in 2013 from the Department of Health, recommends the addition of the energy requirements for pregnancy in the first trimester of 180 calories, when the second and third trimesters of pregnancy is 300 calories.
