Title: Iodine and pregnancy (video) (Links to English resource)
Summary: If you are thinking about having a baby, or could become pregnant, you need to know about iodine supplements. In Australia and New Zealand there has recently been a re-emergence of iodine deficiency. Iodine is an essential mineral that we get from the food we eat. While dairy foods and seafood are good sources of iodine, the amount of iodine in our diet depends on how much iodine is in the soil. A diet low in iodine may lead to a number of health problems. Iodine is particularly important for pregnant and breastfeeding women, the developing baby in the womb, babies and young children.
