Pregnant teenagers have little or no resources, have little education, no skills for employment and no access to health. A pregnant teenager becomes a burden to the affected family and the nation at large. All around Africa, the public ends up footing the health care bill for pregnant teenagers and their new-born infants. The bill is even higher when there are complications, which is often.

To help the teenager, we need to feed them well so they can gain weight. How much weight does a teenager need to gain to deliver a healthy baby? It all depends on how much she weighed before pregnancy. By following simple guidelines, the pregnant teenager can overcome the many hurdles stacked against her by feeding well. Find out how to feed the pregnant teenager and break the intergeneration malnutrition.
