when i was pregnant with aoife it was required by my dietition to try a piece of bacon and cheese because the baby needed the protein! as you go further into your pregnancy the exchanges went higher to meet the babies needs.  That was the only and last time i'll try meat didnt care for it!

rasher of bacon is 3 exchanges

slice of processed cheese 3 exchanges
