Whole food vitamin : I like whole food vitamins that give you the equivalent of several servings of fruits and veggies. Good healthy foods should be presented with no ability to "place order" ( unless allergies ). Limit drinks as kids can fill up on milk and juice and not experience hunger. Make a healthy smoothie at home if needed. Find high calorie nutrient dense foods so do not need large quantity to be consumed.

No: Although food poisoning can be miserable in general it will not hurt the fetus. Most cases can be managed at home and resolve in 24-48 hours. The key is to avoid dehydration. If you develop fever, have bloody diarrhea, have contractions or can not stay hydrated then yes you should be seen in the hospital.
