Diet for Pregnant woman

A well-balanced diet during pregnant helps ensure that both you and your baby are healthy. Good nutrition before you’re pregnant will mean a healthier you and baby. If you’re already eating a well-balanced, nutritious diet now few, if any, changes will be necessary during pregnancy. Doctors recommends that pregnant women increase their pre-pregnancy servings of the four basic food groups. Here are the groups

  • At least four servings of fruits and vegetables. This is important for making sure you consume enough vitamins and minerals through food, in addition to any prenatal vitamins your health care provider has suggested during your pregnancy.

  • At least four servings of whole-grain or enriched bread and cereal to ensure you have enough energy during your pregnancy.

  • At least four or more serving of milk and dairy products (not including butter or margarine) for the calcium you need during pregnancy.

  • You’ll also need to consume at least three servings of meat, fish, poultry, chicken, eggs, nuts, dried beans, or peas to ensure an adequate level of protein in your diet.
