As mentioned above, a pregnant mother should have a well-balanced diet, and the diet should include the following:

  • Fruits and vegetables: leafy greens and dark orange vegetable products regulated the digestive system and provides antioxidants from natural source. Fresh vegetables are easy to prepare and digest and also provides folic acid, a vital nutrient required for the baby’s growth.

Fresh fruits are nutritious and makes the baby grow stronger.

 

  • Proteins: an essential component required for the growth of a healthy baby, pregnant mothers should include fish, lean meat, and chicken, as well as eggs in their regular diet.

  • Healthy fats: vital for mothers and baby’s health, healthy fats builds up baby’s brain. Fats are termed healthy which are not man made, but are natural like olive oils, coconut oil, palm oil, cod liver oil, avocado, many nuts and seeds.

 

  • Carbohydrate rich foods: foods like potatoes, rice, pasta, and bread are high in carbohydrate content, Carb provides energy and is therefore, an important component in pregnancy diet.

 

  • Fibers: women’s have higher risks of constipation during pregnancy and fiber intake minimizes that probability and regulates the digestive system. Eating plenty of fiber during pregnancy also reduces the risk of hemorrhoids and helps in the growth of the fetus. Whole meal bread, wholegrain pastas, beans, lentils, fruits and vegetables are rich sources of fibers.

 

  • Calcium and Zinc: calcium is an important element in the development of bone health of the baby and hence it is important to have a daily intake of calcium in the diet. Dairy products like milk, cheese and yoghurt, calcium-set tofu, soybeans, bok choy, broccoli, collards, Chinese cabbage, okra, mustard greens, beans, kale, and soy nuts are rich calcium sources.

Zinc in trace quantities is important for growth and development, cellular integrity and many biological functions like metabolism protein synthesis and also development of the fetus. Meats, fish, chicken, dairy products, beans, nuts, peanut butter, ginger, onions, bran, wheat, rice, pasta, cereals are good sources of zinc.

 

  • Extra Iron: it makes the main component of hemoglobin, which is vital for carrying oxygen within the body. The amount of blood in a women’s body increases by almost 50% and hence she needs more iron intake to make more hemoglobin for the extra blood. Inadequate iron supply to the body may make the mother anemic and also suffer premature delivery, low weight baby, tiredness and fatigue during pregnancy and even new-born death.
