Answer: Mango contains iron (good for haemoglobin), Vitamin A (improves eye sight), Vitamin C (improves immunity and combats free radicals), potassium (balances liquids), fibre (fights indigestion) and many more. It also has higher sugar content compared to other fruits, which makes it a healthy substitute for cakes and pastries when you have a sweet craving. Being high in calories, it also makes for a good snack during your third trimester when your body needs more energy. Risks: While mango itself is safe during pregnancy, what makes it risky is the chemicals such a scalcium carbide used to ripen it. You should also avoid the fruit if you have, or are at risk of developing, gestational diabetes. When not had in moderation, it can also lead to diarrhoea, which in turn leads to dehydration.
Answer: Unripe mangoes are on almost every pregnant woman’s crave list because of their delicious tangy taste. Mangoes are recommended by nutritionists for their high nutritive value and antioxidants and are generally considered to be quite safe for consumption if consumed in moderation. However, there are specific issues which can arise with unripe mango consumption like allergic reaction, stomach upset, diarrhoea etc which can be prevented by taking precautionary measures. Overall mangoes are safe for use as a part of your pregnancy meal plans. But you must consult your doctor before including raw as well as ripe mangoes in your diet because each pregnancy is different
