Question: Suggest some diet plan for me
Answer: Hello dear Just have a healthy meal lots of vegetables and do not forget about the calcium intake Milk is the best source for calcium. Based on the personal experience I used to take 3 glasses a day during my pregnancy . Eat or drink 4 servings of dairy products or foods rich in calcium. Dairy products are the best source of calcium. Other sources of calcium are dark, leafy greens, fortified cereal, breads, fish, fortified orange juices, almonds and sesame seeds. Sweet potatoes are very rich in beta-carotene, a plant compound that is converted into vitamin A in the body. Broccoli and leafy greens contain most of the nutrients that pregnant women need. They are also rich in fiber, which may help prevent or treat constipation.Whole grains are packed with fiber, vitamins and plant compounds. They are also rich in B-vitamins, fiber and magnesium, all of which pregnant women need. Dried fruit may be highly beneficial for pregnant women, since they are small and nutrient-dense. Just make sure to limit your portions and avoid the candied varieties. Drinking water is important because of the increased blood volume during pregnancy. Adequate hydration may also help prevent constipation and urinary tract infections.
