उत्तर: Meat, Poultry, Fish, Eggs and Nuts
These foods provide protein, iron and zinc. There is an increased demand for protein during pregnancy particularly in the second half of pregnancy. The normal protein requirement of adult women is 1gm/kg body weight. During pregnancy it is recommended to have an additional 15 gm/day. The additional protein is essential to meet growing tissue demands.
Milk, Yogurt and Cheese
This group is a major source of protein, calcium, phosphorus and vitamins. Dairy products are one of the best sources of calcium, and your body needs a lot of it during pregnancy. Eat low fat dairy products if you are worried about too much weight gain in pregnancy. Cheese, milk, yogurt are excellent foods for pregnancy.
This group provides Important nutrition during pregnancy like vitamins A and C, potassium and fibre. Fruits such as oranges, grapefruit, melons and berries are the best sources of Vitamin C. It’s easy to eat three or more servings of fruit a day: juice or fresh fruit for breakfast, fresh or dried fruit for a snack, a fruit salad with lunch and a cooked fruit dessert with dinner.
One should have raw, leafy vegetables like spinach (palak) and other vegetables like carrots (gajar), sweet potatoes (shakarkand), corn (makka), peas (matar) and potatoes. These foods contain vitamins A and C, folate, and minerals such as iron and magnesium. They are also low in fat and contain fibre, which helps to alleviate constipation.
Breads, Cereals, Rice and Pastas
This group provide complex carbohydrates (starches), an important source of energy, in addition to vitamins, minerals and fibre. Pregnant women need 6 to 11 servings daily from this group. Grain products are also a good source of protein, which is the building material of body tissue for you and your baby. Many grains are enriched with B-vitamins and iron.
Fats, Oils and Sweets
Use sparingly, since these products contain calories, but few vitamins or minerals. Fats should not make up more than 30 percent of your daily calories. Try to select low-fat foods.
many Indian women are anaemic (from monthly blood loss, improper diet or previous pregnancies), you may want to fortify your iron levels even before becoming pregnant with such foods as meat, raisins and prunes or beans, soy products and spinach. Your body is better able to absorb iron when consumed with foods rich in vitamin C, such as citrus fruits, potatoes and broccoli.
Pregnancy doubles a woman’s need for folate (folic acid or folacin). Foods rich in folic acid include liver, deep green leafy vegetables.
सवाल: I am 23 weeks pregnent. Could you please advise what should be the expected weight gain now?? As I have gained only 1 kg by now.
उत्तर: Hello dear, If you are in the healthy weight range before becoming pregnant, then ideally you should gain between 11.5 kg and 16 kg: 1-1.5 kg in the first three months then 1.5-2 kg each month until you give birth. Sometimes women lose weight in the first trimester, then add pounds slowly over the next two trimesters. Also, your body uses more calories during pregnancy, so if you don't change your diet, you'll probably lose some weight, or not gain weight. Eat a balanced and nutrition rich diet. Try to keep your diet as natural as possible with loads of fresh fruits and vegetables. Also include whole grains, proteins and complex carbohydrates to your meals....Take your prenatal vitamins regularly. It compensates for any gaps in your nutrition intake and acts as a healthy supplement for your and your baby’s health.
Hope it helped...Take care urself....
सवाल: I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes at around 30 weeks (baby weight - 1.4 kg). But I was able to control my sugar levels with strict diet control. During my last visit at 33 weeks, my weight had reduced by nearly 2 kgs and the baby now weighs 2.1 kg. Is the baby's weight normal for a 33 weeks gestational diabetic mother?
उत्तर: There will always be a mention of estimated fetal weight in your ultrasound report which will be plus minus of 200 to 300 grams and that means your baby weight can be 2.2 or 2.3 kg so you should not worry.
the baby weight is good the only thing is you need to maintain proper diet since diabetic ladies need to control their diet as well as see which fruits are not causing them gain sugar.
otherwise sugarcane juice is best to increase baby weight as well as jaggery but since you are diabetic you shall not take these two although taking banana peach Apricot plum this will be a good option rather than eating grapes mango or papaya..
