What should be the daily diet of a pregnant woman?
Hello, my wife is two months pregnant. Can anyone suggest what should be her daily diet? Doctor asked her for bed rest. She is 27 years old. Please suggest some food that I should include in her diet. Thank You.
@lakshh-0 Hello, aim for a balanced diet, with an appropriate blend of all the 5 food groups:
vegetables and legumes, bread and cereals, milk, yogurt and cheese, meat, poultry, fish, and fruits. Dairy products, especially yogurt, are a great choice. They help you meet increased protein and calcium needs. Include legumes as legumes are super sources of folate, fiber, and many other nutrients. Folate is a very important nutrient during pregnancy. You can include sweet potatoes, eggs, broccoli, leafy vegetables, and dried fruits. Thank You.
