Top Six Foods To Have During Pregnancy

Making sure your diet is healthy during pregnancy is extremely important.  During this time, the body needs extra nutrients, vitamins and minerals. After all, you need to feed not just yourself but also your baby! The food you eat will determine your baby’s development so you need to make doubly sure that you’re eating all the right things because your baby is what YOU eat. Here’s a list we have curated for you would-be mommy!

  1. Dairy Products

    You need to consume extra protein and calcium to provide a sufficient amount for your growing fetus. Greek yoghurt is particularly the best for pregnant women

  2. Legumes

    These include lentils, peas, beans, chickpeas and so on. They are an excellent source of protein, iron and calcium. Legumes are also very high in fibre.

  3. Sweet Potatoes

    These are super rich in beta-carotene that is converted into Vitamin A in your body and pregnant women are generally recommended to increase their vitamin A intake by 30-40%

  4. Salmon

    The omega-3 source for your diet! It’s a natural source for vitamin D.

  5. Lean Meat

    This is a good source of high-quality protein as well as iron which is important during pregnancy to avoid any iron deficiency anaemia.

  6. Berries

    Filled with high water content, healthy carbs, vitamin C, fibre and antioxidants which help in absorbing iron. Also good for skin and other immunity functions.
