Pregnancy diet

 Pregnancy diet:

Drinking of water and its importance during pregnancy:

You have to aim to drink  8 to 10 glasses of water every day . You have to hydrate your body.It gives many benefits to the developing baby  and at the end of pregnancy you are not going to face uterus pain.It's easy for you to deliver the baby normally.

Use mineral water because mineral water contains fluoride, which helps your growing baby's teeth develop stronger enamel. Some water supplies, such as tap water, do not have fluoride.

Fruit and vegetables:

Eat  fruit and vegetables because these provide vitamin B,C  and minerals, as well as fiber, which helps digestion and prevents constipation(that is a big problem faced by many women).

Eat a variety of fruit and vegetables a day. These can be in any form like fresh, frozen, canned, dried or juiced. It is important to cook vegetables lightly in a little water, or eat them raw but well washed, to get the benefit of the nutrients they contain.

Unwashed and uncooked meat or vegetables contains toxic chemicals that can affect the hormonal balance and also retard the baby’s development.

Importance of eating dates during pregnancy:

It is well said that ‘If you have nothing to eat  special for your pregnancy and you only eat 3 dates in a day you fulfill your body’s and your developing baby requirement’.

Dates contain fiber that runs your digestive system smoothly. They provide vitamin K and folic acid that is essential for pregnancy in every aspect.

Carbohydrates containing food:

Starchy foods are an important source of minerals , fiber and vitamins. They include bread, potatoes,  cereals, rice, noodles, maize, millet, oats, sweet potatoes, yams and cornmeal. These foods should be the main part of every meal that you take a day.



Sources of protein include meat , fish ,  eggs, beans, legumes/beans and nuts. Eat almost two pieces of fish in a week. Choose lean meat, remove the skin from poultry, and cook it properly..

Note: Avoid eating liver in meat and fish that are enriched with mercury such as shark/flake broad fish and swordfish.
