Daily Health Tips:Diet Prescription For Pregnancy


Q: What can a woman take as diet when she is one month pregnant?

 

A: Generally, food focus during pregnancy is on the same things you ate before you got pregnant…assuming you were eating right :D. More fruits and veggies, complex carbohydrates (they are rich in fibre and keep you feeling full for a longer period of time) like beans, oatmeal, sweet potatoes, brown rice etc. Load up on proteins too (fish, chicken etc), calcium rich foods like yoghurt, skimmed milk etc

Eat 5 small meals a day: breakfast, snack, lunch, snack and dinner. This should keep the hunger pangs at bay and deal with the cravings. You probably will still crave stuff: Iyaalamala’s food, ice cream with all the toppings, a ‘ginormous’ (for the uninitiated, this is a word formed from a mixture of gigantic and enormous. Cute, right?)burger etc. and guess what? You can give in once ina blue moon, just don’t make it a habit! If you take in more calories than you need, you run the risk of having a big baby with all the complications associated with that during pregnancy and delivery and of course, it’s harder to get back to your pre-pregnancy weight after the baby.

I hope this helps 😀

Have a great night, y’all J
