Pregnancy diet

Nutrition and diet during pregnancy is a vital aspect for healthy pregnancy and the well-being of your baby. We list out in our articles, the essential vitamins, minerals and other nutritional components for a healthy pregnancy and their sources.

Before you plan a pregnancy diet, consult with your doctor about the specific nutritional requirements that you’ll need, based on your age, weight and health conditions. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) has devised a meal plan for pregnant women, called the MyPlate, which is available both as an app and a website. MyPlate recommends you what to eat and how much to eat according to your pregnancy age, weight, exercise level etc.

With nausea and morning sickness, you may not feel like eating everything that is listed in a pregnancy diet. Eating can be miserable for some pregnant women. We understand your concerns. That is why we provide you helpful advice on how to eat during pregnancy along with what to eat. We also talk about food cravings and food aversions you may have during pregnancy and how to compensate on the energy you lose with vomiting and morning sickness.
