Pregnant, are you? Heartiest congratulations! You also need to be careful with your diet during your pregnancy. This is because the health of your baby is directly dependent on the food you ingest.
Pregnancy is a special time, one of the high points of your existence. Life giving birth to life- what can be more miraculous or beautiful? That is why you need to nurture yourself – and your unborn child – with nourishing nutrients in your diet.
For a start, you need to step up your protein intake by about 15 grams on a daily basis. Eggs, pulses, whole grains along with nuts and dairy products should form a major part of your diet during pregnancy.
Nuts also happen to be a good source of Vitamin B which is good for you and your baby. Or bite into an avocado which too, is a rich source of Vitamin B.
Equally vital to your infant’s well-being is Vitamin A since it maintains cell integrity. Quite a few pregnant women love eating mangoes as they are well-endowed with beta carotene, a great source of Vitamin A.
Dairy products like milk and cheese are not only good protein sources but also of calcium- a vital nutrient for your child’s bones and their development. If you don’t like drinking milk try chilling it with a drop of vanilla before ingesting it. Add a fair sprinkling of cheese and salmon to your diet.
Iron is an extremely vital source of your diet during pregnancy. Iron increases the amount of blood circulating inside your body as well as that of your baby’s. Iron also strengthens the placenta which is a rich source of stem cells. The latter, your doctor will tell you, offer a lifeline to your child should he or she be afflicted by disorders later. Bank your child’s the placenta; save your child.Note: As a pregnant woman, you are specifically warned to seek medical advice prior to initiating any exercise program, diet, or treatment provided by Cryobanks.
