Balanced diet for pregnant women

Pregnant women must eat healthy foods that are rich in proteins, vitamins, and minerals. The following is a list with key foods to eat during pregnancy:

  • Green leafy vegetables, which contain folic acid
  • Skimmed or semi-skimmed milk and yogurts contain the necessary amount of calcium for the development of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems of the fetus
  • Meat, fish, and eggs are rich in proteins, iron, vitamins, and omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Eating fruit, vegetables, and cereals on a daily basis can provide you with the necessary amount of fiber to regulate intestinal activity
  • Tomatoes and mandarin oranges are vitamin C rich and help in the iron absorption process, preventing anemia

On the other hand, moderating the consumption of carbohydrates and fats, especially those that contain a high amount of calories, is recommended, too.
