    Hi Padma, please consult your doctor before following any general diet chart becuase your doctor is examining you face to face and determines your needs in diet front. Hence it is always follow your doctor's advice in this regard. Anyway I will give you a general diet plan. But I request you to consult your doctor always before starting the diet plan. Your doctor is the best advisor in this regard.


    • As it has been strictly prescribed by doctors that intake of Vitamin A must be controlled because it may cause damage to embryo.
    • Cabbage, Cauli-flower & all long green vegetables should be used alternately. You must keep balance, rather than eating same vegetable all the time.
    • Reduce brinjal, yam, papaya, onion, chilli, garlic, ginger, pepper, asfoetida, mustard, bajara, carom seeds, jaggery from your diet. You must remember that those who have previous history of abortion better they must avoid these.
    • Those who suffer from constipation, gas, bloating must avoid peas and other `heavy to digest' cereals, potato. They must take green gram as it is easy to digest and gives protein.
    • Black grapes, banana, ripe mango, dates, cashewnuts, apricot are very beneficial.
    • Butter, milk, honey, fennel seeds, sweets made from jaggery rather than white sugar can be taken in small quantity.
    • Rice, Chapati, Paratha, are the items made from wheat and rice, so they are quite beneficial.
    • Items such as sandwich, bakery bread, bun, dhokla, pizza, handva, pancake, khaman, steamed rice cake, curd, tomato, tamarind, kadhi usually increase the swellings and acidity. So, try to avoid such item but if such problems do not exist, you can take in small quantity.
    • Don't carry out fasts during pregnancy which is not good for health.
    • Do not eat left over, frozen & deep-frozen food.
    • Avoid cold drinks, mutton, cocoa, chicken, eggs. You can drink tea, coffee in small quantity.
    • Remember, the baby inside depends on you for proper nutrition. So, if you will take healthy & balanced diet your child will become healthy.
    • During pregnancy, mother must focus on supplemental nutrients while maintaining a balanced and nutritious diet. They must get a list of healthy Indian foods and meal planning tips from doctor to eat well during a pregnancy.
