    • Egg
    • Cooked Meat
    • Skim milk
    • Yogurt
    • Hard Cheese
    • Peanut Butter

    Carbohydrates

    Carbohydrates stands next to Protein, in pregnant ladies diet. Adding more Carbohydrates in your diet, helps you to prevent from Constipation problem and gives you long lasting energy.

    Some best foods that are rich in carbohydrates.

    • Wheat Bread
    • Cereal
    • Cooked Pasta/Rice
    • Potato
    • Corn


    You can take nine serivings/day of the listed foods.

    Fats

    Another important diet during pregnancy is the FATS. These are helps you metabolize vitamins like Vitamin A, D, E and K.

    Though Fats are the supplier of more Calories, so dont take fat containing foods more than one-third of your daily diet menu.

    Some of the best foods containing fats are:

    • Cheese
    • Peanut Butter
    • Lean Meat
    • Peanut Oils.


    Important to remeber

    • Avoid to eat foods like meat, dairy products and coconut oil since it contains less desirable saturated fats.

    Calcium

    Calcium containing foods are so essential for building your baby's bones and teeth. During your pregnancy period, if you don't contain less amount of calcium or not enough, that will put you in risk. The fetus will be rob your calcium stores and there will be a risk for your bone loss.

    Here is the list some calcium rich foods

    • Skim Milk
    • Raw Green Leafy Vegetables like spinach
    • Canned Salmon or Sardines
    • Cottage Cheese
    • Hard Cheese
    • Yogurt
