    Re: nutrition food during pregnancy

    Dear Shyamala,

    When i was pregnant doctor advised me to have 300gms of fish per week which are less in mercury. After listening to the doctor i made a research in the internet and found that it is a proved medical fact that the children of 8 year old whose mothers consumed 300-350 gms of fish (less in mercury) during pregnancy are high in IQ, no distractions during tests and have good concentration and memory. So i made it a point to have 300 gms of fish per weel throughout my pregnancy.

    Omega 3 and B vitamins in the fish are a good choice for pregnant woman but the contaminants like merury in the fish can affect the brain development of the foetus.

    One most important thing to be noted is, you should find out few varieties of fish less in mercury and consume it. In my case, i had Mackerel, Herring and Butterfish since these are extremely low in mercury. You can have omega 3 suppliment also.

    Re: nutrition food during pregnancy

    Dear Shyamala,

    If you
    Want maximum nutrition during your pregnancy, Make sure these super foods are in your diet.

    Whole grains

    Enriched, whole-grain breads and cereals are fortified with folic acid and iron and have more fiber than white bread and rice. Work whole grains into your day: oatmeal for breakfast, a sandwich on whole-grain bread at lunch, and whole-wheat pasta or brown rice for dinner.
    Beans

    Add black beans, white beans, pinto beans, lentils, black-eyed peas, and kidney, garbanzo, or soy beans to your diet. Try them in chili and soups, salads, and pasta dishes. Besides providing protein and fiber, they are also good sources of key nutrients, such as iron, folate, calcium, and zinc.

    Salmon

    Omega-3 fatty acids are good for your baby's brain and eyes, and salmon is a great source. Plus it provides protein and B vitamins. Salmon is also relatively low in mercury compared to other fish. Try it grilled, broiled, or on a salad. You can safely eat up to 12 ounces of low-mercury fish, such as salmon, per week.

    Eggs

    Eggs are versatile and a good source of protein that provides amino acids you and your baby need. They contain more than a dozen vitamins and minerals, including choline, which is good for baby's brain development. However, be sure not to eat undercooked or raw eggs.

    Berries

    Blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries are delicious snacks and taste great in pancakes and on top of cereal. Berries are packed with vitamin C, potassium, folate, and fiber.

    Low-fat yogurt

    One cup of plain, low-fat yogurt has more calcium than milk, is high in protein, and doesn’t have the added sugar of flavored yogurts. Dress it up with fruit or crunchy, whole-grain cereal.
