Advices on nutrition during pregnancy

In conditions of severe environmental conditions and stressful lifestyle, a balanced diet is of particular importance for a modern pregnant woman. Every day she must receive all the necessary substances, vitamins and trace elements.


First of all, the future mother needs protein. Amino acids, which are part of the protein, are the “building blocks” of cells of the human tissue, and contribute to the growth of the child. A pregnant woman needs to eat 75-100 gr. protein per day. This roughly corresponds to three glasses of milk, 0.5 kg of cottage cheese, 2 eggs, and 100 grams. meat or fish every day.

Belk is rich in meat (veal, turkey, lean pork and dark chicken meat), fish (as well as shrimp, lobsters, crabs), milk and dairy products (cottage cheese, yogurt, yogurt, cheese), beans, nuts, and seeds. It is not by chance that a handful of nuts are recommended to be eaten in the morning, without getting out of bed, as a remedy for morning sickness.


Carbohydrates give the body energy. There are “fast” carbohydrates, instantly relieving hunger and giving strength, but not for long. It’s chocolate, cakes, sugar. Benefits from them are not many, because quickly removing the feeling of hunger, they are deposited in the body in the form of fat accumulation. Bread, cereals, pasta, vegetables, potatoes (especially in uniform) are “slow”, unrefined carbohydrates. They raise the level of glucose and maintain it for a long time.

Fats, contrary to popular belief, should also be present in the menu. But it is desirable that they are unsaturated fats. Let on your table there is a butter, but not margarine or widely advertised “ultralight” butter, because besides fat in these products contains very few other useful substances. The oil must be bright yellow and hard.

When frying products, use refined oil because it does not form carcinogens during cooking. For salad dressing, on the contrary, use unrefined oil, because it is more useful.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is used by the body in the process of regenerating tissues, healing wounds, and the child needs it for the proper growth and development of a strong skeleton and teeth. The peculiarity of this vitamin is that it cannot be stored in the body, and must come daily with food.

Vitamin C contains primarily citrus fruits. But, standing in front of the counter in meditation, what to prefer: grapefruits, oranges or tangerines, you should give unconditional preference to the first. It is grapefruit that contains the highest dose of vitamin C and is the least dangerous from the point of view of developing a child’s allergy. Mandarins are on this list in the last place, as the least useful and most allergenic.
