Please don' t confuse dry fruits with nuts. Dry fruits are raisins and sultanas [brown and black kishmish], dried figs [anjeer], dried apricots [alu bukhara] and dried dates [khajoor]etc. You can have them in moderation. The sugar is concentrated so if there are any sugar related concerns or gestational diabetes, your endocrinologist may limit them.
Nuts are almonds, cashews, peanuts, pine nuts, walnuts etc....rich in omega 3 fatty acids which help make DHA essential for baby' s brain cell and eye cell development, also calcium, priotiens, and iron etc. A lot of pregnant mothers are told these are \" heaty and will harm baby\" but you can eat them in moderation [as in all foods] and they are an excellent source of the above essential substances.

Diet concerns
I exercise a lot. In the morning I go for brisk walk and walk about 8 kms. Then I do some exercises such as pilates or crunches. In the evening I do cycling and some more exercises. All this makes me immensely hungry and I eat like a hog. I just can' t control my hunger. I hope this is not an issue in future as regards to health or should I control my diet? ... - Siya Gandhi [View Message]
Papaya during pregnancy
My mother in law told me to stop eating papaya and eggs, dates, pineapple and chicken as they can cause miscarriage. However, I am really craving for papaya now and really want to eat papaya. I am in my second trimester so will it be safe for me to eat papaya during 5th month of pregnancy.... - Palaki [View Message]
Rigorous Exercises during pregnancy
Hi Siya,

It is not safe to do rigorous exercises during pregnancy and stress your self so much. Talk to your obstetrician so that she can tell you to do right exercises during pregnancy. Stressful exercise can prove harmful to your baby so be careful.... - Anuja [View Message]
