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.
