Subject:  Food For Pregnancy
Being pregnant does not mean eating for two but it means eating the right food. During pregnancy a woman has to provide good nutrition for two individuals. For a pregnant woman, awell-balanced diet that contains something from all the food groups is a must. These include dairy products, fruit, vegetables, fish, meat, eggs, fat and carbohydrates. Besides these, a pregnant woman needs folic acid which helps prevent neural tube defects such as spina bifida. During pregnancy, a woman' s body needs more iron than usual so she needs to have an iron-rich diet. Good sources of iron are green vegetables such as broccoli and spinach and wholemeal bread. Iron is easily absorbed if it is taken in conjunction with vitamin C so it is advisable to take it in form of supplement or as a juice.

Eating well during pregnancy is very important for the mother and the baby. An ideal pregnancy diet should have all the nutrients in a balanced proportion for healthy development of the baby. Eating a wide variety of foods helps in getting all the nutritional requirements. Foods high in fiber such as whole-grain breads, cereals, fruits, and vegetables should be preferred. A prenatal vitamin supplement is also to be taken. Ensure the proper intake of calcium-rich and iron-rich foods. Also ideal pregnancy diet should have a good source of folic acid that can be obtained from legumes.
