A pregnant woman need 300 Kcal extra calories, 550mg extra calcium and 100 mg iron. Though iron and calcium supplement is already given to pregnant women after 16 weeks of pregnancy, when the actual demand starts but meeting these demands from diet is of equal importance.
As there may be a feeling of nausea, a pregnant woman cannot have a full meal at one time, so it is necesary to go for frequent light meals.
A pregnant woman should take three to four servings of milk or dairy products, five to ten servings of vegetables and fruits, five to twelve servings of bread, cereals, rice or pasta, two to three servings of meat, fish, poultry,dried beans, eggs or nuts and at least 6 to 8 glasses of liquids. This can be divided into breakfast, lunch, dinner and evening snacks. There should not be a gap of more than 2 hours. Coffee and tea should be avoided and a preganant woman should have at least one fruit early in the morning.
