Motherhood is a feeling that is incomparable and inexpressible. It is something that has to be felt. It makes you feel complete. The feeling of a child taking shape inside you awakens your responsibilities towards the child. And the first step to be taken is to make important lifestyle changes. The expectant mother needs to lead a life that is different from what it has been so far especially in the case of diet. Both mother and child need nutrition for health and proper development. And therefore the expectant mums need a healthy diet comprising of milk and dairy products, cereals, whole grains, dals, pulses, nuts, vegetables, fruits, meat, fish , poultry, water, fresh fruit juices and so on.
Expectant mums need more folic acid, iron, calcium, protein, minerals, fibre, and vitamins. Most women go easy on fruits and vegetables but it is a strict no no for expectant mothers because fruits and vegetables are a rich source of vitamins and minerals. Instead of eating a few types of vegetables, expectant mothers should include all types of vegetables in their diet. For instance, cabbage, cauliflower & all long green vegetables such as tondali, turai, louki, parwal, spinach, govari should be used alternately.
Most expectant mothers are confused about the best type of food to eat. Since they have unusual cravings, it is very difficult to design recipes for them. Moreover, most mums-to-be do not know what constitutes the right nutrients and how much to consume to have a healthy baby.
