They are extremely beneficial during pregnancy and provide the best of nutrients while catering to the taste buds. Moderate in calorie count and high in nutritional value, muskmelon is good for pregnant women. These are one of the to-be-eaten fruits for the growth and development of your baby

Sonali Shivlani

In the case of gestational diabetes any kind of juice is best restricted as it has sugar. Even if you are not adding sugar the fruit in itself has sugar content in the natural form. Also in juice form naturally we consume a much higher quantity and at times also strain the juice to remove the pulp. This further increases the glycemic load of the snack.

I would avoid the juice. If as a fruit you would like to eat a small portion should be fine provided your sugar level is under control.
