Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

hello...
Atleast 4o- 70 grams per day is required in third trimester... Beans are a great source of protein, as are lean meat, poultry, fish and shellfish, eggs, milk, cheese, tofu, and yogurt. Although animal products contain complete proteins (all nine amino acid components) and plant sources generally don't, eating a variety of foods throughout the course of the day will help ensure that you get all of the amino acids you need.
Eat three or four servings of protein daily, and you'll be well on your way to eating right for a healthy pregnancy and baby.
