Q:

Hi All, I am almost 7.5 weeks pregnant and I really confused on the kind of fruit, vegetables and dry fruits that are essential for the babys development. Do let me know



hi sheetal
you may eat all kind of fruits except papaya. and also all kind of dry fruits. badam and akhrot are the best.

Hey Sheetal. Here is a super useful article to refer to.

A balanced diet is very important especially during pregnancy. You may not feel very hungry or may have food aversions in the first trimester but don't worry. This is normal. Eat small portions and aim at eating healthy. If you are able to eat normal food then for fruits and vegetables would suggest a rainbow diet. Which means have as many colors as possible which are available fresh in that season. So for eg winter means strawberries and apples and summers means mangoes and melons. Choose seasonal options.

sorry that got posted without completing.
the fruits were examples to denote that eat fresh eat seasonal and eat as many colors as possible as you will get a variety of nutrients.
Almonds and walnuts are star nuts for pregnancy
Eating a small portion of dates, raisins and figs will help maintain your iron levels.

Thank you this is really very helpful
