Proper nutrition during pregnancy
The development of the fetus depends on the correctness and balance of the woman's nutrition in the "interesting position". For example, on how much the female body consumes protein and calcium, the strength of the embryonic bone tissue will depend. In addition, many ingredients bought in supermarkets have a negative impact on the condition of the baby in the womb. For these reasons, there is a need to analyze the method of nutrition during pregnancy, in order to protect themselves and crumbs from undesirable consequences.
General concepts of healthy eating
The first thing that is worth remembering the future mother - it is better to finish the dinner a little hungry than with the weight of overeating, no matter what you need to eat. In order not to experience discomfort and compensate the necessary amount of food for the fetus, it is best to eat less, but more often. The best option is to eat 4-6 times a day, and leave the last meal for the evening, about 3 hours before bedtime. If you can not tolerate hunger before bed, you can drink a glass of natural juice, milk or eat an apple, a pear, a plum - any favorite fruit.
Proper nutrition for pregnant women implies a complete rejection of seafood (except fish), pickled canned food, fried heavy food and any kind of smoked foods. It is much more useful to eat what is cooked for a couple. This way of cooking means the absence of excess fats and oils, which will have a beneficial effect on your waist, as well as the full preservation of trace elements and minerals in the composition of products. Also cooked or stewed food. Any ingredients for pregnant women should be fresh, natural and cooked with a minimum of salt. Give up coffee during pregnancy and fast food.
