Pregnancy diet for first trimester.

Pregnant women need to eat healthy foods most of the time and still enjoy the occasional treat. Pregnancy is not a time for deprivation or giving up everything you hold precious and dear. For many of us, food is a source of great pleasure and to feel as if you need to put your taste buds on hold for nine months is not only unrealistic, it is also very unkind.


Any pregnancy eating plan needs to include the aim of eating a varied, fresh and interesting diet. Think about the foods you eat in terms of what they will be doing for you and your baby. It won’t be until your third trimester when you will need to increase the amount of kilojoules you have each day and, even then, an extra piece of fruit and a glass of milk will meet these additional daily requirements.


It is the quality and intensity of the nutrients in your diet which count during pregnancy, rather than food “bulk”. You would have heard the term “work smart”; well, pregnancy is a time to “eat smart” and with your head, not just your taste-buds.


But eating healthy when you’re expecting can be difficult given your crazy schedules. We’ve made things a bit easier by designing a trimester wise meal plan:

Eating right during pregnancy boost your immunity and keep mood swings at bay resulting in a happy and healthy pregnancy. It is advised that you consult a doctor or accredited health practitioner before starting a supplement programe or changing your diet.
