A pregnant woman should always eat a balanced diet. Ensure that the food you eat is fully cooked so as not to expose yourself to risks. Care must be taken if you will be eating fish, eggs, and meat. Do not eat shark, King mackerel, swordfish, and tilefish as they are loaded with mercury that is harmful to the growing fetus. If you love tuna, don’t eat more than 12 ounces in one week.
Eat Fruits and Vegetables
The best thing you can do for your baby is to eat a balanced diet. Fruits and vegetables are quite important and should be eaten in plenty when pregnant. However, you must ensure that you wash all the produce before eating them.
You should eat at least 4 servings of dairy products each day. It gives you the calcium your baby requires. However, ensure that you don’t drink unpasteurized milk because it has bacteria that can cause an infection.
