Are you worried that the food that you are eating is not good enough to support your pregnancy? As your baby develops in your womb, the requirements for your body change. To help you get all the nutrients that you need, here is a detailed pregnancy diet chart month by month.

5 important nutrients during pregnancy

Throughout our pregnancy, you need to ensure that you get the following nutrients through your diet:

    • Proteins: They are essential for the growing fetus and keep the mother healthy.
    • Folic acid or folates: They keep the birth weight healthy and also help in the development of the brain and spinal cord
    • Iron: It helps carry oxygen to the growing fetus.
    • Calcium: It is essential for the development of bones of the baby and to prevent any chances of osteoporosis in the mother.
    • Vitamin A: Improves vision, immunity and overall growth of the fetus.
