Pregnant women usually waver between the worry of becoming obese and the risk of fetal malnutrition if they don’t eat enough.

Gaining too many weights during pregnancy has become an obsession for many pregnant women, as it doesn’t only affect directly to the health such as increasing the risk of getting diabetes, hypertension which dangerous complications are pre-eclampsia, oversized fetus that creates difficulties at delivery…, but it also makes pregnant women difficult to take back their shape as they used to have before giving birth. Therefore, choosing a suitable food to make sure that the baby can develop well, and the mother can keep her shape is still a huge challenge.

In fact, ensuring your menu to be healthy and have sufficient nutrition so as to gain weight properly and make the fetus absorb the nutrition well during pregnancy is not too difficult as many women think. There’re rules for choosing and using foods that are quite easy and effective which pregnant women can refer:

“Eating for two”

It doesn’t mean that you’re free to eat whatever you like, whether they’re nutritious or just contain fat and sugar, and include doubling the portion for each meal. Eating for 2 is just simply that everything you eat needs to be nutritious form yourself and the baby. During pregnancy, you’re the only source of nutrition for the baby. Each calorie, vitamin or protein your baby need is from what you eat. Therefore, choose the source of food as diversified as you can, and you will satisfy the baby’s requirements if you eat lots of fruits, vegetables, beans, whole-grain cereal, meat, fish, low-fat dairy products…

Supervise the daily calorie consumption

The bigger the fetus grows, the faster you feel hungry, but that doesn’t encourage you to eat as much food containing energy as possible. Normally, your energy requirements when being pregnant just need to increase by 15%, which is not much compared to the assumption that you need to double the normal amount of food. Instead of choosing nutrition-poor yet sugar-rich, fat-rich foods, make sure that you need to supply enough protein, carbohydrate and energy, in which protein plays an important role in being themain structural factor in the formation of the cells, tissues, creation of muscles, connective tissues, bones and the organs for the baby. The requirements of pregnant women for protein are about 3 portions, with sugar and carbohydrate being about 4-5 portions/day.

Stay away from the nutrition-poor foods

Normally, though the foods as follows may be delicious, they make you miserable as you get portlier due to having a high amount of fat, sugar and low amount of nutrition for the developing baby: sweets containing white sugar, yellow sugar, syrup, honey or artificial sweeteners, candy, milk chocolate, soft drink, bottled juice, biscuit, cakes, jam, fruits mixing with boiled sugar, ice cream, spaghetti, mayonnaise, chips. If you have excessive sugar cravings, you should choose snacks tasting sweet but containing lots of nutrition such as yoghurt, sweet fruits, black chocolate, cookie containing molasses, banana and dried fruits… at moderate amount during a day.

Food closest to their natural state

This is a kind of food having high content of nutriments as well as providing the highest nutrition fact for both mother and baby, ranked in order of priority from fresh food, frozen food,and canned food. With vegetables, fruits, you should choose the fresh ones according to their season. If you buy fish, you need to choose a reliable place to avoid the germs. With processed food, you need to check the label to avoid things having genetic modifications, which is GM for short.

Description: Reducing the amount of oil as much as possible when cooking, choosing the kind of food that is closest to their natural state such as eating green vegetables, steamed or boiled meat… are smart ways to supplement nutrition for both mom and baby without the fear of losing your shape.
