Important Food Groups You Should Take During Pregnancy

Milk Group

During pregnancy, some foods may be disgusted. You may not like your favorite food during pregnancy. This is particularly the case. milk and dairy products It can be observed. In such cases, I would certainly ask you not to force yourself, but to substitute alternatives. For example; if you disgust from milk instead yogurt, buttermilk or kefir You can consume.

Milk and dairy products calcium, phosphorus, sodium, magnesium, potassium like minerals. Vitamin A, Vitamin B12, Vitamin B2 (riboflavin)) vitamins.

During pregnancy milk group It is important. The saturated fat content of milk and its products is quite high so I recommend that mothers who have a high weight before pregnancy and gain weight rapidly should consume milk products without fat or fat. But expectant mothers underweight or normal weight if she started pregnancyfull oil products they may prefer. Oil-free or low-fat products Our expectant mothers can support the deficit in fat loss with nutrients containing useful fats. For example; nuts, walnuts, almonds It can be consumed.

Problems such as constipation often occur later in pregnancy. Probiotics It is very important for our intestinal health. Our intestines are ours our second brain. Yogurt is very important during pregnancy because it is a very good source of probiotics.

The best protein source in pregnancy red meat. Inadequate protein intake iron in mothers, B6 and B12 vitamin deficiencies can be seen.

Grain Group

The most important fuel for the body carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are very important in pregnancy. It is wrong to completely remove carbohydrates from our lives for fear of losing weight. The important thing is to choose the right carbohydrate. The amount of carbohydrate taken is not only complex but also simple.

Complex carbohydrates, chemical structures and fibrous because they force us to work harder and energy is released in a longer time. Low glycemic index so that they stay full for longer. Simple carbohydrates are small sugar molecules that are easily digested in our body. Therefore, we should consume complex carbohydrates.

For example, 1 slice of white bread and cereal bread are of the same calorie, but cereal breads last longer full That's why whole wheat products we say that we should prefer.

Complex Carbohydrate Sources

  • Oat
  • Bran
  • Buckwheat
  • Brown Rice
  • Lentil
  • Apples

Mothers who are in the third month of pregnancy, grain group it is sufficient to consume 5 servings during the day. You can distribute 5 portions to meals. Now I'll share information for your convenience?

1 slice of bread = 1 ladle soup = 3 tablespoons pasta / bulgur / rice = ¼ bagels

Yes, dear mothers, you do not need to cut down on any food you want. 5 servings You can complete. Don't limit yourself.

A little suggestion! You can add 3-4 tablespoons of boiled integrale (whole wheat) pasta to your salad, so you will see more and you will be able to fill your eyes 🙂
