                      How much food we need in pregnency and healthy diet

Make sure that the woman is eating enough quantities foods in pregnancy per day to meet her daily energy needs. Then, make sure the types of foods used to prepare her meals and snacks give her enough critical nutrients to meet her daily diet needs.

 Women and adolescent girls who are not pregnant or lactating, but who carry out   physically hard activities, should eat extra energy-containing foods, such as meat, fish oils/fats, fried and sweet foods,avocado, coconut and other oilseeds and nuts,cereal and beans/legumes,cheese, and animal milk.

  • On this diet, women of reproductive age and pregnant women need extra iron from supplements to meet their needs
  • .Use of animal foods, such as meat, fish, and eggs, will reduce the    amount of cereal and beans/legumes needed, and provide other essential micronutrients,
  •   such as zinc and calcium.
  •  1 cup=200 ml., 1 spoon=10 ml.
