Article by Rachel Ang & Cherlynn Ng
Feeling overwhelmed during pregnancy because it seems like there’s so much to remember? Fret not! The first thing to take note of would be having a good diet as it plays an integral role in having a smooth delivery and healthy baby. Here are 4 main dos and 3 don’ts to guide you when it comes to your diet.
- Drink plenty of water and milk: The recommended intake is about 1700ml – 2100ml a day. Milk not only keeps you hydrated, but is high in protein and calcium too.
- Eat more fruits and vegetables: Consume about 400g – 500g of vegetables and 200g – 350g of fruits every day for optimal vitamins and minerals.
- Get high-quality protein: Have about 150g of meat and 50g of eggs daily.
- Have DHA intake: This benefits the baby’s mental development: A recommended amount is 25g – 40g of nuts a day and 1-2 meals of fish per week.
- Eat raw food such as raw seafood, raw meat and half-boiled eggs.
- Take anything spicy and irritating in case of diarrhea.
- Smoke or drink.
As the saying goes, you are what you eat. We wish you a smooth birth!
