    Here’s What you Need to Know about Diet Chart For 10-week Pregnancy

    Pregnancy is a challenging time in a woman’s life. Motherhood is a great feeling to experience. The first 10 weeks fall in the first trimester, which is crucial. Hence, you must take extreme care of your diet. What you consume can greatly affect the health of the baby. The diet should be accurately balanced with proper portions of vitamins, nutrients, and minerals. A healthy diet is directly proportional to the mother's health and the baby’s immunity.

    Choosing what to eat and what not to eat seems like a big task while pregnant. After all, you are not eating for one but two. Here are some things you must include in your week 10 pregnancy diet.

    • One must understand calorie intake. In the first trimester, most women don’t need to consume extra calories. Hence, here are a few things you must keep in mind while consuming calories.
      • Consuming low-fat milk: Low-fat milk gives enough nutrition and calcium for a growing baby. At the same time, limit the amount of calorie intake to ensure that you stay fit and full of energy.
      • Fat-free yoghurt: Yoghurt is a good way to balance your diet. It helps you improve your digestion system. Instead of artificial flavours, go for natural fruits, such as strawberries.
      • Looking for a snack? Instead of wafers and dip, go for healthy options. You can pick up cucumbers and carrots and eat them with hummus. You can also easily prepare the hummus at home. Just grind some boiled chickpeas together, throw in some flavours, such as black pepper and olive oil and give it a good churn. This is a great snack to include in your 10th-week pregnancy diet.
    • You must include vitamin A, iron, folic acid, and iodine in your diet. However, avoid taking supplements unless necessary and recommended by your gynaecologist. You may include seafood such as fish, oysters, and cod liver oil in your diet, daily. These food items are also low in mercury levels.
    • Eggs are a great way to add vitamins and proteins to your diet. It also helps in the development of the brain of your baby. You can have boiled eggs or make a meal out of them. One such amazing recipe is spinach egg. Cook the spinach leaves and saute them in a pan. Cut up boiled eggs or crack them open raw in the pan. Cook it on a slow flame. You can eat this with rotis in your dinner, with a side of salad and yoghurt for a wholesome meal.
    • Throw in the greens in your food as much as you can. Constipation is an ailment most pregnant women have. This can be corrected by adding leafy vegetables such as spinach, broccoli, and kale to your daily diet.
    • Craving for a sweet snack? Traditional Indian sweets might not be the best option at this time of pregnancy. In your 10-week pregnancy diet, you must throw in berries and fruits. This is a great way to tend your sweet craving. At the same time, they are rich in antioxidants and fibres.
    • You must make a big switch to healthier choices. Opt for brown rice instead of white rice. Remove maida, bread, and pasta from your diet. You can start consuming more whole grains such as bajri, oats, and jowar. These are rich in proteins and make you feel full.
    • Lastly, don’t forget what you must eat for your evening snack. A handful of dry fruits must be an essential part of your diet chart for the 10-week period of pregnancy. You can also add nuts and seeds to add a good amount of fibre.

    So now ‘we should know about the food we eat’ concept is greatly implied. Whatever diet chart you follow, you have to stick to it and follow it perfectly. Overall, the care, nurture and steps taken would greatly result in a healthy baby. The mother should not be stressed and confused by all the other zillion opinions. An expecting mother should consume food rich in vitamins, minerals, calcium, and protein, such as seafood, legumes, and eggs, in her 10-week pregnancy diet.
