Weight gain in pregnancy
A lady on an average gains 10-11 kgs of total weight during pregnancy. If your weight is not increasing accordingly you can follow the following diet:
- On waking up- 4-5 soaked almonds + 1 Cup of milk
- Breakfast- 1 Bowl upma/poha/oats porridge
- Mid-morning- 1 Fruit
- Lunch- 2 Rotis with sabzi and dal or dal chawal with salad or paneer pulav with raita
- Evening- 1 Fruit + 1 Bowl poha chivda/dry bhel/ragda /chana chaat/rajma chaat
- Dinner- Same as lunch
- Bed-time- 1 Cup milk.
