I hope you are well. Gestational diabetes is diabetes that happens during pregnancy due to certain hormones. However, if you keep your weight in check and eat healthily, then the levels would be in control automatically. Eat these foods on regular basic- oats, daily, barley, ragi, yogurt, nuts, and seeds, fresh fruits, vegetables, lean meat, and eggs. -Drink enough water. - Stay active as much as you can - Avoid outside, processed or refined foods. - Avoid taking stress There are no specific fruits that reduce gestational diabetes, however, consuming all the fruits and vegetables can lower your blood sugar levels. Stick to seasonal fruits like Apple, pear, pomegranate, plum, and cherries. It won't affect your baby if you eat healthily and keep your blood sugar levels under control :) Don't worry, everything's going to be fine.
