Answer:
apart from general do's and don'ts, you should seek nutritional counselling (diet plan and monitoring is important in your case)in person form a dietitian on this. Avoid all types of refined, processed, sweet and fried foods. Your focus should be on vegetables, fruits, whole grain cereals like oats, bajra, dalia and whole pulses etc. Read the following blog on our website for more details https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/diabetes-during-pregnancy-gestational-diabetes/649
