hi teja! in first trimester u would need folic acid. You can get your dose of folic acid by including wheat germ, pulses, nuts, green leafy vegetables especially spinach, oranges, fresh beans in your diet. To add green leafy vegetables in your daily diet (good source of all the above nutrients) you may include any one of these recipes/dishes in your daily diet- saag, green soup, green roti, green raita, green chicken, green dhokla/green idli. (Boil leafy greens, blend and use them to make different batters and doughs).. Iron-rich foods: are necessary for foetal growth, expansion of mother's tissues and for the growing volume of blood which in turn supply nutrients to the foetus. For non-vegetarians organ meats and eggs help in providing iron. For vegetarians, iron-rich foods such as dark green leafy vegetables, such as mustard greens, chulai, mint, methi, and bathua are good sources of iron. Other sources include soybeans, lobia, lentils, whole wheat dalia, riceflakes and fruits such as watermelon, raisins and nuts like pistachio. to increase iron absorption u would consume vitamin C rich food.

besides this u would need to add Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) which helps tackle nausea, a common problem faced in pregnancy. Eating wholegrains, especially cereals and legumes, wheat bran, wheat germ, dried yeast, nuts, seeds, leafy vegetables, and meat and egg helps in meeting your B6 requirements. Also Water and fluids intake should be maintained during Pregnancy .have 8-10 glasses of water per day. In addition to this, make sure you include some healthy drinks like tender coconut water, buttermilk and fresh fruit juice, to always stay hydrated. hope this helps!!
