What to eat when pregnant on vegetarian diet?
Hey-hey. So, my sister is pregnant now and she is worrying a bit about eating healthy while she carries a baby in herself. Of course, her previous nutrition was different and she allowed herself fast food, soda etc. When she was planning a pregnancy, she started to cut down on such food and think more of the healthy way of life. Now, when my sister is pregnant she cannot move this way anymore and needs special recommendations on how to eat healthy not to harm a baby.
Her doctor said that she should eat a lot of vitamins and when she suddenly wants to eat something ridiculous (like chalk or ice) – then she has to google it and find the products that will feel the lack of vitamins she needed. My sister usually wants some kind of salty food, so she tries to find the products of such kind that are rich in vitamins. Besides, she tries to consume fruits and vegetables to enrich her organism with all the necessary substances for a baby.
Ok, this is good, but what can she consume now – what tips and pieces of advice can you give us that won’t harm her and her baby? Thank you!
