  3. Indeed that's quite a healthy diet plan you proposed. During pregnancy days a women needs 300 more calories from her previous intake of calories. These calories contain all the essential nutrients like protein & calcium which is for strengthening of mother’s as well child’s bones. One more essential component is folic acid, folic acid is used to avoid neural tube birth defects, as well as for more iron to help red blood cells carry oxygen to the baby.
