Nutritional Guide for Pregnancy

Every mother-to-be wishes to provide the best nutrients for her baby, so as to allow her little one to grow up healthily. However, a typical diet for pregnancy is not simply a menu doubling up regular diet portion. We will be explaining to you how to come up with a meal for pregnancy which is nutritious while keeping the mother-to-be beautiful and fit at the same time.

Note: 1 bowl=250-300ml, 1 cup=240ml

What extra nutrients do Pregnant Women need to supplement?

1. Algal DHA

Mothers-to-be requires a daily 300mg of DHA supplementation. Not only to allow the baby to be smarter, the University of Kansas, USA, has also discovered that DHA can reduce the chance of premature birth through a recent research!* Professor Carlson has even suggested that mothers-to-be should choose algal DHA extracted from micro algae, as algae has a lesser chance of pollution when compared to deep sea fishes, therefore the problem of mercury and heavy metal pollution is no longer a problem.

2. Folic Acid

Folic Acid is an important vitamin which fosters the normal growth of babies.

It is suggested that mothers-to-be should start supplementing 400mg of folic acid daily 3 months before pregnancy, and it should be increased to 800mg when pregnancy starts.
