    I would like to suggest Cottage cheese bowls, Salad bar, Yogurt, String cheese and Single serve fruit bowl. Avoid food with preservatives, fatty foods and sweets (specially when you are diabetic).

    You should also avoid shellfish and store bought sushi.

    Anything high in folate is good for your baby, such as:

    * Black-eyed peas
    * Lentils
    * Okra
    * Kidney beans
    * Great Northern beans
    * Broccoli
    * Iceberg lettuce
    * Beets
    * Lima beans
    * Sunflower seeds
    * Spinach
    * Brussels sprouts
    * Corn
    * Asparagus
    * Baked beans
    * Green peas
    * Baked potato
    * Cabbage
    * Avocados
    * Peanuts
    * Romaine lettuce
    * Tomato Juice
    * Orange juice
    * Strawberries
    * Oranges
    * Eggs
    * Bananas

    • Oily fish - is good for you and your baby but it can contain environmental pollutants. Have no more than two portions of oily fish a week such as mackerel, sardines and trout so you get all the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids, but also cut the risk from the pollutants. Limit tuna to no more than two tuna steaks a week or four medium-size cans of tuna a week. Avoid shark, swordfish and marlin altogether because of the high levels of mercury in these fish, which could harm your baby's developing nervous system.

    best thing is eat lots of icecreams with fresh fruits as well as dry fruits in it. if you dont feel like having spicy things go for sweets, but not more since it may sometime lead to diabetis

    In my experience you should eat what your stomach can take. I was trowing up all the time and there was certain foods I just couldn't stand. Eating food that contains calcium, iron and folic acid (the vegetables with green leafs) is a good thing both for the mother and the baby.

    If you can, try adding powdered malunggay to any dishes you will be serving a pregnant women. Aside from the fact that it will add milk for breastfeeding in the future it will also strengthen her bone.

    Just an addition to this quote. We can also eat not only fruits and some meat, those who are rich in fibers and proteins.

    According to me, the pregnant woman needs 2500 calories per day.So, she should take dairy products, eggs,meat, potatoes and other grain products and she should avoid vitamin A because it may cause damage to the embryo.

    Some Pregnant women should drink more porridge, fish soup for the key. The best food in light primarily. Do not eat too much greasy food. Eat less green vegetables.

    That cant be good for the woman or the baby...you cant possibly expect a woman with child to be sustained by simply eating rice. I mean no disrespect but that statement is ludicrous!
