Constipation can be a common problem during Pregnancy, because the pressure exerted by the expanded uterus tends to slow down the digestive system. This is good in a way because it allows more time for nutrients to be absorbed as the food moves more slowly through the system. The RDA for Fiber is approximately 30 gms / day. The discomfort caused by constipation can be eased through adequate intake of fibre, which has been called ‘Nature’s broom’! It can be sourced from:

1. Whole cereals and pulses like whole wheat, oats, brown rice, barley, bajra, bran, moong, matki, etc.
2. All fruits and vegetables especially sweetlime, apple, grapefruit, green peas, cluster beans and all leafy vegetables.
