What foods to eat during your third trimester of pregnancy?

third trimester Indian foods, recipes. The countdown has begun. These last 3 months are equally crucial for you and your baby. All major growth and maturation of all the organs get completed in this trimester. Physically and mentally you need to relax, exercise well and eat well. This is the time for you to gain and stock up on all important nutrients and prepare yourself for labour.

Your priority during the third trimester of pregnancy should be to choose a variety of nutritious foods from the following food groups:

1) Cereals and whole grains : It is recommended to consume about 7-8 servings of cereals per day. Cereals provide you the necessary energy which is required in increased amounts during pregnancy. They also provide fibre which will keep constipation at bay. Try to avoid refined products like maida. Include a variety of whole grains like wheat, barley, bajra, ragi in your diet.

2) Pulses and legumes : It is recommended to consume about 1-2 servings of pulses per day. They are vegetarian source of protein and hence should be used in combination with cereals to enhance the protein quality. Dals like mung, masoor, toovar, pulses in the form of sprouts or as whole are good to go in salads, pulao’s and sabzi’s.

3) Milk and Milk products : It is recommended to consume about 3-4 servings of dairy products per day. They provide high quality proteins and calcium. Calcium and protein requirements also increase during pregnancy to support the growth and development of the foetus. So it is suggested that you eat dairy products like milk, yoghurt, paneer etc.

4) Vegetables : It is recommended to consume about 5-6 servings of vegetables per day. Include a variety of colourful vegetables to get a wide range of nutrients. Choose all types of vegetables like leafy ones such as spinach, methi, cabbage, lettuce etc. greens such as capsicum, broccoli, peas etc, orange ones like carrots and pumpkin, reds like tomatoes and red capsicum, yellow such as corn and yellow capsicum, purple like brinjal and purple cabbage etc.

5) Fruits : It is recommended to consume about 3-4 servings of fruits per day. Fruits provide a variety of nutrients and antioxidants too. Just like vegetables, one should consume a variety of colorful fruits too to make your diet colorful like a rainbow. Fruits like apple, pineapple, pear, oranges, guava, watermelon, grapes etc.

Include a variety of healthy nuts to give you omega-3 fats. Nuts such as walnuts, almonds, pistachios etc. Peanuts are also a good option for pregnant ladies because they are cheap in cost.
