All three trimesters require almost same amounts of basic food with a little change in the quantities along with the addition of a few more things. However, if there is something that accompanies all the diet charts, it is two glasses of milk along with a spoon of the important health drink every day.

Your Trimester-wise Guide to a Good Diet and Fuller Health

The 9 months of your pregnancy are divided into three trimesters and the requirements of the body keep

changing as the foetus grows. Keeping a check on your diet is the most critical aspect during this time.

Let’s look at what you should eat in all three trimesters one by one.

1 st trimester of pregnancy

Right from the day of conception, your first trimester starts and lasts up to the end of week 12. It is an

important trimester for your baby's development. The organs start shaping up, your baby starts moving and

muscles form. By week 12, your baby is the size of a peach.

Tips for a healthy diet:

Eat 5 portions of veggies and fruits regularly to keep up with the high requirements of vitamins A and

C, minerals and fibre.

Do not forget to include starchy carbohydrates in your meals. Consume cereal such as breads, pasta

and rice every day.

Lean meats, fish and other proteins like eggs, beans and pulses should be included in your diet. They

are rich in protein, iron and folic acid. Eat oily fish at least once or maximum twice a week.

Dairy products should definitely be included in daily diet as they provide wholesome nutrition your

body needs.

2nd trimester of pregnancy

The time has come for your baby to grow from a peachy little size to a 35 cm long baby. This is the time you

develop your baby bump. By this time you will hopefully start to leave behind the troubles of morning sickness

and gain some energy. The second trimester starts from week 13 and remains until week 26.

Tips for a healthy diet:

Continue your 5 portions of veggies and fruits per day but increase consumption of green leafy

vegetables such as cabbage, spinach, broccoli etc. to improve the folic acid and iron intake.

Dairy products still play an important role.

Continue your routine of eating oily fish.

Increase protein intake and start consuming lean meat, fish, beans, lentils and tofu twice a day.

Go for healthy snacking and include toast, sandwiches, fruits, veggie sticks, yogurt and cereal in your


3 rd trimester of pregnancy

This trimester marks the beginning of the countdown period and your excitement increases with each passing

day. This final trimester, you will have to keep a check on your diet even more carefully than the first two.

Tips for a healthy diet:

The fruits and veggies would still be your 5 meals of the day.

Your calcium needs will be taken care of by dairy products consumed 2-3 times a day.

The extra calorie requirement however, should be covered using healthy snacks only. Extra care

should be taken to ensure consumption of high sugar foods such as chocolates, cakes and biscuits is

limited or altogether avoided.

Now, you are aware of the diet requirements your body needs during all the trimesters for a healthy baby and a healthy

you. But, there is one thing you need to add to all three trimesters in order to provide for holistic nutrition for your body. A

health drink, known to be suitable for pregnant women and equipped with essential nutrients, is to be added to a glass of

milk so as to fulfil calcium and vitamin needs. Also, to ensure that the calcium in milk and other dairy products is being

extracted by your body, you need to include vitamin D in your diet. This required vitamin D is prevalent in the health

drinks available in the market. Therefore, there is a definite need to include health drink in daily diet.
