Nutritious food is very necessary for a pregnant woman. A pregnant woman
requires 80 thousand extra calories in order to give birth to a healthy
child because around 300 additional calories are spent everyday during
pregnancy, which is equal to the amount of calories present in a
glassful of low fat milk, a bread slice, and an apple.
Calcium rich food should be taken during pregnancy. Calcium prevents
high blood pressure in a pregnant woman. A woman should drink two to
three glasses of low fat milk during pregnancy. She should take it

sufficient nutrition. Eat green leafy vegetables and a variety of things
during pregnancy to get all types of minerals and vitamins.
