General diet plan during pregnancy 


As we have discussed in Pancha bhoota "Earth" about healthy foods, all foods have their own nutritional values. It is therefore wise to eat all fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, grains, legumes etc. This is the best way to achieve balanced nutrition. We do not personally recommend to use multivitamin capsules. instead get the nutrition from natural food. My wife  in her pregnancy did not use any vitamin supplements instead ate a well balanced food. If a pregnant women has any problem taking well balanced food then it is better for her to use the food supplements in capsule forms.
