It is understood and outset now: right food would assist in the organ development of the baby. The baby has short time for developing its vital organs like liver, heart, kidneys and the lungs. A diet lacking Calcium or Vitamin D could possibly hinder the baby's tooth and bone development.
Pregnant mothers always wonder that what they should eat & what not. Some says a mother should take the diet of two people because she needs to take care of one more life. But is it true, if yes what they should eat & if not how the baby will get proper diet to grow as a healthy child.
On the other hand, light eating all through the pregnancy may stop the growth of your baby as it is required. Research has shown that whatever the mother eats during her pregnancy tenure, would affect the baby's food habits in his future life.Eating lots of fruits and vegetables can ensure that the baby would enjoy eating them in the course of time.
Some studies have also told that patterns of eating would contribute in the development of your baby's personality. It is said that babies of undernourished mothers tend to smile a lot lesser and are drowsier compared to those who were nourished healthy. The baby's brain always needs healthy eating habits mainly during the final period, so It is therefore the best time for eating proteins, omega-3 fatty acids and calories as they make sure about optimum development of the brain.
In the same manner, a healthy pregnancy diet has several components or ingredients that a pregnant mother should take note of in order to ensure her baby's proper growth. Some of these components, like vitamins and minerals, would provide the necessary nutrients for the development of the baby's bodily systems and organs, such as the brain, spine, bones and nervous system.
A mother who follows healthy pregnancy diet guidelines carefully has better chances of providing the proper nutrition for her child, and is better assured that her child is developing and functioning normally.A healthy pregnancy diet does not necessarily involve having a grand and complicated scheme for planning meals; it simply involves putting additional effort in paying attention to the food you eat.
Consulting your doctor is a good measure for you to determine the changes that must be made in the diet as the pregnancy progresses.
Did you know that the brain is made up of a huge percentage of fat? Your baby's brain needs a lot of fat! Low fat diets starve the brains of our children. Is it any surprise that learning disabilities, attention disorders, and lack of imagination are on the rise?

The same is true of vitamins and minerals from fruits.
Your baby's brain and body must have fats.
A low-fat diet will keep you and your baby unhealthy. You need a higher fat diet during pregnancy.
