  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    You should divide your daily meals to ensure you are eating a balanced diet comprising of proteins, calcium, vitamins, minerals, and carbohydrates.
    Pulses, meat, chicken, eggs and beans are excellent sources of proteins. Dairy products are good source of calcium and fruits & vegetables are good source for minerals & vitamins.
    For meal planning, Indian foods have been divided into different groups (make sure you eat one item everyday from each of these food groups).
    Cereals & Grains
    Pulses & Beans/ Meat, Chicken, Egg
    Milk and Milk products
    Green leafy vegetables, other vegetables, tubers and roots
    Fruits
