  1. Thanks for your consultation.It would have been better if you would have consulted a registered dietician .Since you are worried let me suggest you to
    try one of these ideas for breakfast, lunch and dinner to get you started:

    a bowl of wholegrain cereal, such as porridge, with semi-skimmed milk, or
    2 slices of wholegrain toast with spread and/or jam, or
    lower fat/sugar yogurt and fruit.
    a chicken salad sandwich, or
    a small pasta salad, or
    soup (containing lots of vegetables and pulses) and a wholegrain roll.
    lasagne and salad
    roast chicken with potatoes and vegetables
    chicken stir fry, vegetables and basmati rice
    chicken tortillas and salad
    salmon and noodles
    curry and basmati rice
    Some changes in diet to make are to reduce the fat, sugar or salt content of your food
    include more fruit and vegetables
    reduce your portion sizes.
    Making any of these changes would certainly help, but there is no need to go over the top and radically change everything.

    It isn't necessary to eat snacks between meals if you aren't taking any medication for your gestational diabetes. If you treat your diabetes with certain medications that put you at risk of hypos (low blood glucose), you may need to snack. However, if your medications are making you snack regularly to prevent hypos, speak to your healthcare team. Regular snacks can make it difficult to maintain a healthy weight, and this can affect your diabetes management in the long term.

    If you do get peckish between meals, choose healthier snacks such as fruit and vegetables, vegetable sticks with lower fat hummus, yogurt, nuts and seeds. The key is to plan for these snacks, be mindful of your portions and monitor their effect on your blood glucose levels.

    Limit your intake of calorie-rich, but nutritionally poor, snacks and drinks, such as sweets, cakes, crisps, fizzy drinks, energy drinks etc.
    The safest option is not to drink alcohol at all while you’re pregnant. It is particularly important to avoid alcohol during the first three months of pregnancy as alcohol may be associated with increased risk of miscarriage.

    We all know that binge drinking is not good for our health. For pregnant women, getting drunk, or binge drinking (defined as more than 7.5 units of alcohol on a single occasion) can be harmful to the unborn baby.

    Alcohol can also make hypoglycaemia (hypos) more likely to occur if you treat your gestational diabetes with insulin or glibenclamide.

    What is recommended in the long term?
    A healthy, balanced diet – that means eating regular meals, choosing good sources of carbohydrates and watching your portions, including fruit and vegetables, and eating less saturated fat, sugar and salt.

    Don’t aim to lose weight while you’re pregnant – this could be unsafe for you and your baby. However, small changes to your diet and physical activity levels can help you to avoid gaining excess weight during your pregnancy. This will help you to manage your gestational diabetes better and increase your chances of having a healthy pregnancy.

    People with gestational diabetes are at a high risk of getting the condition again in subsequent pregnancies as well as getting Type 2 diabetes in the future. Therefore, it is very important to continue your healthy eating plan after having your baby in order to manage your weight and reduce your risk of developing gestational diabetes in subsequent pregnancies, as well as reduce your long term risk of getting Type 2 diabetes.
