    During pregnancy, it is must to have nutrient rich foods within each of five food groups. 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).
