Diet chart for getting pregnant

Each planner features a variety of delicious dishes and handy tips that are just right for you at your stage of pregnancy.
Our first trimester planners have dishes that are rich in folate, which is good for your baby's developing nervous system.
Getting the proper nutrition during pregnancy is easy if you’ve already been following a well-balanced healthy vegan diet, but you should be aware of increased needs for folic acid, vitamin B12, and vitamin D during your vegan pregnancy.Here's a handy chart I made that shows the eight main vitamins, minerals, and nutrients you need to (lightly) monitor when you're pregnant.
One of the biggest worries people have about the vegan diet is the supply of calcium, whether they’re pregnant or not. Folic acid is super important for proper nutrition during pregnancy, and especially important very early in pregnancy. The last of the highly recognized fears of being vegan and pregnant revolve around getting enough protein. Vitamin D is really important for your growing fetus as it helps form the bones and tissues of your baby.


If you eat a vast majority of the food on this entire list, you probably are doing really well at maintaining a balanced vegan diet and getting the necessary nutrition during pregnancy.
You’ll field this question OFTEN as a pregnant vegan, so it’s best to school you in the hard facts so you’re armed with answers.Proteins are essential for humans, and make up a large percentage of our body weight. You need to have sufficient supplies of vitamin D in order for your body to absorb adequate calcium.Vitamin D is available in some animal sources like eggs (at least, in healthy animals that aren’t factory farmed or fed unnatural diets, so in very, very few nowadays), in synthetic form added into milks and cereals, and from the sun.
If you have a deficiency in folic acid, your baby has a higher risk of being born with spina bifida, hydrocephalus, or other neurological disorders.All doctors recommend that if there’s any chance you might become pregnant that you ensure you are getting plenty of folic acid in your diet, and possibly taking a supplement, just to be safe. Of course, you should never allow yourself to burn.You can also get vitamin D nutrition during pregnancy from a vegan prenatal vitamin.
You only need a slightly increased amount of vitamin E during pregnancy.For good nutrition during pregnancy, include wheat germ, nut oil, vegetable oils, sunflower seeds, almonds, avocado, mango, and peanut butter for good sources of vitamin E.
It can only help to add in a vegan prenatal vitamin to make sure that if you have a bad eating day, you're always covered.Sources for Nutrition During PregnancyYour Vegetarian Pregnancy, Dr.


The normal RDA for folic acid is 180 mcg, and before and during pregnancy that amount increases to 400 mcg daily.
Score!When you are pregnant you will need more vitamin B6 than usual because of the higher amounts of estrogen in your body. While there are few plant sources that naturally contain vitamin B12, some are now fortified with it, and it’s easy enough to take a B12 vitamin once a week.
