Pregnant vegetarian

During pregnancy it is important to eat healthy, fresh and well balanced meals.
For some women who are fed by vegeterian principles pregnancy can be a challenge for the consumption of meat, dairy products and fish, in order to ensure the baby as many nutrients.

If a woman during pregnancy and feeding the vegetarian principles, it is useful to consume fish and seafood.
Fish successfully offset the need for protein, it is a source of omega three fats which are important in forming the baby's brain.

During pregnancy, dairy products play a major role in providing much-needed calcium mom and baby. Pregnant women need 1,500 milligrams of calcium per day to avoid losing bone mass.

If you vegeterijanka not consume dairy products are likely to have problems with insufficient calcium intake.Soy milk fortified with calcium may help, and broccoli. However, most people do not have a big enough appetite to those foods meet the need for calcium. In such cases, supplements are necessary.

Vegetarians who eat dairy and eggs do not have much trouble getting all the necessary ingredients. The only possible difference is iron, which is very important to the overall growth of hemoglobin. Iron present in meat in a higher percentage than in other foods, but some good nemesni sources are whole grains, dark green vegetables, peas, cooked lentils, hazelnuts and walnuts. For better absorption of iron is useful meal seasoned with lemon juice or other foods rich in vitamin C. But it is almost impossible to catch up needed iron from vegetables. That's why most mothers vegeterijanki probably has to take iron supplements in tablet form or syrup.
Vegetarians who eat eggs or dairy products should be extra careful to get enough protein, mostly from soybeans or peas. Vegeterians, especially those who refuse any foods of animal origin, must bring enough vitamin B2 and B12, as well as natural amniokiselinu methionine (it rich in whole grains). These three things are extremely important for child development and therefore it is important to them and receive, both during pregnancy and during breastfeeding.

You can have a healthy child under different circumstances. No particular reason why you should start eating meat during pregnancy, or why should you become vegeretarijanac. The decision should make the personal beliefs and priorities, not only now but for years to come.
