Can I Eat Chicken Nuggets While 5 Weeks Pregnant?
Assalamualaikum, I’m 5 weeks pregnant, can I get 5 weeks pregnant to eat chiken nuggets.
Hello, thanks for the question.
Pregnancy in the first trimester or young pregnancy is highly recommended to eat foods that have high nutritional value, because at this time is an important time for fetal growth in the womb so that the nutritional needs for both mother and fetus must be fulfilled. During pregnancy, mothers are not advised to eat raw foods, seafood (must be careful of seafood contaminated with mercury), fast food, and so forth. Foods like Chicken nuggets that are processed on their own can be consumed, but if it is processed foods that use preservatives it is best to avoid consuming them too often because it is feared that it can interfere with fetal development. Some nutrients and food needed during pregnancy include:
Folic acid, found in many green vegetables like spinach, mustard greens, lettuce, broccoli, carrots, corn, soybeans, long beans, beans, avocados, and so forth.
Iron, many are found in beef, beans, eggs, spinach, etc.
Fiber, found in many fruits such as papaya, bananas, vegetables, etc.
Protein, found in meat, eggs, fish, etc.
Water and other minerals.
To meet the nutritional needs of pregnant women, you should eat foods that have good nutritional content that contain carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, and minerals that are sufficient for pregnancy. In the first trimester of pregnancy nausea and vomiting often occur, so it is advisable to eat small portions but often, also avoid foods that have a taste and smell that is too stimulating. If you have doubts about your nutritional needs, you can consult a nutritionist.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
