Hello Nur, thank you for asking on HealthReplies.com huh..
During pregnancy, a mother is required to maintain food intake because what is eaten by pregnant women also affects the health of the fetus, therefore mothers need to be more selective in choosing a food menu. It is very important for pregnant women to eat nutritious foods, such as high in folic acid, high in iron, or high in calcium. The following are foods and drinks that are recommended to be consumed during pregnancy:
vegetable and fruit. In addition to being high in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants which are certainly useful for pregnancy, vegetables and fruit also have a high fiber content. During pregnancy, mothers tend to have digestive problems, one of which is constipation. Adequate fiber intake and drinking 2-2.5 liters of water a day can prevent constipation problems for pregnant women
Beef, chicken, or fish as well as eggs are high in protein which is needed for fetal development. In addition, beef also contains high iron like vegetables
nuts, these foods contain high iron, calcium, and folic acid
Milk contains calcium and minerals that are needed both for the mother and for the fetus
Regarding the instant food and drink that the mother asked about, it is okay to be consumed during pregnancy, but keep in mind that instant food does not provide complete nutrition. So for your daily food it is not recommended to only rely on instant food. As an alternative, you can modify the instant food that you will consume. For example, you can add vegetables such as carrots, tomatoes, or mushrooms in your instant noodles. It should be noted that you do not consume instant food every day, especially instant noodles. Because instant noodles have a high salt content (sodium/sodium) in the broth seasoning, it is recommended that mothers only use half of the stock seasoning provided at each meal. High salt levels are not recommended for pregnant women because it will increase the risk of high blood pressure, swelling, and others.
