The selection of dishes was directly supervised by TupTup’s nutritionist doctor, Ildefonso Caldern, who explains that during pregnancy “food must be taken care of especially since it is the only way to provide all the necessary nutrients to the mother. and his child “.
This is why it is convenient that every woman from the start of pregnancy follows a diet as varied as possible with 4 objectives:
1 Cover the nutritional needs of the pregnant woman.
Prepare the mother’s body for childbirth.
3 Meet the baby’s nutritional needs.
4 Ensure the energy reserve in the form of fat for lactation.
In this sense, the nutritionist explains that pregnant women should ingest one gram per kilo per day of protein, or about 175 grams per day of carbohydrates and fats in small amounts, depending on weight and physical activity. For example, if you are not exercising, you should not exceed 2,500 kilocalories on average per day. An amount that varies for each person, it is therefore advisable to consult it directly with a specialist.
The general recommendation is to eat five meals a day. Regarding the distribution of macronutrients, it should follow the same pattern as for the general population. Among the total calories of the diet, 50 to 60% will be provided by carbohydrates, 15 to 20% by proteins and 30 to 35% by lipids or fats, the intake of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats being preferred. You also need to get the correct amount of vitamins and minerals.
According to the doctor, an average weight gain of 10 to 11 kilograms is recommended during pregnancy. And he recommends banning false myths, such as “eating for two”. The good thing would be to say that food is doubly important during the gestation period, because the diet “must adapt to new needs, providing all the nutrients in adequate quantities, for each stage of pregnancy,” he explains. -he.
