Why you should be eating high-fiber foods now

Team AckoFeb 8, 2024

A healthy diet defines the health of the baby and is essential for its development as well. By eating right, you will be able to give all the required nutrients to your baby. Include a lot of fiber in your diet as it will keep your bowel movements smooth and save you from constipation throughout your pregnancy cycle. Due to the intake of various multivitamins and iron on a daily basis, you may develop the problem of constipation. So, it is always a good idea to have a high fiber diet that includes fruits, salad, and sprouts to keep your digestive system healthy and smooth.



    Fiber is found in plants and it is easily digested by the human body. During pregnancy, when your body is undergoing so many changes and working so hard, it needs something to help out when it comes to the process of digestion. Also, during pregnancy, there is a production of progesterone hormone that leads to the slower digestion process. So, eating fiber on a regular basis helps in smooth bowel movements. High-fiber food helps in keeping your weight constant and manages it well. It also helps in preventing the rise in blood sugar and reduces the risk of heart disease. Consume berries, oranges, cucumber, kiwi, mango, apple, avocado, carrots, sprouts to increase the content of fiber in your diet.
