PREGNANCY NEED FOR VEGETARIAN DIET
Illustration
Some research give result that for pregnancy woman who are vegetarian should not need to stop being a vegetarian. That woman should countinue with their chosen diet. But that vegetarian woman should pay more attention for what to eat. If a vegetarian eat poor vegetarian food, it will harmful as a poor omnovorous one. There are 3 primary kind of elements that the vegetarian woman should need to get:

Protein

Mother and child absolutely need protein, this is very essential for the heath of them. The Vegetarian diet should balance the protein, this diet usually contains more than enough protein for mother needs. The doctor say, when the mother at pregnancy, the protein requirements should about 11 percent or about 60 grams for daily needs. Some experts say that the realistic taget for protein need at pregnancy woman is around 50 grams.

If your vegetarian diet includes enough milk, eggs, cheese, lentils, beans and soya, the protein that you need will be enough. This is not big problem for vegetarians, but vegans should need to work harder to make sure the protein intake is adequate. Some individual plant based protein sources lack all the essential amino acids, and so should be eaten in combination pulses with grains or with seeds, for example. A dish made with lentils or chickpeas and served with brown rice would be a perfect vegan protein source.

Calcium

The most important think for baby development is Calcium, this is need for baby's bones and teeth. This should need to make sure that the intake is adequate, especually at the last stages of the pregnancy. This is especially true for women under 19 years old, whose own bone development is still taking place.

A pregnancy woman should consume at least 4 portions of calcium rich food daily. This is such as milk, cheese, tofu (if made using calcium sulfate as a coagulant), youghurt, dark green vegetables such as kale, broccoli and spinach, nuts, seeds and dried fruit.

Your body need to get good supply of vitamin D to help the body absorb the calcium. The vitamin D could be found at dairy products, and also from the exposure of sunlight. For vegan, look for Vitamin D-enriched soya drinks or margarine. Becareful for take Vitamin D supplements, this should only be taken with the approval of your physician or dietician, as an excess of the vitamin could be harmful to your child.

Vitamin B12 (The vital vitamin)

During the pregnancy, you should increase the consumtion of vitamin B12, this is essential for production of tissue and cells. The vitamin B12 also needs for the plan to breastfeed the baby. Daily recommendation target of vitamin B12 is 1.5 micrograms. Lacto-vegetarians should have no difficulty in achieving this - a single egg, for example, will meet about 80 percent of your daily needs.

Unfortunately, there are few reliable plant-based sources of Vitamin B12. If you are vegan, be sure to include certain fortified foods in you diet. These include vitamin-enriched soya milk and cereals. Quorn and yeast extracts such as Marmite and Vecon are particularly good sources. But check the label, as not all brands of these products contain this important vitamin.

The summaries, if you are become pregnant doesn't mean you have to stop your vegetarian or vegan diet. You should continue your diet by providing the well balance of food that you eat. Please give more attention for get enough protein, calcium and vitamin B12, than you will not have problem with your diet during the pregnancy. (by Janey Macleod, Baby.Topresource.NET Reference)
