Nutrients such as vitamin D, folate, iron and calcium are the key nutrients consumed during pregnancy.  Women’s require an additional food containing nutrients and calories to secrete sufficient quantity/quality of milk during lactation period. The daily diet includes addition of 350 calories, 0.5g of protein (first trimester) and 6.9g (second trimester) and 22.7g (third trimester) of pregnancy.
