Parental supplements consist of vitamin B complex, Vitamin C and Vitamin D and Folic acid. Folic acid performs an important role in brain development of a baby. Vitamin B12 helps in the formation of RBC’s, Vitamin C synthesizes collagen and vitamin D enhances growth on bones. You can take readily made tablets of parental supplements because foods may disturb your stomach.
If you want a smarter baby taking omega-3 fatty acids is very essential because it helps in the production of neurons. The good source of omega-3 is fish, eggs, walnuts, red meat, and cereals. Always be cautious while eating fish. You must always avoid swordfish, tilefish, and shark because they have high mercury levels.
3- Citrus fruits and vegetables
Fruits and vegetable are full of anti-oxidants which defend against free radicals. Free radicals may damage brain tissues of your baby. As the name is concerned there is a huge source of fruits and vegetables.
During pregnancy, you have to double your intake of iron. Iron helps in the transport of oxygen to the baby. If in case you are iron deficient it may affect the IQ level of your baby and its growth too. So, for iron, you must consult your doctor to test it and prescribe you accurate dosage of it.
Protein is very important for the formation of new cell and hormones for you baby. You must increase you protein dosage up to 10grams per day. You can do it simply by eating yogurt, beans, and beef.
If you consume alcohol during pregnancy your baby may develop behavior problems, learning disabilities, attention deficit disorder, hyperactivity and aggressive behavior. There is no safe amount of alcohol during pregnancy so better to avoid it.
