Polyunsaturated fatty acids that fish contains have the function to prevent abortion, premature labor and slow growth of fetus. And these polyunsaturated fatty acids can't be synthesized in body. It only can be obtained through foods, and the best source is fish. Therefore, nutrition experts recommend that pregnant women had better eat fish 2to 3 times a week.

The second is rabbit meat. It is high in protein, and low in fat. So it is suitable for those expectant mothers who are fat before pregnancy or women who are overweight.

Chicken is also a good choice for expectant mother for it is low in fat. And chicken is very tender, and with an even and not wasteful distribution of the fat, so it is easy to digested.

Beef also has abundant nutrition. Beef not only contains the abundant protein, iron and copper, but also contains abundant vitamin B.

Pork has the highest fat. The excessive intake of pork is unhealthy. So, expectant mother should pay attention to it and better take a little of pork.
