Diet modifications are beneficial for pregnant women as they are more prone to coronavirus infection.


In general, a diet rich in proteins, vitamins and micronutrients should be opted for instead of junk, fried food. 


Addition of nutritious and healthy options into diet should be considered such as citrus fruits, ginger, garlic, broccoli, turmeric, spinach and so many. 

This helps boost up body’s immune system and reduce any infection risk.


But during pregnancy, any diet modifications should always be consulted first with your doctor and then followed as per your body’s needs.
