Maternal diet during pregnancy is of special importance both for the proper growth of the fetus and for the health status of the pregnant woman. Among other dietary practices, habitual consumption of dairy products constitutes a significant part of a balanced diet during pregnancy.
Specifically, a pregnant woman should consume 4-6 servings of dairy products on a daily basis. One serving of dairy products provides 300 mg of calcium and is equivalent to one of the following:
- 1 cup of milk (250 ml)
- 200 grams of yogurt
- 30 grams of cheese
