First Month Pregnancy Food Chart

After experiencing early pregnancy symptoms (breast tenderness, and nausea for example), you assume you are pregnant. And you confirm it through the Home Pregnancy Test Kit. After that, you start thinking about what you should eat at what time during your pregnancy. Having an idea about a pregnancy diet chart can help you know what you should eat in the first month of your pregnancy. 

Before going to say anything on the first month pregnancy food chart, you should know what foods you should include in your diet. Your doctor or a dietician at your doctor’s office can produce a complete food chart for your pregnancy. It, especially for the first month, can include the following foods or food items:

Folate-rich foods 

There is a higher probability for the presence of folic acid pills or foods rich in folic acid in your diet chart for the first month of your pregnancy. To consume enough folic acids, you should include the following foods in your diet:

  • Asparagus 
  • Broccoli
  • Eggs
  • Green leafy vegetables like spinach 

Foods rich in vitamin B6  

Vitamin B6 helps you prevent vomiting and nausea tendencies. Nausea and vomiting are very common in females with one month pregnancy. To get enough vitamin B6 in the first month of your pregnancy, you should consume:

  • Walnut
  • Peanut 
  • Salmon 
  • Bananas 
  • Peanut butter 


Your doctor will advise you to eat fruits throughout your pregnancy. However, in the first month of your pregnancy, you should eat fibre-rich fruits. 3 servings of such fruits helps you stay away from constipation and digestion issues that are common in early pregnancies. Some examples of fibre-rich fruits are:

  • Strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries 
  • Kiwis, mangoes, guavas, and pineapple 
  • Apples, avocados, and pomegranates  

Dairy products 

During the first month of pregnancy, you need vitamins, calcium, and healthy fats in larger amounts. To fulfil this need, you can consume dairy products like:

  • Milk
  • Yoghurt 
  • Cheese 

Iron-rich foods 

Your doctor can suggest you to take iron supplements or eat foods that contain iron in a higher amount. It is, as iron carries oxygen throughout your body. A lower amount of iron can make you have iron-deficiency anaemia (low Hb) that can create problems for you and your growing baby. 

Food chart for the first month pregnancy 

Your dietician or gynaecologist will produce a pregnancy diet chart that will include all the essential nutrients for your entire pregnancy with a focus on the first month. Your first month pregnancy food chart look like the following one:
