Radhika Dhopavkar on diet during pregnancy 

Radhika Dhopavkar before having a baby, a week ago, posted a picture on Instagram with a long caption, explaining the diet of pregnant women. She said, “Have more of milk and milk products. Don’t have that much coffee. And are you taking the supplements you need?... Being pregnant means being ready for extra care and extra attention from just about everyone. And the flood of information can only make things confusing. I have found it helpful to stick to the basics and keep track of my daily nutrient intake.
