Best Diary Products To Take During Pregnancy.

Cow's milk

Cow's milk is very important during pregnancy because it contains nutrients that helps in your baby's development.Cow's milk contain vitamin D and Calcium which aid in strong bones of the baby.

Cow's milk also contain proteins which is responsible for building blocks of the baby's cell.

If you're trying to reduce the amount of saturated fat in your diet, you may want to choose 1 percent or skim milk. Otherwise, it's fine to drink 2 percent or whole milk.

Soy milk

Soy milk has nearly as much protein as cow's milk and is often fortified to match the calcium content of cow's milk. But your body may not get all of that calcium, since soy contains a natural compound that inhibits calcium absorption. 

Flavored non-dairy milks often contain added sugars, so if you're watching your sugar intake, look for an unflavored, unsweetened variety. 

Soy milk has the closest nutritional value to cow's milk compared to other common non-dairy milks, so some experts say it's the best alternative milk to drink during pregnancy.
