Eating well is an important part of managing gestational diabetes. It is important to maintain stable blood sugar levels to reduce the risk of diabetes-related health problems such as overweight, gestational diabetes, and infertility. Here are some dietary tips for pregnant and diabetic women:

1. Eat often and less often: Eat several small meals throughout the day to help maintain stable blood sugar. Eat at least 3 main meals and 2-3 snacks per day.

2. Choose high fiber foods: High fiber foods can help reduce sugar absorption and help maintain stable blood sugar. Eat plenty of fresh vegetables, tubers and fruits, whole grains, and beans.

3. Limit starches and sugars: Limit foods high in starch and sugar, including white bread, candies, sweets and fat products.

4. Choose healthy proteins: Choose healthy proteins like chicken, fish, beans, tofu, nuts, and sugar-free dairy products.

5. Avoid eating too much salty food: Avoid eating too much salty food, because it can increase blood pressure and harm health.

6. Drink enough water: Drinking enough water is very important to help maintain stable blood sugar and avoid dehydration.

7. Consult a doctor: Consult your doctor or dietitian for more on the diet that is best for you.

In addition, pregnant women should regularly check their blood sugar and follow the directions and doses of insulin prescribed by their doctor to ensure that blood sugar is well controlled throughout pregnancy.
