Is it safe for a pregnant woman to have threptin biscuits?
Q: My wife, 28 years old, is pregnant (11 weeks). Is it safe for her to have threptin biscuits? I heard that vitamin A should be avoided. The box does not elaborate on the contents. Appreciate your response on this.
A:Yes, she can have threptin biscuits. They have good protein content. Vitamin A is required for all people in a certain amount. Please see her doctor to determine her requirement as per the stage of pregnancy she is at. To meet her requirements of iron, though they may not suffice, iron rich foods are egg, red meats, green leafy vegetables, garden cress seeds etc. Include these regularly in the diet.
