11... How to have Healthy child?
Eating a Healthy food like Vegetables, Grains, pulses,fruits etc... in pregnancy will help you to get all the vitamins and minerals you need.  There are some vitamins and minerals that are especially important.
It is best to get vitamins and minerals from the food you eat, but when you are pregnant you will need to take some supplements as well.
Do not take vitamin A supplements, or any supplements containing vitamin A, as too much could harm your baby.
You can get supplements from pharmacies and supermarkets, or your doctor may be able to prescribe them for you. If you want to get your folic acid or vitamin D from a multivitamin tablet, make sure that the tablet does not contain vitamin A (or retinol).

Iron
Pregnancy can deplete a mother’s iron stores. Therefore, it is important to have an appropriate intake of iron to help build and maintain these stores. Low iron levels in early pregnancy have been linked to premature birth and low birth weight.
The average requirement for iron in pregnancy is 22mg/day but some women will need 27mg/day or more. A mixed diet of animal and plant foods can help you achieve your iron intake. Absorption of iron is better from animal foods compared to plant sources, and the recommended dietary intakes are based on a mixed western diet.
Red meat is the best source of iron as well as also being a good source of protein and zinc. Other meats like chicken and fish also contain iron but not as much as red meat. Iron can also be found in leafy green vegetables, legumes and iron-enriched breakfast cereals.
Adding a glass of fruit juice or other foods rich in vitamin C (such as tomato, broccoli or capsicum) to a meal will increase the amount of iron the body absorbs. In contrast, tea, coffee and unprocessed bran can inhibit iron absorption.
Some women may benefit from taking an iron supplement if they are iron deficient, but it is best to take them according to your doctor’s advice as supplementation may cause symptoms like constipation and be harmful in excessive amounts.
If you take Healthy food you can have Iron along with other.  You can eat  as U wish without fear....No side effects....No reactions.

Iodine

Iodine is an essential mineral that we get from the food we eat. The developing baby in the womb, babies and young children are at greatest risk from a diet deficient in iodine. Iodine is needed in very small but essential amounts by the human body. Iodine is essential to the production of thyroid hormone, which regulates body temperature, metabolic rate, reproduction, growth, blood cell production and nerve and muscle function. Thyroid hormone is produced in the thyroid gland, which is in the neck.
Mild to moderate iodine deficiency can result in learning difficulties and affect development of motor skills and hearing.
While seafood is a good source of iodine, the amount of iodine in other food like milk and vegetables, depends on how much iodine is in the soil.
Since all bread, other than organic bread, is not fortified with iodine in Australia, most women who get pregnant should have enough iodine. However, it may not be enough to meet the additional needs of pregnancy and during breastfeeding. The Government recommends pregnant women should take an iodine supplement of 150 micrograms each day. Women with pre-existing thyroid conditions should talk to their doctor before taking a supplement.
