Brief Answer:
friits, milk, protein powder and folic acid

Detailed Answer:
Hello sir thanks for trusting health care magic.
In early pregnancy body needs preparation for nurturing the baby.
She should
- take green leafy vegetables at least once a day
- include salads in all meals
- nuts especially walnut and almonds are very good for baby
- drink plenty of water to avoid urine infections which are very common in pregnancy.
- milk at least twice a day
- fruits like apple, pear, plum and kiwi are very good.
In supplements she needs to add protein powder 1 table spoon in one glass of milk twice a day.
Folic acid tablet daily is very important.
Along with this she should take adequate rest of 8 hours at night and if possible 2 hours in day.
Wish her all the best.
