Detailed Answer:

Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
Unsaturated fats are considered healthier and should form a major portion of your fat intake. Unsaturated fats are found in:

vegetable or plant oils such as sesame (til), sunflower (suraj mukhi), soya, olive (zetoon), canola ( safed sarson ) and corn ( makai)
nuts
seeds

Diet rich in vanaspati during pregnancy could result in a low birth weight baby. It is also said to increase the risk of diseases such as diabetes and breast cancer.
It is not to be use.


I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
