Week 13 day 1: important to force feed nutritious food?

my appetite has improved but still cannot eat a lot at a time. So overall intake of food still lower than normal, not yet gaining back to my original weight. I still have certain hormone induced food cravings that are not so healthy (i love sweet & sour taste food), and I’m supposed to eat more vege and nutritious stuff already but I feel averse to most vege except like corn; to due to hormones…I usually love vegetables . I’m worried baby not getting balanced nutrients from my diet as I’m entering 2nd trimester. Is it impt therefore to force myself to eat food I feel averse to if they are good for me? Or will I get better gradually and no need to worry? TIA.

It’s hard to eat something that the body is averse to. I think it’ll improve in the second trimester when morning sickness eases. In the mean time, are you taking some supplements? Or try a green smoothie, you can add some fruit to give it sweet and sour taste that you like. That may help.

Thank you, yes I’m on pre natal multi vits. I guess that would be a helpful substitute for now.
