milk powder during pregnancy

Hi all mummies, is it compulsory to drink milk powder / soy milk powder / maternal milk powder during pregnancy? I'm currently week 19 + day 4. Need advise on this, thanks a bunch!

Not compulsory:) but calcium is really important, so ensure that you take enough in your diet, and supplement if needed. A well balanced diet is also needed so you get all the other vitamins and minerals you need

Not compulsory. If you’re alr taking multivitamins and folic acid, milk powder might be overkill as it contains nutrients present in those pills too. Can ask your gyne tho.

I started with that...but eventually got lazy..cuz we r taking supplements already like multi vitamins n calcium n fish oil pills... i juz drink meiji low fat milk...
