Fenugreek Water for Feeding MomsFenugreek seeds are believed to increase milk production. Traditionally, fenugreek/methi is considered to cool the body temperature and so consumed during menstrual period too.

Also abiding to the tradition, Pregnant ladies are served with this fenugreek water(Vendhaya Kasahayam) once a day in their last trimester and still continued as postnatal drink for milk production.

Fenugreek might cause bloating/gas problem as a side-effect and so it is always clubbed with Jeera water which alleviates these problems and also aids digestion.

Recently, I read that fenugreek water when drunk in empty stomach in the morning will keep the body healthy by reducing cholesterol and preventing diabetes & hypertension.

  • You could skip jaggery while cooking and add honey while drinking.
  • If you could drink without jaggery/honey, better opt for it. As you are not advised to take too much sweet especially in the last trimester as it might cause gestational diabetes and this being a daily drink, you could better avoid sweet.
