Pregnancy can be a scary time when it comes to knowing exactly how you should be looking after yourself and your baby.
There is also so much conflicting information out there, it can be a minefield trying to work out exactly which advice you should take and which advice you should ignore but there are some foods that are proven to give you and your pregnancy a nutritional boost.
Healthy Foods To Eat During Pregnancy:
Eggs are versatile and a good source of protein that presents amino acids you and your baby need. They contain more than a dozen vitamins and minerals, encompassing choline, which is good for baby’s mind development foods. However, be certain not to consume under cooked or raw eggs.
Walnuts are yet another good source of healthy omega-3 fats, which are vitally important for your baby’s brain growth and health. They are also a handy foodstuff as you can eat them on the go without having to worry about cooking or preparing them – so keep a handful of walnuts in your bag to get a hit of omega-3s whilst you’re out and about.
Blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries are delicious snacks and flavor large in pancakes and on top of cereal. Edible seeds are crammed with vitamin C, potassium, folate, and fiber.
Dark Green Vegetables:
Dark green vegetables, such as spinach, are actually my favourite type of vegetables. The bonus is, they are an excellent food to eat during pregnancy as they are chock a block full of vitamins, such as vitamin A, C and K, and they also contain a nutrient known to promote healthy eyes.
Beans are another brilliant source of protein and above all else, they are brilliantly filling and they contain tons of fibre. Beans also contain iron, zinc, folate and calcium, which are all essential nutrients for pregnant mothers.
