PREGNANCY SUPERFOOD

Being pregnant ain’t easy. You are basically carrying another tiny life (lives) inside your tummy! *a round of applause to all the mothers out there* Thus, during pregnancy, mothers have to be extra cautiousenlightened about what they eat or drink as it will indirectly affect their little one as well.

 

Hence, here are some pregnancy superfoods which are good for both the mum and the baby.

 


 

Dark, leafy greens

Dark, leafy greens such as kale, broccoli and spinach are full of fiber and nutrients that a pregnant woman needs. Due to its high fiber content, it helps to prevent constipation which pregnant women usually face.

 

Dairy Products

Dairy products, especially yogurt, are a great choice for pregnant women. They help you meet increased protein and calcium needs. Probiotics may also help reduce the risk of complications in babies when they grow up in the future such as allergies or eczema.

Oats

Just a bowl of oats in the morning will provide more than 30% of your daily dose of magnesium, which the mother’s body need to build the infant’s strong teeth and bones.
