Pregnancy Diet Tips

3   people commented

The phrase "eating for two" when you're pregnant doesn't mean piling twice as much food onto your plate. Instead, the idea is to eat twice as well. Getting the most nutrition you can out of every bite you take is smart when you’re having a baby. But what exactly are the best foods to chow down on when you’re expecting? Read on to find out.

Pregnancy diet tip number 1: The miraculous oval.
Yup, we’re talking about eggs, which are packed with protein and contain vitamins D and B12. These nutritional powerhouses are super easy to prepare and make a very fast meal. Try them scrambled, with cheese in a sandwich, or on top of lightly fried rice in your pregnancy diet.

Pregnancy diet tip number 2: Dairy delights.
Calcium is a must for your developing baby’s bones. Low-fat milk, cheese, and yogurt are delicious ways to obtain this important mineral. Try to drink milk a couple of times a day, and include a serving of yogurt or cheese daily. Just be sure any cheese you consume during pregnancy is made from pasteurized milk.

Pregnancy diet tip number 3: Nuts for nuts.
Portable and non-perishable, nuts and nut butters are perfect on-the-go snacks and excellent sources of protein and healthy fat, which can aid in your baby’s development. Almonds, peanuts, and walnuts are all good picks, as are the butters made from these nuts.
