Must-Eat Foods while Pregnant

After reading and posting some of the foods that should be avoided while pregnant, this time here’s some of the foods that I came across the internet that are good for mom to be and the developing baby;

Whole Grains – Do you know that whole-grain breads and cereals have more fiber that white rice and white bread? True! Aside from that whole grains are also fortified with folic acid and iron.  

At this point in time, it’s better to include oatmeal, whole grain bread, or brown rice in you daily diet. 

Beans – Whether they are black beans, white beans, lentils, garbanzo or soy beans, include them in you daily meal too because they are great source protein, fiber, iron folate, calcium and zinc.

Eggs – Eggs contains a lot of vitamins and minerals including choline which is said to be good for baby’s brain development. Aside from that, eggs are very good source of protein and amino acids that you and your baby need.

But please take note that eggs should not be consumed raw or undercooked.

Low-Fat Yogurts – Accordingly, low-fat yogurts contain more calcium than milk, and it is high in protein that your body needed. 

The foods listed above are readily available in the supermarket. There still a lot of foods that pregnant women should eat, so it is better to read and educate ourselves accordingly.

Have a Nice Day Everyone!
