5 Super Foods That Every Pregnant Woman Must Have

Pregnancy can be a really challenging time, you can go from wanting to eat a truckload of junk to totally hating the sight of it. Don’t worry it's normal and almost everyone goes through it.

That being said, you must take care of your body well and eat food that is rich in nutritional value. Below we give you a list of 5 superfoods that will totally help you rock your pregnancy:

1. Avocado

Fruits are full of all kinds of healthy nutrients (for mom and baby); we especially like avocados because they contain healthy omega-3 fats, which are good for helping the development of your baby’s brain. Like guacamole? No problem, just easy on the chips.

 

2. Chia Seeds

This grain contains fibre and omega-3 fats, which have been shown to help ward off pregnancy depression. The seeds also help inhibit the speed in which sugar is absorbed, to help your baby grow with a fewer chance of swings in blood sugar. Mix them in yogurt or sprinkle on salads/milkshake.

 

3. Coconut Water

Coconut water during pregnancy is one of the best sources of nutrients as it is a mixture of chlorides, electrolytes, Riboflavin, Calcium, Magnesium and Vitamin C. It also helps increase the baby weight and is tasty as well. Don't forget to scoop out the 'malai' from the skin of the coconut.

4. Prunes

Loaded with the goodness of fibre, Prunes keep your digestive system running smoothly. A diet rich in fibre decreases the risk of developing Preeclampsia. Prunes are iron-rich and thus, prevents Anemia also. It is one of the healthiest foods on the planet.

5. Spinach

Popeye loves spinach, so should you. Loaded with vitamin A, C, K, B6, B2, folate and magnesium, spinach helps protect against neural-tube defects. It helps in the ling development of the foetus also!

So, Mamas go ahead and try these yummy options for a healthy pregnancy! Happy eating!
