"Should I eat this?"
"CAN I eat this?"
"Will this food be good for my pregnancy?"

We know your diet can be a tricky subject even when you're not pregnant, far less for when you're worried about what will also be good for baby. To help you on your way, we've put together this list of foods that are easily sourced and are great both for you and your pregnancy!

  1. Beans and Lentils

Both beans and lentils are a great source of protein, iron, zinc calcium and folate. These are all good mom friendly minerals which are good for you and baby. The zinc in beans can lead to lower risk for preterm delivery, low birth weight and prolonged labor.

  1. Eggs

No matter your style, eggs are an excellent source of prenatal protein. They are also rich in choline, iron and folate. Choline is super important to pregnant Moms as it critical to fetal brain development and reduces the risk of neural tube defects, such as spina bifida. The choline in eggs is in the yolk, so no egg whites only on your plate!

  1. Orange Juice

Get your vitamin C fill with a tall glass of orange juice. Drinking orange juice also gives you your needed potassium and folate. Folate is necessary to help prevent birth defects and a healthy pregnancy. Pregnant women need more potassium for keeping muscle function and metabolism in line. And of course, Vitamin C helps you to be better able to fight colds and helps your body absorb iron better.

Plain yogurt is packed rich with calcium. Plain yogurt actually has more calcium than milk. Calcium is needed to keep your bones and teeth healthy and aid in the development of babys’. Getting sufficient calcium is important to reduce the risk of low birth weight and preterm delivery

  1. Oatmeal

Those morning oats contain fiber, protein and B6. They also help with preventing constipation, provide needed energy and aids in your baby’s overall development.
