Healthy Snacking During Pregnancy

Healthy Snacking During Pregnancy

Whether you have initiated your parenthood journey naturally or with the help of an assisted reproductive technique, there is something that pregnant women can never fight, their hunger pangs. As you conceive, your body undergoes a lot of changes, and so do your eating habits. You either don’t feel like eating anything or eat all the time. For most women, there is no in-between. As such, it is important to have delicious, yet healthy snacks, available at your hand, all the time. Here is a list of some scrumptious snacks with amazing health benefits, recommended by the expose from the best IVF centre in Noida.

Apples and crackers with peanut butter – This is one of the best combinations, loaded with all the essential nutrients like proteins, fibres and healthy fats. The top IVF doctors in Ghaziabad suggest that these nutrients not only benefit the expecting mother, but also the baby growing inside. Simply slice your apples and spread peanut butter over each one of them. If you are not a big fan of apples, you can simply replace them with whole-grain crackers, or different fruits like bananas and pears. 

Fruit and nut yoghurt – Ice cream is one of the favourite foods of most women, but when you are pregnant, you need to find a healthier alternative. Well, don’t let your thoughts wander too far as we have found one for – Fruit & nut yoghurt. Just chop some berries and your favourite fruits and mix them in a bowl of yoghurt. You can even add nuts, provided you are not allergic to them.  The option is so healthy that you can take up to three servings in a day, however, make sure you are using low-fat yoghurt. You can also try using flavoured yoghurt. This not only pleases your taste buds but also acts as a healthy source of calcium and proteins. 

Chocolate – If you think that chocolates are not good for you and your baby, we are here with some good news. Eating chocolate during pregnancy can help you in ways you will have never imagined. It can help to alleviate the risks of preeclampsia, which is marked by an increase in blood pressure, which is a threat for both, the mother and the baby. There are a variety of different ways in which you can add chocolates to your diet. You can either have it as it is or add it to pudding or fruit salads 

Smoothies – With yoghurt or milk as a base, smoothies automatically become a healthy source of nutrients and fruits and berries add to their nutritional value. You can even try adding a little spinach or celery to use smoothies, and you don’t even feel their presence. This will help to add more vitamins and fibre to your glass of smoothie. You can always play with the flavours by trying different fruits. 

Cheese and Nuts – Love eating cheese? Well here is one more reason to love it. Hard cheese like Parmesan, Cheddar and Gouda. You should, however, avoid eating soft cheese, as it may contain listeria, a harmful bacteria. A combination of nut and hard cheese is enough to supply you with all the calcium that you need. If you wish to experiment a little, try adding a whole grain cracker to the combo.
