In your pregnancy, your diet takes a big role in building your baby’s health & keeping you healthy till the due date. These 5 superfoods are important to include in your diet, throughout your pregnancy because they are things your body needs during this intense period.
Berries are super high in antioxidants and provide Vitamin C. These foods will help you to clean any toxins out of your body after giving birth, allowing your body to recover properly.
- Green leafy veg and broccoli
Kale, spinach & broccoli are all important superfoods to include in your pregnancy diet. Kale is a great source of fibre, calcium, Vitamin A, C, and K. Spinach is loaded with folate which is best for you & baby. Broccoli is also a great source of folate, fibre, calcium, and potassium.
- Dairy products
Milk, yoghurt, cheese, and protein powder are great sources of calcium. You should aim for 3-4 servings of dairy a day to get your required calcium consumption.
Chickpeas are super high in Zinc, which is a necessary nutrient to help your body heal, repair cells, and build collagen. Chickpeas can be made into a range of hot and cold dishes such as curries and hummus!
Oatmeal is an excellent source of fibre and is an essential food after giving birth. Pain medications, trauma, stress, IVs, and all sorts of other things can stop your body from functioning properly. The fibre in oatmeal will support your body to push waste through, without producing too much gas or bloating.
Besides all the other healthy foods you are eating, keep these foods as must-have in your pregnancy diet.
