Healthy snacks for pregnant women

January 242012

As I’m in my second trimester healthy snacks are becoming more and more important in my and my baby’s life. I try to eat healthy anyway, I really like fruits and vegetables and now I try to stick to healthy snacks too. My favorite site – babble.com – collected the 10 healthy snacks during pregnancy. They are healthy, filling and good for the mom and for the baby too.

Katie writes that multigrain crackers are her favorite snacks:

It’s quick, easy, portable and depending upon the types of cheese and crackers you buy, it’ll get you some healthy carbs, lots of fiber and help you with protein and calcium. Plus, it’s just plain delicious.

or if you like something sweet during pregnancy you can try fruit smoothies – I really love them too:

I have to confess, I was never a smoothie person before pregnancy. But my love of fruit has gotten even greater with this baby. My normal smoothies are made of orange juice, greek yogurt and frozen fruit. My favorite combination is OJ, yogurt, frozen mango and a few frozen strawberries. Warning, if you add too many frozen berries, you’re going to have a seed overload. Play around with fruits, juices and yogurts you like, you won’t be sorry.

Sometimes I go for fresh fruit such as banana. They are really delicious too.
