Fruits! The most delicious treat given by the humble tree or plant! I’ve never met a single person who does not like fruits. Fruits are an amazing and sweet source of nutrition. As a pregnant woman, you are most certainly worried about your diet and nutrition (trust me, I completely understand you). Are you one of those who ask constant questions to the ultrasound baby scan clinic’s USG technician related to your baby’s health? Well, first of all, you’re going to the right way and second, if you want some extra nourishment, add fruits to your diet as they are packed with vitamins, minerals, and fibre.
So, munch on these superfruits during pregnancy.
Mangoes provide energy, antioxidants and vital nutrients to the body. They are good for you during pregnancy as they help in preventing anaemia and preeclampsia. Folic acid in mangoes aids fetal development. Also, eating mangoes will ease your morning sickness. Bonus points, they are juicy and a healthy way to take care of your sweet tooth.
A pomegranate has vitamin K, iron, fibre, calcium, and folate. It is also believed that drinking pomegranate juice will help prevent preeclampsia and preterm birth in babies. Pomegranates also fight free radicals and protect that baby from any brain damage.
Let’s go bananas over bananas because they contain fibre, potassium, folic acid, vitamin B-6 and other essential nutrients. If you suffer from constipation during pregnancy, then bananas will come to your rescue. Bananas are perfect for improving mood, boosting energy, and treating morning sickness.
An apple a day truly keeps the doctor away! Apples have B complex vitamins, Vitamin C, potassium, calcium, iron, fibre and phosphorus. They help in building immunity, boosting memory, and preventing respiratory issues.
Avocados are full of healthy fats required during pregnancy for baby’s proper nourishment and help in preventing neural tube defects. You should consume avocados as they are rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, potassium, calcium, vitamin A and C.
