Pregnancy is a beautiful phase for every women . During this phase, mothers probably get advice from everyone , doctors, family members, friends, colleagues and so on about all the do’s and dont’s, what to eat and what not to eat. But staying healthy during pregnancy depends on mothers themselves, so its crucial to get information about the many ways to keep the baby and herself as healthy as possible.
HEALTHY SWAPS DURING PREGNANCY
Nutrition plays an important role in the health of both mom and baby. Of course, there is always room for an occasional treat, but what matters most for those expecting is that the majority of times the food choices are giving a daily dose of key nutrients that will set the stage for a healthy new life.
As to be mothers would keep asking what nutritious foods to include during these 9 months, one common thing that sets in unknowingly are “Cravings”. These cravings generally include those of “Junk foods”. All you want to do is go grab a packet of chips or a chocolate bar without realizing the extra calories that are piled on. You have to make sure to fight these little cravings, choose foods wisely and remember “Your Not eating for Two”, which means you have to eat in proper proportions.
NUTRITION DURING PREGNANCY!
One doesn’t need to go on a special diet during pregnancy, but all you need to do is eat a range of different foods and make sure you follow a healthy, balanced diet of fruit and vegetables, protein-rich foods, dairy foods and unrefined carbohydrates, such as whole grains, which will provide all the nutrients your baby needs.
HOW TO SWAP SMARTLY?
Sugar, salt and fat are often hidden in many of the foods we eat, especially foods that come from a box, from a packet , takeaways, etc. These ready to eat binge foods include cakes, crisps, biscuits, candies , aerated beverages, ready to eat cereals and much more. These foods are more likely to make you put on extra weight and prevent you being hungry from all the nutritious foods you need. While you should not go hungry during your pregnancy, it is also important to make sure you avoid or restrict the consumption of junkies and instead try some of these food swaps for a healthier pregnancy.
