Eat Healthy During Pregnancy For You And Your Baby - Articles Surfing
One of the best things you can do for yourself and your baby is to eat healthy during pregnancy. The food you eat is your baby's only source of nutrition.
Your body's main source of energy comes from the essential carbohydrates in grains. You should choose at least nine servings of grains per day. Review the following list of grain servings:
' 1 cup cold cereal
Foods enriched with whole grains provide you with fiber, iron, B vitamins, various minerals and protein.
' Trading sugary cereal and white bread for whole-grain cereals
You should choose three or more servings of fruit and four or more servings of vegetables per day.
' 1 medium-sized piece of fruit
If you are tired of canned and fresh fruit, try dried fruits. There are several different fruits available such as apricots, cherries, strawberries, blueberries. Blueberries and strawberries are packed with antioxidants. I just love the dry pineapples!
A serving includes:
' 3 ounces of cooked lean meat, poultry or fish
And don't forget the dairy products that helps build your baby's bones and teeth as well as keeps your bones and teeth healthy. Calcium-fortified soy milk is a good choice during pregnancy. Choose three or more servings a day. Servings include:
' 1 cup skim milk
Indulge in fats, oils and sweets only once in a while during pregnancy. Keep an eye on portion size.
