We all know how important it is for a good pregnancy and the health of your future unborn child to eat a healthy, balanced diet and exercise during gestation.
There are, in addition to these basic expedients, super foods that it is important, not to say essential, to consume during pregnancy. So, let’s look at them together.
6 super foods to absolutely consume during pregnancy
Oats are a fiber-rich whole grain cereal that can also be consumed by mothers with celiac disease. It does not naturally contain gluten but causes allergies to some individuals. It is an excellent source of energy and is rich in magnesium, protein, phosphorus and especially vitamin B1.
You can use it for making cakes rather than pancakes for breakfast. You can also find oatmeal commercially that you can eat with milk or yogurt.
This vegetable, loved and hated for its earthy taste, is important because in addition to being rich in iron, it is also rich in calcium and vitamin D. The latter two elements are extremely important for the development of the child’s bones.
Finally, they are rich in folic acid, which is essential for avoiding congenital malformations.
You can prepare them hot but also add them, raw, in salads.
Eggs are a valuable food that should be consumed, frequently because they contain more than 12 vitamins and minerals as well as being a large source of protein. The latter are important because the cells that make up the baby’s body are precisely made up of protein as well as the placenta, uterus and even the breasts.
Lean meat :
Iron is one of the fundamental elements for ensuring a good pregnancy, an element that is unfortunately often in short supply in pregnant women. Consume lean meat such as fat-free beef to fill up on iron, protein, and vitamin B, which are essential to avoid the risk of premature birth. Remember to avoid sausages unless you consume them cooked to avoid contracting bacteria and parasites.
Important for enhancing the celebrating development of the fetus, liver is a food that not all women like but should be consumed during pregnancy. Try to add it to stir-fries but do not eat it in pates or similar because they contain many preservatives.
Vegetable rich in vitamin A and C is important for strengthening the immune system. They can be prepared in many ways, roasted rather than pan-fried or be used, chopped, as pasta toppings.
