Ensuring that you have a healthy diet that provides all of the nutrients that you need is always important for one’s health, but even more so when for a woman who is pregnant. She is the sole source of nutrition for her growing baby. The very best thing that she can do for her future child throughout her pregnancy is to ensure that she is eating healthy snacks and meals that include foods that are full of essential vitamins and nutrients.

According to the American Pregnancy Association, healthy eating is absolutely necessary and critical to a baby’s growth throughout pregnancy. It is important that any mama-to-be reﬁne her eating habits to ensure that she is receiving adequate nutrition for not only the health of her growing baby, but for her health as well. This means eating from a variety of food groups including fruits and veggies, breads and grains, proteins, and dairy products and drinking at least 10 cups of ﬂuids a day.
Luckily for you, many of the nutrients essential to a baby’s development are easy to ﬁnd in some of your favorite fruits, vegetables, and leafy greens!
