Tips for a Healthy Pregnancy Breakfast

When you're pregnant, you (and your baby) need a lot of vitamins and good quality food.

You want to choose foods with good sources of VITAMIN B and FIBER such as whole grains, multigrain bread, and oatmeal.

Also aim for foods with good sources of IRON (raisins and apricots) and CALCIUM (yogurt, milk, cheese, cottage cheese, and almonds).

A healthy breakfast contains a good balance of complex carbohydrates, fiber (oats, whole grain cereal), protein (yogurt, cheese, eggs), and of course, fresh fruit or vegetables (for those of you who like a more Mediterranean-style breakfast!).

By eating a good quality breakfast, you can avoid a mid-morning or lunchtime mood crash and low energy. Mood crashes/energy lows generally lead to overeating or poor food choices. Overeating or poor food choices - well, you know where it goes from there, unnecessary weight gain.

To the best of your ability - take time to eat well in the morning even though you're rushed, you owe it to yourself and your baby!
