    We all know that eating fruits and veggies is good for us. But did you know that this is especially true when pregnant? This is because fruits are full of good fiber and nutrients that are essential for both mom and growing baby. Some of the nutrients that we see in fruits include vitamin C, which will help your baby’s bones, teeth, and collagen in the connective tissue to grow; beta carotene, for strong immune systems, and tissue and cell growth; folic acid to help with healthy birth weight and prevention of tube defects; and potassium to control blood pressure. The fiber in fruit is also good for mom to help keep her bowels going properly; hemorrhoids and constipation are common during pregnancy. So how much should you eat? It is recommended that an expectant mom eat about two cups of fruit a day, and 2 ½-3 cups of veggies a day. It is important to eat plenty of leafy greens, as well as a variety of colored foods (orange, purple, yellow, red.) The best fruits and veggies to eat are fresh. Here are just a few good fruits that mom should eat during pregnancy: kiwi, grapes, pears, berries, melon, apricots, papaya, and mango. Adding these to your diet is easy. One can leave a bowl of fresh fruits on the counter for easy grabbing; put fruits into a smoothie; add some fresh fruit to breakfast; or eat them with a good, low-fat dressing. You can even add a protein to your fruit, such as cottage cheese, which will give you strong, sustained energy for the whole day. So if you are expecting soon, make sure to eat plenty of fruits and veggies to keep not only you healthy, but to help baby get a healthy start as well.
