Eating yogurt is a great way to get calcium and B12  into your body. B12 is important for healthy red blood cells. Simply adding whole-grain cereal or fresh fruits to your yogurt will make for an even tastier treat. This is a great and tasty treat, especially when you’re pregnant. 


All types of berries and fruit are great to help fill your stomach and enjoy alongside meals. Raspberries, bananas and oranges are delicious sources of fruit that can add a kick to any meal. Packed with vitamin C, folic acid, Vitamin B6 and potassium, these berries give you everything you need to stay healthy during pregnancy. 


Eating eggs as a regular part of your diet can provide you with the daily proteins and amino acids you need while you’re pregant. With more than a dozen different vitamins and minerals, as well as additional vitamins like Choline, eggs are the perfect food source for helping the development of your baby’s brain. The best thing about eggs is their variety of preparation and serving options. You can hard boil them, create omelettes and a number of other great meals. 


Start eating some salmon in order to get all the Omega-3 fatty acids you need to give your baby the best eyes and a more developed brain. Salmon provides a good amount of protein and B vitamins, and is low in mercury in comparison to other fish.
