5 healthy snack ideas

 

Here are five of our favorite pregnancy-safe, healthy snacks!

1)     Whole Wheat Bagel w/ Cream Cheese and Fruit

Bagel w/ Fruit

Whole grain bagels have more fiber and essential minerals that white bagels are stripped of in the refining process. The antioxidants in fruit like strawberries and blueberries will give you a sweet energy boost without the crash later.

Want yummy, fresh cream cheese without the preservatives? Try this recipe to make your own!

2)     Cottage Cheese w/ Fruit

Cottage cheese is packed with vitamin B-12 and protein (which is an essential building block for your body to create new cells) while fruits like kiwi and pineapple are chock-full of vitamin C to help give your immune system a boost.

3)     Greek Yogurt with Toasted Almonds and Cinnamon

Greek yogurt provides a generous amount of protein and calcium along with live cultures that promote a healthier immune system. Toasted almonds offer a helping of fiber with cinnamon for flavor.

You can buy almonds already toasted or make your own!

4)     Apples and Peanut Butter
