Eating healthy while pregnant is not about weight alone, we can always lose the weight postpartum but what of our health and child’s health? (I have been called selfish and being obsessed with how i look that i am starving during pregnancy but I forgive their ignorance because i know my WHY). This are my own superfood list, they are rich in calcium, potassium, magnesium, folic acid, omega 3 fatty acid, vitamin E, A & C, zinc ( this can help prevent preeclampsia, preterm labour, gestational diabetes, postpartum depression, anaemia, eczema on baby’s skin, water retention. Also help baby’s brain development). Your intake doesn’t need to double, swipe left.

When i go for antenatal, i notice a lot of women eating anyhow because they are pregnant, i try to mind my business and not talk to them but last time I overheard the nurse talking to a lady about her bp at 20 weeks and possible bed rest then she came out and bought moi moi then meatpie and coke followed. I had to sit beside her and talk to her (thank God i was not insulted) but i had too because i wish someone talked to me with my first baby...since then i have been thinking of this post and decided to share this morning. Please feel free to ask questions, add a food to the list that and tag your preggy friends
