Healthy snacks include fruits and vegetables (e.g. salads, carrots), nuts, dates, yoghurt, and cereals with milk.
Most pregnant women take smaller but more frequent meals. If you need a small snacks in between main meals, here are some healthy ideas: -Corn-on-the-cob: Brush olive oil over steamed corn. -Cereal ‘n’ milk: Have whole-grain cereal or oats with low-fat milk. Top with some sliced fruit. -Homemade strawberry milkshake: Blend ½ cup of low-fat yoghurt, ¼ glass of low-fat milk and ¹/³ cup of strawberries, bananas or any fruit of choice for a delicious smoothie. -Fruit kebabs: Thread some cubes of apples or grapes onto satay sticks and serve with a small tub of low-fat yoghurt. -Sandwiches: Toast wholemeal bread and include different fillings (e.g. baked beans,low-fat cheese, an omelette or cooked sardines/tuna). -Handful of nuts: Have a handful of mixed nuts for a quick snack or mix some ready-to-eat cereal, dried fruit and nuts in a sandwich bag for a snack on-the-go. -Home-made yoghurt dips: with carrot sticks and celery. -Popiah, steamed dim sums, Vietnamese rice paper spring rolls and savory mungbean cake (ang ku kueh).
U may try keeping some yoghurt bar (eg Quaker / Uncle Toby) in ur bag. I also eat Sunsweet prune when I was pregnant cos it aid the bowel system. Besides that, u may try snacking organic dried fruits.
Lots of fruits, cereals, yogurt. Cut down on sugary, high fat snacks such as fizzy drinks, chocolates, ice cream etc. Empty calories, and you will put on more weight.
mixed nuts, fruits and yogurt! sometimes i go for mini pao as well!
Sandwiches, fruits, whole grain cereals (for fibre), low fat milk, smoothie. I particularly love smoothie becos it is great tasting and its very healthy! It also tends to make me feel full so that I have lesser cravings. Yogurt is also good, and i love non-fat frozen cold yogurt!
For me, i treat strawberry as my snack. And also choc. :) just eat what you crave for and eat in moderation. :)
walnuts are brain food and good for baby! i eat them as snack and also add them in my salads for that extra crunch! =)
Yogurt with almond or walnut is healthy. I sometimes top it with banana ans berries.
I took lots of high calcium milk (the normal calcium pills gave me constipation, so i skipped that), yogurts, pasturised cheese. Food high in good fats such as Avocado are suitable as well...
