While it is good for an expectant mother to eat well and avoid certain foods, there is no sacred list of food for pregnant women. The concept, which to some degree did exist in times passed, is, indeed in the past. You don’t have to expect 9 months of jellies, rich puddings or bland ingredients. Thank goodness!

What You do Need At any point during your life you need to get a well balanced, highly nutritious diet. It is accurate to say that during your pregnancy a bit more caution is in order – but only in so far as you use that caution to pick the very best possible food for pregnant women. After all, you are feeding not just yourself, but also a little guest.

The need for a bit more calories is understandable, especially if you already walk a fine line nutritionally. You need more calcium, iron, folate and protein; primarily. These are the building blocks that your body will sacrifice most readily to supply the baby.

Women who have several babies in sequence frequently suffer from anemia, depleted bones and decreased muscle mass since their body may not have recovered from a previous pregnancy before another one comes along.

To get those calories and nutrients, focus on foods rich in those ingredients. Dark leafy greens provide folate, calcium and iron. Protein comes in grass fed meats, organic whole eggs and plenty of wild fish. It isn’t hard, in fact, barring morning sickness, most pregnant women are more than willing to eat that bit more – it is overeating that is more of an issue.

Making it Easy A great way to simplify your life when you are pregnant is to anticipate your needs. When you, or your partner, go shopping, get some items that are easy to use to make great meals.

For example, get an extra dozen organic eggs and hard boil them immediately. Wash and dry salad greens and store them for use. Purchase several wild salmon fillets or chicken breasts and cook them up. Slice them if you like, and put them in the fridge. Stock up on several types of raw nuts or nut butters as well as fruits you like that can be eaten in hand.

This way, when you are hungry but tired, you only need a few moments to put together a healthy meal that will satisfy your nutritional requirements. In fact, if you are the prepared kind of person, precooking several meals and sticking them in the freezer is a great way to have sit-down dinners no matter how tired you might be come evening. Just let your partner heat them up while you take a nap.

Dealing with Cravings and Morning Sickness Most women experience a bit of each of these common pregnancy complaints. Cravings can be satisfied, within reason, as long as they don’t involve eating things that aren’t actually food – such as clay, dirt, ice or aluminum foil. Have a little bit of something that you are craving strongly and look at your diet again to make sure you are eating in a well balanced fashion.

Morning sickness is typically only an uncomfortable nuisance – if it gets to be more, talk to your doctor. Small meals, especially dry, simple foods, help to settle your stomach. Brown rice crackers, a bit of ginger tea and sour apples can calm your nausea down during the worst hours. Make up for lost nutrition later on as possible.

The truth is that barring those few foods that are known to be risky, any nutritious food is good food for pregnant women. If you didn’t eat a well balanced diet before your pregnancy, there is no time like the present to change your ways. Your reward will be a happy and healthy little one to love at the end of the road.
