Last Updated : Dec 20,2017
Over the years snacks have developed a “bad image”, but they can actually be an important part of a meal, especially for a pregnant women. They provide you the needed energy and protein in the middle of the day which keeps you going on till dinner. You just need to avoid to reach out to the bag of chips or any other deep fried snack. Make your choice wisely and you are all set to gain in some nutrients than just the fat.
Cabbage Parathas, Hare Chane ki Chaat, Mini Jowar, Apple and Walnut Pancake, Moong Dal and Paneer Chila and many more such delicious snack treats find place in this section. Enjoy them in the evening when you are at home. If your travelling or are at work, make some dry snack during the weekends so you are set for the week. Oats Methi Multiflour Khakhra, Baked Oats Puri, Golpapdi, Healthy Methi Crispies are some recipe ideas to turn to then. Just ensure that size of the snack should be of the right size –a good balance between enough calories to satisfy you, but still not too many.
However at times, if time doesn’t permit to cook any of these snacks, occasionally opt for fruits like apple, pear, strawberries, orange, guava or grapefruit as they have natural sugar, fiber and some amount of water content too. Remember fruits are always a healthier option than readymade fruit juices.
So plan your snacks well ahead in time and get set for a healthy indulgence throughout your pregnancy.
