Nutritious Snacks For Pregnancy

Snacks make up a very important part of a pregnancy diet. It is common for pregnant women to feel hungry but just can’t seem to eat three large meals like they used to. This is usually due to the baby taking up stomach space as well as nausea.


Snacks during pregnancy are also beneficial for:

  • Balancing blood sugars and keeping up your energy levels throughout the day.

  • Keeping morning sickness at bay, as often feeling too full or too hungry can be a trigger for nausea

  • Managing heartburn or acid reflux


It is important to make sure that your snacks are nutritious, especially if they are replacement for main meals.


Here is a list of my favourite, nourishing pregnancy snacks:

  • Sourdough toast with avocado and sliced tomato

  • Greek yoghurt with berries and some nuts and seeds

  • Cheese on wholegrain crackers

  • Miso soup

  • Seaweed snacks with avocado

  • Trail mix

  • ½ avocado with lemon juice and sea salt

  • Hard boiled eggs

  • Celery sticks with peanut butter or almond butter

  • Apple with almond butter

  • Celery, carrot and capsicum sticks with hummus

  • Smoothies e.g Simple Green Smoothie

  • Protein or energy balls

  • Overnight oats

  • Poached apples or pears with cinnamon and Greek yoghurt

  • Roasted sweet potato wedges with sour cream
