Benefits in Brief

  • Avocado is a 'brain booster' during pregnancy and after pregnancy due to the healthy fats and a wide range of vitamins it contains to help improve concentration, memory and mood. Plus fibre for a healthy digestive system and to balance blood sugar levels to ward off cravings.
  • Spinach to help improve energy levels and beat anemia.
  • Bananas contain nutrients and fibre to help moderate blood sugar levels after meals. They also provide potassium to help relieve muscular cramps which help during pregnancy. Eating more fibre from fruit and vegetables has repeatedly been linked with lower body weight and weight loss.
