Healthy snacks during pregnancy.

I wasn't sure where to post this, but here goes...

I need some help with this pretty bad. My last pregnancy, I gained 55 lbs! I honestly felt naucious whenever I wasn't eating, so I kept going. lol.
And I'm already feeling the same way now (few weeks along).
Can you gals throw some healthy snack ideas my way. I like veggies, really I do, but for some reason, I can't stomach them too easily while preggers. I tried some of the Just veggies this weekend and And just two weeks ago they were fabulous

What can I munch on that is apetising, satisfying, nutricious, and inexpensive for the next few months??

Re: Healthy snacks during pregnancy.

I ate a lot of air popped popcorn while I was pregnant....and I mean a lot...
On the not too healthy side I really enjoyed pickles, ice cream and french fries...probably too much. I am back to my prebaby weight. It must have been the popcorn LOL. ( I couldn't really do veggies either)
Oh, and I ate a lot of blueberries and strawberries too.

Re: Healthy snacks during pregnancy.

Well I know that watermelon and cucumbers are supposed to be good to keep swelling down. So those are good ideas, I know this time of year it is hard to find watermellon though. For a sweet and salty snack try eating some dried fruit and almonds, very good for you. Or how about yogurt w/ granola or other cereal mixed in (I like Honey bunches of Oats w/ yogurt). I usually try to eat a snack size, like out of a kids size bowl instead of a reg bowl. Hope you find some healthy alternative to keep the pound away.

Re: Healthy snacks during pregnancy.

When I was pregnant I craved really juicy fruit like watermelon and grapes but even pears and apples were great. My one thing I ate every day that was healthy and satisfying was an apple cut into wedges which I dipped in peanut butter. Yum! I also really liked yogurt.

Just be careful not to cut fat too much. You need the fats for baby's brain development.

Re: Healthy snacks during pregnancy.

What saved me were the power bars from Kashi Go lean or Luna, and some others but I forget the name. They are packed with protein. I even just needed only 1/2 a bar sometimes--and the other times I could have ahd three! Anfd the bonus is that they come in so many different flavors. I work in a school part time and they really helped me get through the day. it was an ongoing joke about me wandering from classroom to classroom looking for snacks, I was pathetic.

And then I was a lunatic for raisin bran. really, truly, it was odd. I got the total raisin bran. Can you handle milk?

And of course, bananas are so low in acidity that they were easy to handle, too.

1/2 a bagel with some cream cheese did the trick sometimes.

Oh yeah, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (whole fuit jelly and natural peanut butter on super awesome whoel grain bread, not flimsy white stuff.....toasted...perfecto! That is what I ate every morning.


Hmmm, sounds like I really jsut ate my way through nine months, and they are very very fond memories!

If I think of some more old friends I will post again! good luck!

Re: Healthy snacks during pregnancy.

Some ideas for quick/easy snacks that aren't too bad for you:

*fruit cups in natural juices
*applesauce
*nuts
*peanut butter (or other nut butter) on whole grain bread
*fruit leather (the real kind, not fruit roll-ups)
*organic yogurt (I usually get vanilla and mix in my own fruit or granola)
*granola/granola bars
*mozzarella or cheddar cheese sticks/bars
*cottage cheese

These are, of course, in addition to the obvious (fruits and veggies).
