Not only does your blood sugar have a tendency to dip and soar during pregnancy, leaving you feeling tired and lethargic, but your body needs regular refueling to keep up with the demands placed upon it. Treat your snacks as “mini meals”: they should be balanced and contain plenty of essential nutrients, with no empty calories.

Great snack ideas include:

  • Nuts or seeds

  • Plain live yogurt with fresh fruit

  • Fresh fruit and vegetables with dips

  • Toast with nut butters or high-fruit spreads

  • Fruit smoothies

  • Vegetable soup

  • Dried fruit

  • Good-quality, low-sugar granola bars

  • Cheese sticks

  • Small sandwiches with plenty of salad

  • Pasta or couscous salads, with lots of veggies

  • Whole-grain, unsweetened breakfast cereal

  • Hard-boiled eggs

Bedtime snacks

Have a snack before bed to help you sleep and to ensure you don’t wake up with hunger pains. Go for turkey, eggs, and dairy produce, all great sources of the amino acid tryptophan, which encourages restful sleep.
