Why is this good for you and your baby?

Organic, plain Greek yogurt is a good source of protein, calcium, phosphorus, riboflavin, and vitamin B12.  It is also a good source of pantothenic acid, biotin, selenium, zinc, and potassium. The best part is that it is loaded with health promoting probiotic bacteria.  Probiotics have been found to be helpful with:

  • Antibiotic-induced diarrhea
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Vaginal yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis
  • Eczema
  • Cancer
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Traveler’s diarrhea
  • Lactose intolerance

Yogurt promotes pre-natal health because of the bone and muscle building nutrients as well as helping you have a healthy bacterial flora. Which is super important for you and your baby.

Organic strawberries- They are nutrient rich and an antioxidant powerhouse. Loaded with Vitamin C. They protect against inflammation, cancer, and heart disease. Strawberries boost your immunity, promote eye health and may improve short term memory. They promote pre-natal health because they contain 21 mcg. of folate per serving and all that vitamin C will help build your baby head to toe. 

Honey- Is a source of riboflavin and vitamin B6 as well as iron and manganese. Studies show honey has an antioxidant effect. Honey still acts as a sugar in the body so just use a little.  

Bob's Red Mill Old Country Muesli-  Is made with whole grains providing valuable energy-rich carbohydrates, B-complex vitamins, iron and cholesterol-fighting soluble fiber. Dried fruits are rich in antioxidants, vitamin A and immune-boosting vitamin C. Nuts and seeds provide protein, omega-3 oils along with several antioxidants and vitamins.  All this is great for you and your baby.
