The Healthy Mummy Pregnancy Smoothie is a convenient and nutritious supplementary drink. Our Pregnancy Smoothie can help you meet the increased nutritional requirements of pregnant women. The Pregnancy Smoothie is made from whole foods, is high in protein and calcium, contains probiotics and is a good source of fibre.
How Can The Pregnancy Smoothie Help You?
Additional nutrients and calories are needed in pregnancy to support the mum and the baby. Our smoothie is a convenient and tasty way to increase your calories in pregnancy whilst nourishing your body.
If you are suffering from morning sickness and find eating food difficult – the smoothie is a great way to nourish your body with a easy to drink smoothie. It also contains ginger which helps to ease nausea.
If you are feeling exhausted, the smoothie is a nutrient dense snack high in protein, B vitamins and low constipation iron to help keep energy levels up.
If you are struggling to find the time or energy to eat nutrient dense and healthy foods then the smoothie will be a great help. You could also have it as a quick breakfast by adding fruit, oats and vegetables to your smoothie to further increase calories.
Protein and Calcium
It is ideal as a high-protein, high-calcium snack in pregnancy with each smoothie giving you 30% of your protein needs
The pregnancy smoothie is also free of all chemicals, fillers and artificial ingredients, has no fructose in, no added sugar and uses high quality dairy protein sourced from grass fed cows in New Zealand.
Nourish Your Body In Pregnancy
During pregnancy the nutritional demands on your body are greater in support of the growing baby along with alterations in maternal tissues and metabolism. The requirements of protein and nutrients, particularly folate, iodine, calcium, iron and zinc are higher.
During the second and third trimester additional protein is required for the growth of foetal, placental and maternal tissues, and estimated energy requirements are also higher.
Pregnant Mums Love It!
“This was one of the smartest decisions I have ever made. At 6 weeks pregnant I was diagnosed with Hyperemesis Gravidarum (severe morning sickness) and for a long time they were the only thing I could get to stay down. The amazing thing about the smoothies is that you know from the Healthy Mummy’s reputation that you are giving your body and your growing little one an amazing boost of nutrients.” – Rhiannon
“I’ll shout it from the rooftops, this stuff is my saving grace and will be the reason the second half of my pregnancy will be a healthier one with a lot less junk food. Now I can add more fruit, veg and water to my diet not to mention all the goodies in the Smoothie; probiotics, fibre, non constipation iron (we’ve all been there) plus b12, folic acid and so many other goodies. Instead of nibbling away on nutrient poor junk I’ll be making a Smoothie.” – Laura
“The smoothie is not a meal replacement, but a snack that packs an amazing punch of vitamins, minerals and all the good things we need to get us through the day. Now that my morning sickness has subsided, I find the smoothie is a perfect pick me up and recovery after a workout as it is high in protein and essential goodies.” – Caren
What Do The Experts Say?
Ali Pickes, Midwife says:
“The Smoothie is an easy and convenient way for pregnant women to get their intake of essential vitamins required during pregnancy. Having a Healthy Mummy Pregnancy Smoothie is an easy way to give you energy and help you glow.
The Healthy Mummy Pregnancy Smoothie is not a meal replacement but an ideal snack to compliment pregnancy supplements. Having easy accessible snacks on hand when you are pregnant can assist acid build up or reflux, a common complaint in pregnancy. It assists by helping your digestive system to process smaller meals rather than larger meals, which are harder to digest.”
Cheree Sheldon, Nutritionist says:
“As pregnancy is one of my specialist areas, I was eager to see the Healthy Mummy Pregnancy Smoothie. After studying the ingredients I would not hesitate to recommend it to my clients. In fact, I would probably prescribe it!
It has a great formula, with about 100 calories per serve (not including ingredients you combine it with) and it is a perfect snack.
This smoothie has no artificial colours or preservatives and is not GMO. As it is sweetened with thaumatin, a natural sweetener from fruit, it is not artificially sweetened and has no sugar, or fructose, so will not have a negative impact on your blood sugars.”
Q: What is the difference between the normal Healthy Mummy Smoothie and the Pregnancy Smoothie?
A: The Pregnancy smoothie has additional protein, calcium, iron and key nutrients needed in pregnancy. The normal smoothie is focused on post pregnancy and doesn’t contain all the extra nutrients needed in pregnancy. If you do have the original and non pregnancy one please note that they do not have any caffeine, chemicals or artificial sweeteners in them, so they are safe as a once a day snack in pregnancy or as a nutritional boost. Please also note that one smoothie contains 180mcg RE Vitamin A. The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of Vitamin A for pregnancy and breastfeeding is 700-800mcg, with an upper limit of intake of 2800-3000mcg per day. Due to the above we recommend the pregnancy smoothie for pregnancy which has no Vitamin A and is high in protein, calcium and pregnancy nutrients needed.
