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.
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.”
