20 Quick & Easy Pregnancy Snacks


As your pregnancy progresses, you’ll likely find yourself dealing with nausea, pangs of hunger, and odd hankerings. Your changing body can make meal planning a challenge for even the most organized mom-to-be. One simple solution is to have quick and easy snacks on hand.

For the most part, you’ll want to look for nutrient dense snacks with a good balance of protein, complex carbohydrates, and healthy fats. Pro-mom tip: eat the rainbow! Adding fruits and veggies in a variety of colors can help you add necessary vitamins and minerals, plus your plate will look much more appetizing.
