What's a good snack when you're pregnant?

Honestly, all I want to eat are bowls of cereal and granola bars.

I make myself eat other things and produce and fruit, but I really just want chocolate chip granola bars all day.

  • I love animal crackers. I buy the individual bagged ones and eat them at work. I also, love grapes. They make great snacks if you freeze them too.

  • "ur body craves what it needs" -as soo soo many people keep telling me

    if it helps, try making a fresh Fruit smoothie (so u get ur fruit for the day) but put some like nature valley granola bar in it -healthy & tastey

    best advise** you can keep eating the food you crave - just dress it up w/healthy snacks =)

    ((i have the same problem- only ive been craving the Nutri-grain cereal bars))

  • Carrots and ranch dressing, apples and peanut butter, strawberries and whipped cream. Everything you put in your body should benefit your child one way or another. That's the way I looked at things, when I was preggo. Don't get me wrong I did treat myself from time to time.

  • My favorite is a yogurt smoothie. I make it out of plain yogurt, skim milk, frozen berries, and a pinch of honey. Sometimes I add a banana as well. It tastes great, fills me up, and is a good source of calcium.
