Leeks

 

Tasty Tip

Leeks have a very mild, sweet flavor, making them especially appealing when you’re suffering from morning sickness. If your stomach’s sensitive but you can’t face plain broth, try adding sliced leeks and shiitake mushrooms with minced fresh ginger.

 

Serving Size:  1 cup, raw

 

Have a healthy baby:

Calcium: which is essential for the development of your baby’s bones. Plus, calcium may help combat some common symptoms of pregnancy, including irritability, insomnia and back and leg pains.

 

Vitamin B6: which is necessary for your body to metabolize energy from the carbohydrates, fats and proteins in your diet. There’s also evidence that vitamin B6 can help alleviate morning sickness.

 

Vitamin K: Needed for proper blood clotting and healthy bone formation.

 

Manganese: Helps support normal skeletal development in the baby.
