Pregnant women are advised to eat small and often, to keep energy levels up. Get into the habit of stocking nutritious snacks in your pantry, fridge and anywhere you would normally keep treats (the car, at work) Making them easy to access will help when you need a quick fix - put the hummus and wholegrain crackers at the front of your fridge and pantry, the fruit on the bench or table. Snacks with the most staying power combine carbs with protein so dried fruit and nuts, whole-grain crackers and cheese, yohgurt with muesli. They keep your blood sugar levels stable so you can avoid sugar highs and lows.
