Many health experts agree that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. During pregnancy breakfast is even more important...
  • Skipping breakfast (or other meals) makes you more prone to preterm labor.
  • Breakfast helps your body maintain normal and steady blood sugar levels - important for both your health and your baby's.
  • Skipping breakfast can increase morning sickness symptoms. I know it's hard to eat when you feel icky, but try to eat something mild like a banana or some crackers. Once your morning sickness subsides, have normal breakfasts again.
  • Missing your morning meal can make you eat too many calories later in the day, which can contribute to excessive pregnancy weight gain.

  • Scrambled eggs
  • Organic yogurt
  • A low sugar muffin or oatmeal cookie with fruit
  • Almost any cereal - hot or cold. Avoid excessively sugary cereals, but note that even sugary cereals with marshmallows and chocolate are healthier than no breakfast.
  • Fruit smoothie
  • Granola
  • Cheese and crackers
  • Bagel and light cream cheese
  • Angel Milk
