Healthy snacks you should keep in handy now

Team AckoFeb 8, 2024

When you’re pregnant, it is important to look after your health in order to nurture your baby. Smart snack choices provide your body with additional nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that are essential to your baby’s development. This list of pregnancy snacks includes quick and easy snack ideas to satisfy your pregnancy cravings while staying healthy.



    Avocado toast

    Mash up half an avocado, which gives you your dose of good fats, slather on whole grain toast, and drizzle over a squeeze of lemon— even honey, if you’re hankering for something sweet.


    Whip up a batch with yogurt and your favorite fruit! Remember to avoid papaya and pineapple.

    Hummus, veggie sticks, and pita bread

    Chop some of your favorite veggies, unwrap some pita bread and enjoy.

    Baked potato with yogurt and chives

    The creamy, rich mix of the potato with yogurt in place of sour cream will satisfy any carb cravings.


    Almonds are a great choice because they are high in minerals – just a handful will help take the edge off your hunger.

    Apple slices

    These really fill the need for something sweet, juicy, and crisp.


    These are great to keep nausea at bay. Try them with hummus or peanut butter.


    Buy corn and pop it at home to save on calories. Sprinkle salt and pepper and munch away!


    The probiotics in yogurt will keep your immune system strong. Add chopped fresh fruit to make a yummy snack.


    Instead of ice creams that are laden with fat; have a refreshing fruit-flavored sorbet with fresh fruit as toppings.

    Dried fruits

    Get a lightly salted or totally unsalted mix of dried fruits and nuts — they pack a heart-healthy punch and will keep you feeling fuller and longer than a carb-heavy snack.
