Seafood and its effect on pregnancy cravings
It has been shown that include sea food in your diet while pregnant might even assist to alleviate pregnancy cravings. Looking for something sweet in the grocery store aisles? Try putting a cranberry glaze over your salmon to make it more festive. You’re in the mood for something salty, right? It’s possible that adding some walnuts to your tuna salad may accomplish the job.
What portion of sea food should I eat?
According to recent statistics, pregnant women in the United States are not eating the required quantities of fish throughout their pregnancy. As recommended by the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, women who are pregnant or nursing should consume at least 8 and up to 12 ounces (or 2-3 meals) of a variety of sea food each week, preferably in small portions. Shark, swordfish, king mackerel, and tilefish are the only four types of fish that should be avoided by pregnant and nursing women throughout their pregnancy and lactation. All other types of fish can—and should—be consumed for the sake of your and your child’s health.
