Strawberry Greek Yoghurt and Granola

During pregnancy women should only consume pasteurized dairy and that includes yoghurt.  Unpasteurized foods can have a higher risk of containing bacteria that can be harmful to both mother and baby.  There are a wide range of benefits to eating yoghurt during pregnancy and there are further details and studies provided in detail on the Consumer Health Digest Website   www.consumerhealthdigest.com

These include:

  • Prevent Insulin Resistance
  • Ease inflammatory problems
  • Increase fetal tooth development
  • Stronger Bones

Strawberries have a great amount of fiber and nutrients such as manganese and potassium that aid the growth of stronger bones for your baby.
