There are many nutritients that are vital to a woman's health, however there is one in particular that is a key nutrient during pregnany. Folic acid, or folate, helps make blood, prevents neural tube defects and other problems, and is crucial to cell manipulation. Folic acid is found in many foods, such as dark leafy vegetables, dark yellow and orange fruits, legumes, nuts, fortified breads, and our personal favorite, wheat germ!
We like wheat germ because you can add it to just about anything! Try adding a couple tablespoons to your fresh fruit smoothie, your baked goods, or your morning oatmeal! Not only will you be getting folic acid, but you'll also get Vitamin E, Iron, and some B Vitamins!
