Pregnant Snacks | Modern Momma’s Top 5

Pregnant Snacks…that’s where I’m at.

There is just no way I am eating as well as I did during my first pregnancy as I am now. With a toddler to chase, a puppy to watch and everything else that gets in the way during the day, sitting down to a meal isn’t always an option. I always sit down for dinner, and usually by then I am famished. So, what’s a Mama to do? Have yummy and healthy snacks that are readily available when hunger strikes.

  1. Tons of fruit. Just today I went to do our weekly grocery shopping and bought already prepared fresh pineapple, mango, and cantaloupe. I also bought bananas, strawberries, grapes and blueberries. Fruit is such an easy and healthy snack.
  2. Yogurt! Chobani and any most other yogurt is a favorite in this house. I add it and eat it with everything including granola. I can easily whip up a smoothie in a couple minutes with yogurt and frozen or fresh fruit.
  3. Luna bars. These bars are my favorite pregnant or not. They are very satisfying, come in a variety of flavors, are easy to store, and are super affordable at just about a dollar. My favorite flavor of the moment is chocolate dipped coconut. You can often find several in my diaper bag or purse.
  4. Cheese. I absolutely love cheese, but who doesn’t right? A slice of cheese or some string cheese is a good quick way to grab a bit of protein and satisfy a salty craving.
  5. Trader Joe’s Rainbow Trail Mix. This mix has raisins, peanuts, almonds, and chocolate covered candies {m&m’s}. I like to have at least a handful of nuts a day and nuts are a great source of protein and good fats.

And, if G happens to see me eating any of these I don’t feel horrible if she wants to share. Better than me binging on a bag of chips or something. We will leave that up to T.J. since his pregnant snacking is a whole other blogpost!

  1. Ummm…those sound like FANTASTIC snacks! I would totally come have a snack with you!

  2. Way to go! Such a great list of HEALTHY snacks. Thank you!

  3. Great list of snacks!!

  4. I used to keep a drawer stuffed with snacks when I worked full-time out of the house. Pregnant was no exception – tea, biscuits, almonds, raisins, granola bars, energy bars, cereal, peanut butter…alright, now I need to go get something to eat. 🙂

  5. You are SO much healthier than I was with my second pregnancy. I think I lived on fast food. YUCK! Good for you, Mama!

  6. Now I am hungry 🙂 I am a huge fan of trail mix, pregnant or not. Such a filling and satisfying snack!

  7. I am so hungry now and I am not pregnant. I love some trail mix! YUM!

  8. Love these suggestions! Healthy, satisfying and easy to grab and go. Thanks for sharing!

  9. I love Luna bars, too! I love snacks that you don’t feel guilty eating!

  10. I forgot how much I like Luna bars. I haven’t bought them in ages. Pre-cut fruit is one of my splurges at Whole Foods. I don’t know why but we always eat more when I don’t have to cut it up!

  11. Those are some great healthy snacks!!! Also? If I could live on cheese, I would. Along with ice cream. And cupcakes. 😉 Clearly my snack choices are not as healthy as yours!

  12. YUM. Good choice of snacks, my friend. Your baby will thank you! 🙂 PS- I could survive solely on cheese, too. We always have string cheese and blocked cheese in our house!

  13. I’m all about this list, except the Luna Bars. I don’t know why… I just don’t like them. Fruits and trail mix though… those are my big ones. 🙂

  14. I’m keeping these in mind for the next time I get pregnant (hopefully later this year!). I know it’s going to be harder to get good foods in next time around, as I will have a toddler in tow as well.

  15. These are my kind of snacks preggo or not! I also like hummus with pita chips, celery & peanut butter and apples with peanut butter. Yum!

  16. Yum to everything! Now I’m hungry
