Sour fruit is healthy during pregnancy
During pregnancy it is important that women pay attention to healthy and nutrient-rich food intake. After all, the fetus must be adequately supplied with vitamins and minerals. Many women have problems with their weight at this time. That is why Christian Albring, President of the Professional Association of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, advises women to eat more sour fruit than sweet fruit. "Grapes, for example, contain almost only water and sugar," he replies. It is therefore not surprising that many women show enormous weight gain during this time. On average, women in Germany gain 12 to 16 kilos during pregnancy. This can sometimes lead to back pain.
In addition, there is usually more vitamin C in acidic fruit. Of course, the fruit should always be eaten fresh, washed or peeled. Fruit salads from fresh fruit donate many important vitamins and minerals. The antioxidant ingredients increase the well-being of the expectant mother and support the healthy development of the baby. Sour fruit is, for example, soft fruit, pome fruit, stone fruit, currants, citrus fruits, kiwi, pineapple and melons. (fr)
