This is a healthy and nutritious drink during pregnancy. It has all the goodness of strawberries and lemon. It is even good for nausea found in the early stages of pregnancy. A healthy diet is very important during pregnancy for the well being of both mom and child. So a variety of nutrients should be included in the meals for a balanced diet.
Strawberries are good source of iron which is needed for pregnant women. Iron deficiency can cause anemia (a condition in which the blood is deficient in red blood cells, in hemoglobin or in total volume). A pregnant woman needs more vitamins, minerals and nutrients than a regular non-pregnant woman. Fruits and vegetables that are rich in vitamin C help the mom and child to have healthy gums and other tissues. Strawberries are rich in Vitamin C too!
Lemon is also rich in Vitamin C essential to the healthy growth of the baby and also for the mom. Lemon juice diluted with water is very useful for pregnant women. It helps build the bones in the unborn child.
