Fruit (aka nature’s candy) is our all-time fave for good reason! Living with gestational hypertension? Opt for potassium-rich fruits like bananas, cantaloupe, and honeydew to maintain healthy blood pressure. Need an energy boost? Grab an orange or a pint of blueberries. Tummy trouble? Go for fiber-rich fruits like apricots, mangos, or strawberries. No matter what your body craves, there’s a fruit dish for you, Mama! To be extra precautious, wash the rinds and scrub the firm skins on whole fruits like citrus and melons under cool, running, drinkable water. Also note: Fruit are carbs, so if you’re a mama with gestational diabetes, limit your intake to 30 grams per meal or 15 grams per snack.
