Yogurt


Calcium is always important for women, who are prone to bone-mineral loss as they age, but it's especially vital during pregnancy. Your baby needs calcium for bone growth, too, so if your body doesn't have enough of this nutrient, your baby's calcium supply will come directly from your bones. Yogurt will help you get the four to six servings of dairy and 1,000 mg of calcium you need daily. A perk is that it may aid in digestion if you're constipated. Dairy foods to avoid during pregnancy include soft cheeses, like brie and feta, because they're usually not pasteurized. But cottage cheese and cream cheese are fine to eat.
