Veal


You need three or four servings of lean protein a day during pregnancy. Great sources include veal, chicken, turkey, pork, and eggs. Veal is low in fat and high in folate and iron, which helps guard against anemia. If veal isn't your favorite type of beef, look for cuts of meat that are 90% lean or leaner. Meat labeled with the word "prime" tends to be fattier, while words like "select" or "choice" often indicate leaner meat.
