Nutritionists are becoming keen on the benefits of whole grains and healthy fatty acids as a part of a healthier diet, especially during pregnancy. Flaxseeds are a good nutritional source of omega-3 fatty acids and fiber. Omega-3 not only has heart healthy benefits for you, but also has been shown to help with your growing baby’s cognitive and visual development.
There’s some debate about flaxseed during pregnancy, so speak with your healthcare provider if you’re concerned.
