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.

About the author

Parent Diviner

A bit quirky, I started blogging after successfully getting my son to eat by talking like a robot. I then transformed into said robot and have been writing about my parenting learnings ever since. Inspired by my infant daughter, imaginative toddler son and supportive husband, I document life as I know it: chaotic, coffee soaked and filled with awesomeness. In my spare time I enjoys fake shopping online, writing love letters to Ryan Gosling, and avoiding folding laundry.
