This smoothie is a delicious way to include a vital nutrient for baby in your daily pregnancy diet.
One cup of spinach provides 65 percent of your daily folate requirement during pregnancy, making this smoothie a tasty winner. In the past few decades, folate has come under the radar of health professionals as a must-have nutrient for pregnancy. It is so vital, in fact, that doctors also recommend its synthetic form, folic acid.
Folate has been linked to the development of the babyâ€™s brain and spinal cord during pregnancy, and by getting enough of it, youâ€™ll significantly reduce the risk of neural defects.
