All fruits and vegetables can be helpful during pregnancy. Fruits and vegetables are an important part of a nutritious diet throughout pregnancy, as they provide vitamins, minerals, and fiber to aid in digestion. Try to have a variety of dark green, orange and other vegetables each day. Dark green vegetables include spinach, collards, broccoli and kale, while orange vegetables include carrots, sweet potatoes, pumpkin and butternut squash. Apples, berries, citrus fruit, (such as oranges and grapefruit) and tree fruit, (such as peaches and plums) are all excellent fruit choices. It is best to consume a wide variety of fruits and vegetables in any form (fresh, frozen, canned, dried, 100% juice) throughout your pregnancy.
