Yes! Shallots not only taste great but also bring various health benefits for expecting mothers. Shallots contain folate, essential for keeping neural tube defects like spina bifida at bay and contributing to the mental and emotional health of the growing baby. Shallots help control blood sugar levels, thereby preventing gestational diabetes, common during pregnancy. Shallots also keep a check on blood pressure levels during pregnancy and prevent blood clots from forming. Additionally, shallots also fight bacterial and viral infections.
