If you are craving something sweet, dig into a fruit jelly. It will not just pacify your sweet tooth, but also provide vitamins and minerals. And it is absolutely safe in pregnancy.

Good fruit jelly is made from royal jelly, a product made by bees from the nectar they feast on from the flowers. And just like honey, royal jelly is full of nutrients that have healing properties. Fruit jelly has fruit fiber in it which makes it a great aid for digestion. It keeps you feeling full for longer and reduces cholesterol levels in the body. Jelly can be a good source of Vitamin C and also has traces of Vitamin B. These vitamins boost your immune system, strengthen your teeth, gums and bones and are great at healing minor cuts. Jelly also contains folate, essential for preventing birth defects in the baby. It also ensures healthy development of brain and nervous system of the foetus and reduces risk of developing neural tube defects, spina bifida and anencephaly in the baby. Rich in minerals like potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc and calcium, jelly helps in the development of healthy bones of your foetus, regulates your blood pressure, prevents bone loss and reduces stress and symptoms of depression in an expecting mom.

However, avoid eating jelly if you have a history of allergies. Excessive consumption of jelly can cause tightness in chest, nausea, itchy throat, coughing or skin rashes. Moderation is the key. Consult your doctor about foods safe during pregnancy.
