7 Healthier Chocolate Cravings When Pregnant

RSS
Craving chocolate since you became pregnant? Want to stay on the healthy side with your snacking? You don’t have to eat a chocolate bar to satisfy your cravings. There are plenty of healthy chocolate snacks that you can grab instead. However, chocolate does have a small amount of caffeine so keep your consumption under 400 milligrams per day.

 

 

Chocolate Pudding

 

Chocolate pudding isn’t just delicious, it’s the perfect way to get a boost of calcium. Stick to a serving of 8 ounces and you are only eating roughly 100 calories.

 

 

Chocolate Covered Nuts

 

Choose a nut like almonds and cover them in dark chocolate and you have a protein packed snack you can eat on the go. Almonds also have folate, which helps prevent birth defects so they are extra good for pregnant women. Dark chocolate is also a great antioxidant.

 

 

Chocolate Milk

 

Get all the benefits of a glass of milk with all the yummy flavor of chocolate. If you are having indigestion add a little fresh mint.

 

 

Peanut Butter and Chocolate

 

Want a sandwich with a little something to capture your craving for something sweet? Try a peanut butter sandwich with a dark chocolate spread.

 

 

Popcorn and Chocolate

 

Like snacks that are both salty and sweet? Try popcorn dusted with cocoa. Microwave a bag of popcorn and add one tablespoon of cocoa powder. Seal the bag and shake it up.

 

 

Fruit and Chocolate

 

Looking for a decadent finger food? Make yourself chocolate covered fruit kabobs. For instance, take pineapple chunks and insert a toothpick in each chunk, then melt chocolate in the microwave for 30 seconds and dip your pineapple chunks in the melted chocolate.

 

 

Trail Mix

 

Mix a handful of your favorite nuts with raisins and granola then add a handful of chocolate chips and you have a sweet and tasty trail mix perfect for snacking!
