With the improvement of living conditions, more and more pregnant mothers pay attention to the nutritional intake during pregnancy. It has become a fashion for pregnant mothers to prepare nuts and snacks every day. Nuts not only taste good, but also contain a variety of vitamins, which are also good for babies, so this has become the reason for choosing nuts as snacks during pregnancy.
However, does this mean that nuts can be eaten unscrupulously during pregnancy? Of course not! We must pay attention to the following situations!
▍ what are the benefits of eating nuts during pregnancy?

Studies have shown that early exposure to allergens can enhance the baby’s tolerance to allergens and reduce the probability of children’s food allergy. Pregnant mothers have no history of nut allergy and can often eat nuts during pregnancy, which can not only supplement various nutrients required by the body, but also reduce the risk of allergy related diseases in the future.
2. Improve blood glucose

2. Fried coke
Nuts contain a lot of fat, protein and carbohydrates, and ordinary heating is not enough to destroy them. However, when nuts are charred, the temperature is above 200 ℃, and at this time, these nutrients that were originally beneficial to the body begin to be partially transformed into carcinogenic benzopyrene, heterocyclic amine, acrylamide and other substances.
As advertised by merchants, there is always a taste that you want to eat, and all nuts are flavored. If the pregnant mother takes it for a long time, it may affect her health and then affect the little guy in her stomach.
If the nut taste is heavy, it is possible to use deteriorated nuts, because the heavy taste can mask the deteriorated taste of nuts. Therefore, if pregnant mothers choose nuts, they must choose original or even non added ones, so that they can really play a role in the child’s health.
Many pregnant mothers like to pick white nuts, but the nuts themselves are not like that. Businesses beautify nuts in order to sell them better, that is, bleach to remove the spots on the original fruit body. This kind of beautification makes some chemicals remain in nuts, especially pistachios. Those chemicals have a great impact on the body, so pregnant mothers must pay attention!
