Bellybar Mom and Mom-to-Be Nutrition Review
Until very recently, I had no idea Bellybar products existed! Who knew that there were nutrition bars specially formulated for pregnant women and nursing moms, and other products to go along with them? I sure didn't! When I had the opportunity to try out the products, I jumped at the chance. While I diligently take my prenatal vitamins plus a DHA supplement, I can always use more snacks! The original Bellybars are delicious. They come in several flavors, and I tried both the Baby Needs Chocolate and Berry Nutty Cravings. Baby Needs Chocolate has a true chocolate flavor blended with oats and nuts. Berry Nutty Cravings actually tasted like a blueberry-cranberry muffin with frosting on top. YUM! Since I have gestational diabetes, I have a pretty firm diet and eating schedule, and the bars were substantial snacks that both kept me satisifed and also kept my blood sugar regulated. The Bellybar Chews were also fantastic. The tangy flavor of the Citrus on Board variety was so delicious, you'd never know they were packed with calcium, folic acid and omega-3 DHA, all nutrients our pregnant bodies need. These definitely satisfy my need to snack on something little at work without going overboard and eating a bag of candy! My absolute favorite Bellybar product was the Due for Chocolate Bellybar shakes. Served chilled, these little guys could pass for a milkshake, which is a no-no on my current diet! After reading that they contain DHA, fiber, protein and calcium, it was great to not actually taste any of it! These shakes are rich and smooth, yet not too sweet or heavy. They also worked extremely well with my diabetic diet, so they get bonus points from me!
Why Buy Bellybar products?
Bellybar provides almost half of the extra calories that pregnancy calls for, and it comes packed with extra dietary vitamins and minerals, which are derived from natural ingredients such as flaxseed for Omega 3 fatty acids. Bellybar also understands that pregnancy is a special time, and “when you are eating well and living a healthy lifestyle, studies show that conception is actually easier, your pregnancy outcome may be better and it may even be easier to breastfeed and have a good milk supply. There is recognized value of eating natural foods for nutrition, and Bellybar fills the gap between what you eat and what you need during this important time.”
