Coconut Water

Coconut water is one drink that pregnant and nursing moms should always have in their fridge.  During pregnancy it is an ideal rehydrating beverage with it’s perfect electrolyte balance and more potassium than any sports drink.  Coconut water also relieves exhaustion and aids in digestion.  Its great for breastfeeding moms too not only because you need extra liquids during this time, but also because it contains lauric acid which is anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-viral, thus it helps protect babies against various infections.  Great brands to try are Vitacoco and Zico.

  5. Vita Coco is the best! It is so refreshing I drink it all the time. It helps keep my energy up and I can focus better while drinking it as well.
