Bone Broth Pregnancy
When a woman is pregnant, her body’s nutritional needs change and her protein requirement goes up during pregnancy. Protein requirements for pregnant women go up by about 30 grams and even more for mothers that are breastfeeding.
Bone Broth is a food that is fantastic for pregnancy because it is:
Extremely mineral rich- specifically magnesium, phosphorus and calcium which are indispensable for one’s baby’s ability to build strong, healthy bones. These minerals must be acquired from one’s diet, otherwise they will be taken right out of the mother’s own bones and given to her baby.
Has chondroitin and glucosamine which are 2 of the most vital nutrients for joints. These nutrients will help one’s baby’s joints in forming, they also sustain the mother’s joints during her pregnancy because weight gain strains the mother’s joints.
Bone broth helps with nausea because when nausea appears in the first weeks of pregnancy, it can be difficult to keep food down. Bone broth is very soothing and easy to consume and stays down. It is very simple for the pregnant mom to digest, and calms her stomach very rapidly.
Bone Broth For Babies
Bone broth is full of minerals, gelatin, and glycosaminoglycans which are all nutrients that aid in the development and health of teeth, bones, hair, nails, and joints in babies and adults alike.
Bone broth helps the lining of a baby’s digestive tract to mature and strengthen, preparing the baby’s stomach to digest more difficult foods later on. Just warm the bone broth to feed it to your baby on a spoon or offer your baby small sips from a cup.
You may begin feeding your baby bone broth as early as 6 months of age, and it can be used as a base for making a homemade hypoallergenic infant formula if your baby is sensitive to dairy.
Many parents have found that creating a taste for bone broth in their babies has greatly helped later to create healthy eaters of vegetable soups, and bone broth straight out of the sippy cup when they are sick or don’t feel well. Parents can use a little dropper to feed the baby bone broth and it is well tolerated by the baby.
A parent can also use bone broth as the base for creating purees out of any meats and veggies for the baby. Babies may not take to the taste immediately but remember it can take 10 or more attempts before a baby will enjoy a new food as they are getting accustomed to new textures, tastes, scents and foods!
