Healthy Foods For Every Mother

Having the right food is the cornerstone of a healthy lifestyle. And this is extremely important for our mothers who are always chasing time, trying to balance their work and family and finding time to indulge in their personal passions. Amidst performing all their duties, more often than not, they overlook their own health.

Adopting simple nutritional changes in the diet can ensure nutritional inadequacies are kept at bay and there is no adverse long-term impact on their health. 

Here are 5 foods that can get your mother healthy and fit: 

Dairy Products: Milk, yoghurt, eggs and other dairy products are rich sources of calcium and vitamin D. A deficiency of these foods can cause osteoporosis in old age and during motherhood, impact the quality of breastmilk as well. 

Fruits: They are rich in fibre, vitamins and minerals and are essential to ensure that several problems are curbed. Fruits such as apples lower the risk of diabetes, bananas aid in improving digestive health and grapes lower the risk of cardiovascular diseases. These are easily available and can be taken in the form of juices, smoothies or a simple fruit salad. 

Legumes: These are high in protein and fibre and have various health benefits. Black beans help in regulating the body's blood sugar levels, chickpeas can help reduce weight and improve blood cholesterol levels, lentils help lower bad cholesterol, peas are shown to improve gut health. 

In summary, each legume has different benefits and it's important to have a holistic diet that includes all of this. 

Green vegetables: No diet is complete without green vegetables. They are densely packed with vitamins, minerals and fibre and are low in calories. They are an excellent source of folate that wards off depression. Vitamin C and E in these vegetables keeps skin healthy and also protects from the sun's damage. Spinach, beet greens, cabbage and broccoli must be regular additions in meals. 

Whole grain cereals: Apart from giving protein, fibre and vitamins, whole grain cereals are rich in antioxidants and also trace minerals such as zinc, magnesium, copper and iron. They help lower the risk of stroke, obesity, type 2 diabetes, cancer and chronic inflammation. Some of the easily available and low-cost whole grains are oatmeal, millets, barley and buckwheat.

This Mother’s Day, stock up your kitchen with these foods and show your mother that you care about her health, just like she does for you!
