This recipe has important nutrients for mom and baby, including:
Folic acid helps the healthy development of a baby's brain and spinal cord. It
is also needed to make red and white blood cells. Good sources of folic acid include
fortified cereals, leafy green vegetables, citrus fruits, beans, and nuts. Women who
get 400 micrograms (0.4 milligrams) of folic acid daily prior to conception and during
early pregnancy can reduce the risk that their baby will be born with a neural tube
defect (a birth defect involving incomplete development of the brain and spinal cord).
