Eggs for Pregnancy

Eggs, considered a nutritional powerhouse, is an excellent food to recommend to these women during pregnancy. According to Niva Shapira of Tel-Aviv University in Israel, eggs can provide various nutrients, vitamins and minerals that are also found in human milk and that support peak brain development (1).
If those eggs are also produced in such a way as to contain high levels of DHA, then they become even more supportive to the young one’s brain (2).
