Dates are delicious, nutritious, and can naturally prepare your body for birth – what’s not to love!
We love dates for so many reasons – they’re filled with fiber, iron, potassium, magnesium, and B vitamins, and as one of the sweetest fruits, they are the perfect substitute to refined sugar. They’ve also been shown to make the first stage of labor easier and the cervix softer and more dilated when you consume six dates per day for 4 weeks leading up to birth.
Kid Tip:Let your child dump the dried herbs, mix them with the cheese, and arrange the dates on the baking sheet. Opt for a thin layer of nut butter, rather than globs, for kids under 4 years oldOther combos we love:
If you or your child is having a health emergency, please call 911 or your emergency services number immediately.
