Pomegranate Date Shake

Dates are naturally sweet, soft, and filled with nutrients like folate (which is important for preventing neural tube defects at the beginning of pregnancy), vitamin K, potassium and iron. 

Not only are they really tasty and filled with nutrition, there may actually be other benefits to consuming dates during pregnancy. There is limited research on this, but there is some evidence to show that if you have a healthy and low risk pregnancy consuming around 60-80g of dates in late pregnancy (based on my food scale and the dates I have at home, 1 date is about 20g) may increase cervical ripening and reduce the need for a medical labor induction.
