It’s Spring! Eating Seasonal Food to Boost Nutrition in Pregnancy & Postpartum

Fruits and vegetables are usually cheaper, fresher, and taste better when they’re in season. When food is less expensive and taste better, you’re more likely to buy it, thereby upping your overall nutrition. Plus, when you buy what’s in season in your area, your helping support local growers. Joining a local crop share or local grocery delivery service, or visiting your area’s weekly farmers’ market makes it easy to get local food that’s in season. Plan your spring meals around fruits and vegetables in season with the following lists and recipes.
