Approx 1” of fresh root ginger grated

Pineapple for your healthy pregnancy diet:
- One cup of pineapple contains more than 130% of your daily Vitamin C needs
- Pineapples have a high fibre content so can aid digestion
- There was an old wives tale that eating pineapple can bring on labour – but don’t worry – it’s an old wives tale. Pineapples DO contain bromelain, which is thought to help soften your cervix, but you would need to eat around 7 – 10 pineapples in one sitting before it had any effect.
