Healthy Way to Satisfy Hunger and Food Cravings of Pregnant Women

I understand the feeling… I’ve been there!!!

 

When you’re pregnant, you tend to crave for MORE food. It’s actually normal to crave during that time, but what if you can’t stop craving for… JUNK FOODS?!

 

Eating junk foods while pregnant should be a MAJOR thing because you ALWAYS have to consider your health as well as the growing baby inside you. Disregarding it could lead to the following:

  • swollen feet (pagmamanas)
  • crazy blood pressure results
  • constipation
  • less nutrient intake (because you become already full after eating junk foods and then you won’t eat healthy foods anymore)
  • health disorders for the baby
  • gestational diabetes

 

But now, there’s a great news for mom-to-be out there! Unilab has come up with CRAVE HEALTHY!

The Gift of Healthy ‘Crowning Glory’ Fit for the Queen this Mother’s Day

CLICHE it may be, but there’s indeed a woman behind the person we are today. And that’s no less than her—our mother. We used to call her nanayinay‘naymama, mommy or simply mom. Needless to say, she deserves more than that given the pivotal role she fulfills in rearing us from childhood to adulthood and possibly for the rest of our lives.

Motherhood is a tough 24-hour job, no pay, no day off, sometimes it is unappreciated, but yet resignation is impossible. A mother is a woman created by God to bring love, joy, happiness and care to this world, to every families. I am so glad God has created a woman to be a mother, even though motherhood is a full time job, a mother’s work is never done.

There may be opposing beliefs whether that greater maternal instinct is biologically predetermined or socially imposed, but everyone would agree that a mother is hardwired to love and care about the whole family, especially the children, all the time. For better or worse, it’s always the welfare of everyone at home on top of her priority. No wonder she’s an epitome of a doting human being that touches everybody’s life. So, it’s but right to honor and return all the favors she has done for us. And what a better way to do this than this Mother’s Day.

Mother’s Day is a time for people to thank their moms for their never-ending sacrifices for the family. After all, they assume different roles round-the-clock just to make our lives comfortable – a chef to prepare our meals every day, a doctor to tend to us when we are sick, a teacher to help us with school work and life problems, a CEO of the household, our protector to make sure we are always safe, and so many more!

In celebration of Mother’s Day, Solane, the leading provider of LPG solutions, reminds everyone to show their love and appreciation to the woman who ceaselessly devotes herself to the family. This occasion is another moment that falls in perfectly with Solane’s Dapat Lang campaign, a program that emphasizes the importance of doing the right thing, for the family, for others and society as a whole.
