E is for Eggs

Another great source of protein, eggs also contain thiamine, which converts carbohydrates into energy that is essential for your unborn baby’s brain development. Have them scrambled, pouched or sunny side up to top up on your egg intake.

Just make sure they are fully cooked - raw or undercooked eggs do carry a risk of salmonella so should be avoided in pregnancy.
