Nutrabella Bellybar Sampler Pack

Baby Mama Must-Haves

Here’s something nobody seems to warn you about when you embark on motherhood: those humongous horse pill prenatal vitamins you’re expected to swallow throughout pregnancy and while you’re nursing. You gag, you cough, slap your chest silly and still the darn thing is stuck in your throat. And when you do get it down, morning sickness kicks in, and you wonder what vital nutrient you might have missed out on today.

Baby Mama Must-Haves

Here’s something nobody seems to warn you about when you embark on motherhood: those humongous horse pill prenatal vitamins you’re expected to swallow throughout pregnancy and while you’re nursing. You gag, you cough, slap your chest silly and still the darn thing is stuck in your throat. And when you do get it down, morning sickness kicks in, and you wonder what vital nutrient you might have missed out on today.

Wouldn’t it be nice if some genius could figure out a way to fortify a yummy treat (preferably chocolate) you could just nibble on, chew, or sip to ensure you’re getting your share? Thankfully the women behind Bellybar by Nutrabella have. That’s why I’m sending all my expectant baby mama friends an adorable sampler of their bars, shakes, and chews that are brimming with folate, calcium, omega 3 fatty acids, and the vitamins essential for a healthy pregnancy. Despite the great nutrition, it’s all easy to swallow, because Bellybar products are honest-to-goodness food.

The flavors and ingredients match common pregnancy cravings: rich chocolate, tart citrus, soothing vanilla. Another plus is that the bars and shakes have 180 calories or less, and the chews go for a mere 20 calories—ensuring that anyone who enjoys them remains a hot mama post pregnancy.
