Lil Tip: Strawberries Are Natural Way to Get Folate

If you're expecting, you may want to indulge in some chocolate covered strawberries this Valentine's Day.

Since the juicy fruit contains both vitamin B and folate, they are a perfect snack for pregnant women.

A California Strawberry Commission press release said:

The good news for strawberry lovers is that a serving of eight medium berries provides nearly 9 per cent of the daily requirement of folate,"says Chris Christian, vice president trade and nutrition of the California
Strawberry Commission. "Folic acid is the synthetic form of folate, which is especially important for women of child-bearing age because it reducesthe chance of some birth defects, such as spina bifida."
