Looking for new food recipes that are good for you and your growing bump? We’ve got the best recipes for pregnant mamas – from fun healthy snacks to nutritious breakfasts and delicious dinners.

Braised fennel and tomato

A gorgeous, easy wintery dish, this recipe can be taken in all sorts of directions. Serve  it as a side dish with the lasagne and winter salad as I’ve suggested, or as a main meal  on soft polenta with a green salad.

Pitta pizzas

Pitta bread pizzas are a perfect light snack or go all out for a delicious quick and easy dinner.

Peach and pistachio galette

Whether it’s made with apples, apricots, peaches or damsons, it can be topped with whatever the heart desires. Instead of pistachios in the filling, almonds or chestnuts also taste great.

Lentil, haloumi and herb salad

The haloumi brings a wonderful savoury saltiness to this salad, but if you want to save a little time you can substitute ricotta salata (salted ricotta) – or even just some good-quality fresh ricotta.

Left over roast vegetable salad

When I’m cooking roast vegetables for dinner, I always make sure I cook extra, so I’m guaranteed leftovers to use in my lunch the next day. Substitute toasted pine nuts or almonds if you don’t have cashew nuts.

Cauliflower parmigiana

Here’s a spin on the classic layered eggplant dish that’s associated with southern Italy and is particularly popular in Naples.
