This recipe has important nutrients for mom and baby, including:

Folic acid

Folic acid helps the healthy development of a baby's brain and spinal cord. It is also needed to make red and white blood cells. Good sources of folic acid include fortified cereals, leafy green vegetables, citrus fruits, beans, and nuts. Women who get 400 micrograms (0.4 milligrams) of folic acid daily prior to conception and during early pregnancy can reduce the risk that their baby will be born with a neural tube defect (a birth defect involving incomplete development of the brain and spinal cord).
