Tell me more about BumpBar. How is it specifically formulated to provide healthy nutrition during my pregnancy?

And women only need about 300 extra calories a day to support a healthy pregnancy. At 240 calories, BumpBar is a convenient snack that helps you get the extra calories you need. But they're not just any old calories: BumpBar was specially developed by our in-house obstetrician to maximize nutritional benefits for you and your baby. The BumpBar recipe includes natural sources of folic acid, calcium and iron. To learn more about how BumpBar's ingredients are designed to help support a healthy pregnancy, keep reading below.
