Homemade Sesame Seed Bars

Making your own snacks to include in your healthy eating plan is a great way to ensure your pregnancy weight loss isn’t derailed by snacking on high calorie foods.

When the need for a snack strikes, having your own healthy, home made snacks on offer is a great way to avoid processed, high- sugar, low-nutrition snacks like chocolate bars, packaged cakes and tubs of ice cream.
