Khajur (Date) is the main food consumed in the month of Ramadan. It has many health benefits like dates are easy to digest so they don’t exhaust the fasting person stomach.Dates decrease the great hunger feeling of the fasting person and it also prepares the stomach to receive the food after being inactive through out the day with activating the release of digestive secretions and juices.
Dates protect the fasting person from having constipation as a result of changing meals times or as a result of having low fiber amounts in meals.

Not only in Ramadan but dates can be consumed even daily , normally I like to prepare (Khajur)dates nut balls at home and preserve it for a week in a small quantities.

Why this recipe is great for expectant Mums

Did you know many cultures and believe dates are a fantastic food to eat while pregnant.
A study from the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology in 2011 found the following effects for date eaters too:

First stage labour was shorter
83% of those whom ate dates had their amniotic sac in place at admission (This can reduce the chance of infection).
Cervical dilatation at hospital admission was higher in mothers that ate dates.
Cesarian rate was slightly smaller in the date eating group

Please note the women in the study ate between 3 – 7 dates daily.

It is always essential to remember that anything you consume should be held in moderation. The same applies to dates, and you should only have a handful a day, not more.
