Fertility Food and What to Eat When Trying to Get Pregnant

Fertility and diet are hot topics—and fertility-related foods are part of that craze. But can eating certain foods really boost your fertility? There is no surprise that there are many foods that can help to support fertility. In fact our diet and other things we choose to consume is the single greatest factor we have control over that can help to support fertility and pregnancy. 

But the truth is, you can get pregnant no matter what you eat — and no matter what you don’t eat. But there is some fascinating research showing that your fertility may be what you eat — and that filling your belly with certain foods (and avoiding others) may just help you fill your belly with a baby faster. 

The scientific jury’s still debating the food-fertility connection, but in the meantime why not give it a try. And speaking of food, take the following list with a grain of salt (and a prenatal vitamin — which is a proven preconception must). Bottom line: eat a nutritious, balanced pregnancy diet and you’re likely fueling your fertility. Make a diet of junk food and fast food, and you’re probably not doing your fertility a favor. Enjoy this list of fertility boosting foods. 


Lentils are high in fiber and protein, which can help improve ovulation. Lentils are also an excellent source of folic acid, a vital component that aids with conception and helps in healthy embryo development.


Avocados are full of Vitamin K, potassium and folate that assists your body with so many things— vitamin absorption, blood pressure regulation and more!

They are also comprised of monounsaturated fats (healthy fats) that offer tons of dietary fiber and folic acid, which we know are crucial during the early stages of pregnancy.

Sunflower Seeds

Sunflower seeds offer substantial amounts zinc, folic acid, and selenium— all of which are potent fertility nutrients with stellar benefits.

Greek Yoghurt and Cheese

Fatty foods are great for boosting fertility. Greek yoghurt and cheese contain calcium, probiotics, and vitamin D, all of which help improve ovulation. Also, you’ll receive an ample amount of protein from each food, reinforcing your odds of a successful pregnancy through more precise ovulation cycles.


To pile on more of those healthy fats, salmon offers loads of protein and valuable omega-3s that improve fetal development throughout pregnancy. Men can also benefit from eating salmon for its high levels of vitamin D and selenium, two components that raise semen levels and enhance its overall health.


Asparagus is a powerhouse food with incredible benefits for those trying to get pregnant. Studies show that eating one cup of boiled asparagus will provide you with over 60% of your daily recommended value of folic acid, fulfill your daily vitamin K value, and strengthen your reproductive health with more than 20% of vitamins A, C, and B. It also contains substantial amounts of zinc and selenium, so men should also incorporate asparagus into their diet!
