A healthy diet is a balanced diet - we should all be able to enjoy everything in moderation.
As Vegemite is a concentrated yeast extract it is quite high in B vitamins - particularly Folate (a vitamin very important during pregnancy), vitamin B1, B2 and vitamin B3. It's also low in kilojoules (energy), fat and carbohydrates, so in terms of weight loss/weight maintenance it is what we call a free food. Vegemite won't affect your blood glucose levels, blood fat levels or hinder your weight loss goals.
On the other hand, Vegemite is quite high is sodium (salt). However, as long as you are not practically living off Vegemite (eating it in large doses for breakfast, lunch and dinner) it can be incorporated into your diet as part of a balanced diet. If you actually read the product nutrition information a single serve is 5g - that should spread 2 pieces of bread. Personally, I find Vegemite quite flavoursome so 5g is ample for me!
Hope you found this information useful!
