  • Party Ideas - Food Drink and Recipes

    FOOD & DRINK

    You will definitely want to offer food and drink at any baby shower, but exactly what you want to offer will depend on time of day, any theme you may have, and your budget - not to mention the practicalities of serving food in your own home, if that's where the party is.

    When preparing your menu, consider foods that you have made previously that are easy to prepare or that can be made ahead of time and frozen. Now is not the time to experiment. The party will be much more enjoyable for you as the host if you are mingling with the guests rather than hanging out alone in the kitchen! Continue reading

  • Taking Folic Acid during pregnancy.

    greens
    • Folic acid is a vitamin that pregnant women are advised to take ideally before they are pregnant or as soon as they find out. In early stages of pregnancy, it is crucial that women take folic acid as it is used by the developing baby. It can be taken as a vitamin supplement, but can also be found in foods such as spinach, sprouts, broccoli, and potatoes. If folic acid is taken in early pregnancy, the risk of having a baby born with problems such as spina bifida or a spinal cord problem is reduced. It can also reduce the risk of having a premature labour. For most women the recommended does is 400 micrograms (0.4 mg) a day, and you should continue to take the supplement in the first 12 weeks of your pregnancy. A balanced diet that is rich in foods containing folic acid is also advised through out the pregnancy.

  • Eating for two? Fact or Fiction?

    It is fact that pregnant women need to provide good nutrition for two people, but it is fiction that she should eat for two. The unborn baby gets all the nutrients they need from its mother through the umbilical cord, so a healthy and balanced diet is important. If the mother is lacking any vitamins or nutrients, then this could be passed on to the baby. It is advised by nutritional experts that a woman who is not pregnant needs around 2100 calories per day, and that a pregnant lady should consume around 2500 calories per day. If the mother is breast feeding, they need around 3000 calories per day.

    healthy meal

    While putting on too much weight can affect a woman’s health and increase the risk of complications, gaining too little weight can also cause problems and mean the body is not storing enough fat. The current advice is not to go on a weight-loss or calorie-restricted diet during pregnancy, although a woman’s midwife or GP may have special advice if she weighs more than 100kg. Instead, current advice is based on eating a balanced diet and managing weight at an appropriate level.
