Pregnant? Here's Some Food For Thought...


Sardines? Raspberries? Curly kale? When thinking about your pregnancy diet it helps to understand how the foods you eat can positively influence your growing baby’s future health. Oily fish, for example, is the richest source of omega 3, which plays an important role in your baby’s rapidly –developing brain.

"When it comes to fat there's one type you don't want to cut back on: omega 3 fatty acids. Maternal stores are depleted in pregnancy and breastfeeding, so it's more important than ever to enrich your diet with oily fish, seafood, nuts and seeds. Researchers have found that infants born to mothers with higher blood levels of the omega-3 fatty acid at delivery had advanced levels of attention spans well into their second year of life. Steer clear of fish oil supplements made from cod liver oil though. Although cod liver oil is a good source of omega 3, it contains amounts of Vitamin A that are potentially toxic during pregnancy" Katy Gordon-Smith, Aptaclub nutrition expert, mum-to-be.
