Top tips for mum's nutrition

A woman needs to look after herself while pregnant and breastfeeding to give her baby the best possible start in life, and eating a healthy diet really makes a difference; helping her baby to grow and develop and also keeping her fit and well

Advise women to take/eat: 

In addition, a woman’s diet should also provide omega-3 fatty acids (e.g. from oily fish), iodine (e.g. from fish and grains), vitamin B6 (e.g. from poultry, eggs and vegetables), zinc (e.g. from meat and dairy products) and riboflavin (e.g. from milk, eggs and rice).

N.B. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should speak to a healthcare professional before taking any supplements.
