Fish for new mums and mums-to-be

Eating a nutritious, balanced diet is one of the best things we can do to stay healthy and well and it’s never more important than when we’re trying for a baby, pregnant or breastfeeding.

Eating five servings of fruit and veg each day, having fibre-rich starchy foods at each meal, enjoying around three servings of low-fat dairy products and a couple of portions of lean protein-rich foods, together with cutting back of fatty, sugary and salty foods are all good habits to get into. But health experts also recommend that mums-to-be and new mums should eat two portions of fish each week, one of which should be an oil-rich fish.
