Sugar and Spice and All Things Nice

Yesterday I baked some hazelnut meringues! So delicious! But they are mostly made of brown and white sugar! So “How much sugar can I eat while pregnant?” – how many times have you asked yourself this question?

The bad news is that sugar, like alcohol, caffeine and many medications (drugs) passes through into our blood stream very quickly. And whatever is in your blood mostly goes through your placenta and to your baby.

Most people already know that too much sugar, caffeine and ANY alcohol is bad for your growing baby. Why? Well the are too many reasons to go into them all today, but Gestational Diabetes, large-for-dates babies, caffeine-withdrawal for new born’s are just a few.

Read further information on these and other healthy eating tips at http://www.natural-pregnancy-midwife.com/healthy-diet-for-pregnancy.html and http://www.natural-pregnancy-midwife.com/foods-to-avoid.html or http://www.natural-pregnancy-midwife.com/alcohol-during-pregnancy.html.

The GOOD NEWS is that having the occasional treat of cake and coffee or the odd soft drink once in a while isn’t going to result in serious problems. Your Granny’s old saying of, “Everything in moderation” still rings true; except of course we now know that no alcohol is the safest bet for a healthy baby.
