Welcome from HiPP's Nutritionist, Helen
I am Helen, HiPP Organic’s resident nutritionist and I’ll be filling this blog up nicely with tips on what to eat while pregnant, how to keep eating happily and healthily once your baby is born, and then once your baby is ready to start weaning I’ll be giving lots more ideas and advice on healthy foods to give them.
I’d love to hear your suggestions and any questions about nutrition or feeding so feel free to email me or post any comments on this blog and I’ll do my best to reply.
But just to get the ball rolling, in a questionnaire we recently sent out to our HiPP babyclub members we asked the question ‘What are you doing/did you do to alleviate morning sickness?’. Over a quarter of the respondents said a small snack helped, whilst another quarter found drinking water made them feel better. Others found drinking ginger or mint tea, taking in some fresh air or lying down made them feel less nauseous. Have you got any other ideas to share? .....I’d love to know.
Best wishes! Helen
