Healthy Eating

Having a new baby may take the focus away from your own nutrition and health, however it’s essential that you make eating and drinking a priority as it can help you to stay healthy and active, and ensure you are able to look after your baby.

Eating a varied well balanced diet is just as important in the weeks after your baby is born, as it was while you were pregnant.

If you are breastfeeding it’s important to eat a healthy, well-balanced diet including plenty of fluids (Water).

Having healthy snacks and taking a daily supplement of vitamin D can be of benefit. You may be entitled to free vitamin supplements and Healthy Start vouchers. For more information visit the Healthy Start or call 0845 607 6823.
