Snacking tips

When you are pregnant, you may find your appetite increases. It is recommended to eat little and often, especially if you need to manage nausea during this time. Some practical tips to increase your intake of nutrients and fluids include:

  • Bring your own

    If you are working pack a chilled lunchbox with healthy options like a sandwich, carrot sticks and a piece of fruit.
