Eat at least 5 servings of fruit and vegetables per day
It sounds easy, but new mums can find it hard to eat their fill of healthy food. A serving could be two plums or kiwi fruit, a handful of sultanas or seven cherry tomatoes.

Fish like herring, pilchards, salmon and sardines are high in omega-3 fatty acids, which keep your heart healthy. Choose to steam, bake or grill fish over frying it.
Eat regularly and often for energy all day
Having set meal times and a plate full of healthy food will keep you going from dawn till dusk. Plan snacks, too, to eat during baby’s nap time.
