Is it teething time for your little one?

 

Being pregnant means that you need to cut down and omit certain items from your diet, such as caffeine.

 

If that has left you in a bit of a sweat, thankfully, there are alternatives and some are even nicer than a cup of the black stuff.

Green tea

While it does have a little caffeine in it, it is significantly less than a cup of coffee, and if you use the same leaves for the whole day, you'll be cutting down massively.

 

However, drinking any kid of herbal tea should always be done in moderation and you should talk to your GP to make sure it is safe for you to do so, as some may advise against it.

 

Hot water and lemon

Sometimes it’s holding the warm mug that we really miss, so instead, opt for a cup of hot water and lemon.

 

It tastes really nice and while it's not got the same kick, it is a perfectly good substitute.

Decaf coffee

Decaf coffee contains tiny amounts of caffeine and a treat every now and then is OK.

 

But you should always consult your doctor if you're unsure.

 

Decaf tea

Tea already has lower quantities of caffeine so go for a decaffeinated tea instead of a coffee.

Eat fresh fruit

If it’s the energy boost that you really miss, stock up on fresh fruit.

 

It can give you a blood sugar boost to get you over that 3pm slump, and keep you going until bedtime.

 

Eat yoghurt

Another great way to get your energy boost is by getting your fill of yoghurts.

 

They are full of protein which will give you a much-needed boost in the morning.

Sparkling water

Keep a bottle of sparkling water or flavoured water close to hand – feeling fatigued can be a sign that you are dehydrated so make sure you keep your fluid intake up.

 

If you are craving a cup of coffee, reach for this instead.
