In today’s episode we have our beautiful dietician renee back to bust some myths and share some facts around food safety during pregnancy and infancy.
Renee is a clinical dietitian and nutritionist specialising in pregnancy, postpartum and childhood nutrition. She has a strong research focus (and tendencies to nerd out with Kate) and many years of experience – first in a paediatric feeding clinic, and now in private practice specialising in pregnancy nutrition and gestational diabetes.
Renee is also the author of a wonderful book ‘Nurture the Seed’ – a nutrition and recipe book that guides women through their pregnancy and beyond. Most importantly, she is a mother of two beautiful children, Norah and Freddie and an all round wonderful human.
In this podcast we attempt to rapid fire through some of the common foods that pregnant women are told to avoid as well as how to make certain foods safer for infants including…
Eggs (can we still eat them poached?!)
Tahini and hummus
Sushi and raw fish
Sprouts and salad
and so much more!
You can connect with Renee on Instagram as well as seeing her face on the Boob to Food Instagram from time to time. And if you want to get your hands on a copy her incredible book (which we highly recommend you do!) you can purchase it HERE.
