For most women, yes, it is safe to drink soda water during pregnancy. Like all processed foods and drinks, moderation is key. Soda water is a carbonated water, commonly made by pumping dissolved carbon dioxide as a gas into water, but it can also occur in nature from special natural springs. While plain tap water is most appropriate, a plain un-sweetened soda water can be a much healthier choice than other sweetened carbonated drinks.

Are Fermented Foods Safe During Pregnancy?
Fermented foods such as yoghurt, probiotic drinks, sauerkraut, kefir, kimchi and kombucha have been growing in popularity for the role they play in providing ‘friendly’ bacteria to the gut. However for homemade fermented foods there is the concern during pregnancy that while it increases good bacteria, there’s always a risk that bad bacteria will grow in these products. Commercially available fermented products are the best choice, and if you're concerned, speak to your healthcare professional for advice.

Is Too Much Spicy Food Bad During Pregnancy?
Spices and spicy food don’t pose any food-related health risks to you or your unborn child. If, however spicy foods are not your usual food choice, it may create the same discomforts as it does to anyone who eats them – burning sensations and tummy upsets – which may not be worth it if added to your usual pregnancy discomforts. If it’s a craving your having, start slow and monitor for unwanted symptoms.
We believe that breastfeeding is the ideal nutritional start for babies.
During pregnancy and after delivery, a mother’s diet should contain sufficient key nutrients. Professional guidance can be sought on diet and the preparation for and maintenance of breastfeeding. A decision not to breastfeed, or to introduce partial bottle feeding, could reduce the supply of breast milk. Once reduced, it is difficult to re-establish. Infant formula should be prepared and used as directed. Unnecessary or improper use may present a health hazard. Social and financial implications, including the cost of providing formula until 12 months of age, should be considered when choosing how to feed infants.
We recognise that breastfeeding is not always an option for some parents. No matter your feeding choice, Nestlé Baby & me is here to share the latest information to help you feel supported and confident on your parenthood journey.
As every child’s development is different, be sure to consult with your health care professional for individual advice about feeding your baby.
