As a new mum (or dad for that matter) it’s often very easy to forget about you and your needs.
Your daily goals are so focused on caring for your new bundle of joy – feeding, changing nappies and showering them with cuddles and affection that you forfeit your own health and wellbeing.
Taking a bath becomes a luxury as does getting more than two hours solid sleep a night and as for eating – well you’re lucky if you manage through a cup of tea let alone an entire meal before your little one is in need of something.
This week we are supporting PANDAS Foundation (Pre and Post Natal Depression Advice and Support) by helping to raise awareness of the importance of nutrition in early motherhood.
For many, becoming a new mum can trigger the start of many bad habits – skipping meals, eating junk food, sugar cravings and caffeine overloading. Longer term this can lead to weight problems, fluctuations in mood swings and sometimes mental illness.
And whilst, we all know that we should pay particular attention to our post natal diet when you’re sleep deprived and exhausted, finding the time is difficult and making the effort can be even harder.
That’s why here at Purition we think our products are a perfect fit for new mothers. Not only are our wholefood shakes really quick and easy to prepare (you can do them one handed if you’re really struggling) they are packed full of natural nutty goodness giving you lots of energy to manage your new life as a mum.
