Caffeine, artificial sweeteners, herbal supplements, alcohol and particular foods to avoid. I love coffee more than any other food product. Organic French roast with a dash of milk is absolutely delicious and the perfect way to start my mornings. However, caffeine crosses the placenta and affects your baby’s heart rate and breathing. Also, caffeine interferes with your body’s ability to absorb iron. So do not take your iron supplement when and if you are enjoying your coffee or other caffeinated beverages. I recommend that you limit your daily cups of caffeine to cups of brood coffee. This will equal approximately 200 mg of caffeine. When I was pregnant, I made my coffee by taking one scoop of regular grinned coffee and 2 scoops decaf. This way, I knew that I was to not exceeding 200 mg of caffeine a day yet could enjoy multiple cups of coffee. Have you ever considered how much caffeine is in a cup of coffee? 80 ounces of brood coffee as an average 85 mg of caffeine. The same size of instant café typically it is 75. A decaffeinated cup of coffee has three and own average of 1 ounce, contains 40 mg. An 80 ounce cup of tea has 40 mg of caffeine and own average, the same size of instant tea contains 25 mg. Lastly is the caffeine content found in chocolate, a 1 ounce piece of dark chocolate has 20 mg while milk chocolate has 6 mg of caffeine. Chocolate flavored syrup has 4 mg in one fluid ounce. There are quite a few caffeinated food products that I did not mention. If that energy drink you cope down time multiple times a day leaves anxious and shaky, you need to cope back and make to switch to chocolate milk.
