Alcohol and caffeine – choose water or decaf when you can. If you can’t live without your coffee, limit your intake to 200mg per day, which is about two espressos or 3-5 cups of tea. You should also avoid energy drinks.
Foods that may contain listeria – deli favourites such as soft cheese, pate, cold meats, pre-prepared salads, raw or smoked fish and raw eggs contain listeria and should be avoided.
The medium rare option – Ask for meat to be cooked all the way through to reduce the risk of bacteria-caused infection.
Fish – Aim for 2-3 serves of fish per week, but avoid types that contain high levels of mercury, including roughly (deep sea perch), catfish, flake (shark), swordfish and marlin.
