We've been asked to find out the views on nutrition and pregnancy among pregnant Mumsnetters.

The survey is open to all UK Mumsnetters who are currently pregnant.

Everyone who completes the survey and adds their details at the end will be entered into a prize draw where one winner will get a £200 John Lewis voucher to spend on whatever you like!

Here's the link

Thanks and good luck.

PS: this survey has previously been sent to our MN research panel: if you have already done it please do not do it again!

If you're new to MN (or not-so-new) please do sign up to our research panel - lots of chances to win smile. Add your details here

Done. Don't know how helpful I was though! Never heard of eating berries to prevent allergies.

Dolallytats Tue 18-Jun-13 12:39:48

Done, but I hadn't heard about it either!! Also have IBS so have to be careful!!

It does say "Please note, the list below is of things that some people do but is not necessarily based on any official recommendations."

So I until there is solid evidence berries preventing allergies I wouldn't make any drastic changes to your diet if it's already balanced and healthy.

Hmm I live on a farm which grows strawberries and raspberries and am 32 weeks... my berry intake is probably more than most! (DD seems to have inherited a strong affection for berries too and would happily consume a pound at a sitting if we let her! - thankfully no allergies)

ChickenPieMama Tue 18-Jun-13 13:16:06

Done. I hadn't heard about the berries thing! Will give it some thought when my appetite comes back! Don't you just love morning/noon/night sickness! confused

pettyprudence Tue 18-Jun-13 13:27:41

Done (got my bfp this morning grin)

Newmum0113 Tue 18-Jun-13 17:16:55

Congratulations petty!!

Done it but ticked no to loads because it said specifically for the pregnancy. I have a pretty well balanced diet and I eat lots of fruit and fish anyway. I also eat the same quantity of chocolate.... I did say balanced!! wink !!

WeasleyWoo Tue 18-Jun-13 17:17:50 to research berries!

PipsWife Tue 18-Jun-13 19:34:09

5 wks.

Cookiepants Tue 18-Jun-13 19:40:40

Done. Now off to JL website to spend the (imaginary!) winnings grin

FobblyWoof Wed 19-Jun-13 15:11:19

Congratulations petty

Done the surgery, now really hungry and want some strawberries!

I did this, but please be aware that you have left no room for people to signal that one or more of their previous children has died. You have to give an age, or else pretend you never had them.

MinkyWinky Wed 19-Jun-13 15:57:08

Done, but I'm the same as newmum, I eat a relatively balanced diet anyway

LilacBreastedRoller Wed 19-Jun-13 15:58:18

Sorry, I didn't really mean to say that we should be able to signal that specifically. Just that it's upsetting when these forms have no wiggle room and make blithe assumptions about the ongoing shape of people's families.

Thanks LilacBreastedRoller - and we're sorry sad. We'll pass your comments on to our Insight team.

LilacBreastedRoller Wed 19-Jun-13 22:11:44

Thanks Helen. I don't think I explained myself very well here, it's not that i need a space to tell my story in a questionnaire about berries. It's just something to bear in mind when constructing questionnaires in general, as sadly there are lots of bereaved parents on MN (as I know you know).

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 20-Jun-13 10:35:39

Thanks for raising this point LilacBreastedRoller. Point duly noted by the surveys team here at MNHQ and we will try and tweak wording on future surveys. best, Ann

Done! But the allergies thing always bugs me, it seems like without concrete evidence a soon to be mum could be really worried over potentially nothing, and that to me is more dangerous to mum and baby than whether she had a punnet of blueberries!

lou1970 Thu 20-Jun-13 18:11:01

berries, eh? now I seem to remember being told that eating too much fruit means you run the risk of gestational diabetes. Luckily she didn't mention cake...

Bloody hell there is so much information about what you should and shouldn't eat, I felt dreadful as I skipped down the 'no' column of all the things I should apparently be avoiding.

LuckySocks13 Thu 20-Jun-13 21:34:15

Done smile

lovemybabyboy Sat 22-Jun-13 21:00:44

Done! smile
I have been eating frozen raspberries like there is no tomorrow throughout this Pregnancy but because I have been craving them! I never heard of the m preventing allergies either.
