Maintaining Motivation for Healthy Eating as a New Mum

healthy mum

Staying motivated to eat healthy as a new mum can be a challenge, given the demands of motherhood. 


However, maintaining a nutritious diet is essential for both your own well-being and providing the best nutrition for your baby, as well as achieving weight loss goals. 


Here are some strategies to help you stay motivated.

🎯 Realistic Goals

 Start small and build from there. You don't have to overhaul your diet overnight.Begin by making a few healthier choices each day. For example, start your morning with a nutritious In Shape Mummy Health Shake.

🍽️ Meal Prep

As a new mum, you likely don't have much time to cook elaborate meals. Plan your meals and snacks in advance, and prepare healthy options that are easy to grab when you're busy.

 For those days when time is scarce, reach for the convenient and delicious In-Shape Mummy Health Shake. It comes in irresistible flavors like chocolate brownie, caramel fudge, and vanilla, making healthy eating a delightful experience.

👶 Your Baby’s Nutrition

If you're breastfeeding, remember that your baby is getting nutrients from your diet. Use this as motivation to eat well for their sake as well as yours. 

🤝 Find Support

Don't go it alone. Share your goals with friends or family and seek the company of fellow new mums.

🧠 Educate Yourself

Learn about the benefits of a healthy diet. Understanding how good nutrition impacts your energy levels, mood, and overall well-being can be a powerful motivator

🍏 Smart Snacking

 Keep wholesome snacks at arm's reach - fruits, veggies, yogurt, and nuts. And when you're craving a quick sweet treat, check out our In Shape Mummy’s Chocolate Brownie Breastfeeding Boost Bars.

💧 Stay Hydrated

Sometimes, thirst can be mistaken for hunger. Drinking enough water throughout the day can help control cravings and ensure you stay well-hydrated

🍫 Savor Treats

It's okay to indulge occasionally. Depriving yourself of your favourite foods can lead to binge eating. Enjoy your cravings in moderation to stay on track.  Aim to be healthy for 90% of the time.

🍽️ Mix It Up

Don't get stuck in a food rut. Explore new recipes and ingredients to keep your meals exciting and appetising. Keep recipes simple to make it easier for yourself.

⏰ Time-Saving

As a new mum, time can be a precious commodity. Look for time-saving solutions like slow cookers or one-pot meals to make healthy eating more manageable.  Eat leftovers for lunch or dinner the next day. And don't forget the In-Shape Mummy Health Shake – your nutritious fast track.

Remember that it's okay to have slip-ups from time to time. What's essential is that you get back on track and stay committed to your health and well-being. Being a healthy mum sets a fantastic example for your child and ensures you're in the best possible shape to care for them. 

And with the In-Shape Mummy Health Shake, you can enjoy the journey while keeping things simple and delicious. 💪💕

"I'm loving it so far.. I'm already down from in weight and I feel great :)  Not exaggerating when I say this is the best purchase I ever made .. can't wait to get to my first mini goal of 65kgs then set my new goal of 60kgs :) .. so far it's been life changing, thank you so much!! It has literally boosted my milk supply. I used to pump 160mls and now I average 240mls .. I've never been able to get that."

"I've lost 35 kgs thanks to the In Shape Mummy Health Shakes. 110 kgs to 75 kgs! Juggling two little boys under 2 years old doesn't leave much time for healthy choices for Mummy and the In Shape Mummy Health Shake is such an easy solution to get all the goodness I need to keep going! My older son is 20 months and I didn't get the chance to lose the weight gained whilst carrying him before I was pregnant again with baby #2. I easily gained 40kgs across the two pregnancies and no thanks to terrible pelvic pain in pregnancy #2 wasn't able to keep active. Now that my second son is here and the pelvic pain has gone I have stuck to replacing breakfast with my shake and walking every morning for the duration of the morning sleep. Some days I will do a second shorter walk during his nap. I'm still able to enjoy yummy healthy foods and definitely do not feel like I'm going without. I no longer crave sugary foods as the shake sets me up for the day with its magical satisfying ingredients! The shake has become even more of a must since returning to work! If I thought I was busy before, life just got a whole lot busier! Now that I've lost the weight, I have more energy, zero aches and pains and have a better mood. I tell all my friends about In Shape Mummy because easy weight loss doesn't need to be a secret! Xx"

"I discovered In Shape Mummy Health Shakes not long after my second baby was born. He has an intolerance to dairy so I was looking to find something that was safe for breastfeeding, and also vegan friendly. I have recently started a detox program with the help of a naturopath. She was so impressed with the ingredients that she has encouraged me to continue having it! In Shape Mummy has not only helped me lose the 26 kgs I put on in pregnancy, but it’s helped me nourish my body when I’ve been time poor and sleep deprived. It’s the only shake that I actually enjoy the taste of! My breakfast everyday includes ice, almond milk, water, a banana and my In Shape Mummy (my current fave is the caramel fudge!). At 11 months postpartum I feel great! And my breastfeeding journey is still going strong - my milk is in perfect supply for what Bub needs. I cannot recommend In Shape Mummy Health Shakes more highly!”

"I have lost over 30kg with In Shape Mummy Health Shakes, exercise and a complete diet change. ⁠⁠ I started at size 22 and am a loose size 12 at the moment… and nearly a 10! ⁠I feel so much better! With my injuries in my spine, pelvis and knee my weight loss has been the best thing for my pain. ⁠
7-8 months ago I couldn’t have even imagined I could drop this much weight! The change in my life has been insane! ⁠ My advice to other mums is “stick with it and don’t give up!” ⁠ Thanks so very much for your In Shape Mummy Health Shakes. They are the best thing for mums on the go and while breastfeeding as well. Words can not express how grateful I am with my weight loss. I couldn’t of started this without your shakes. My life is forever changed." ⁠
