Food for Fertility, with Dietitian Melanie McGrice (@MelanieMcGrice)
Today's exert guest is Melanie McGrice, an advanced accredited practising dietitian with a special interest in fertility, pregnancy and infants.

In this podcast, Melanie and I start off by talking about what good nutrition for fertility means and why it’s so important, what foods improve the quality of our eggs, foods to avoid when we’re trying to conceive and we hear Melanie’s thoughts on seed cycling.
We then talk a little about infertility and other things besides nutrition our listeners should be aware of, why the health and nutrition of males matter as much as the females, supplements worth taking when trying to conceive, how to overcome morning sickness, foods to focus on when pregnant, whether protein powders are safe to take and how new mums can increase their milk supply.
Finally, Melanie shares her wisdom on solids for babies and tips that mums can use when it comes to label reading and baby food.
