OATS Fluctuating blood-sugar levels can cause dizziness, especially in the first trimester. Start the day with a steaming bowl of oats to help regulate your blood-glucose levels. MILK Trouble sleeping? A mug of warm milk half an hour before bed could help improve your snooze. Dairy contains tryptophan, an amino acid which helps increase levels of melatonin, the sleep-inducing hormone. Choose semi-skimmed milk over full fat, as it also contains more calcium and protein. SALMON Achy back? Omega-3 fatty acids found in salmon could help relieve back pain by calming inflammation in your blood vessels and nerves. Aim to eat the oily fish twice a week to keep levels topped up and keep back aches in check.
