Calling all pregnant mums in the first, second, third, and even fourth trimester (post-partum!) – we’ve got a golden opportunity for you to trial the popular Optivance Mummy Smoothie. Designed to give you your daily dose of goodness in an easy to make, easy to digest and easy to drink with just one hand smoothie!
We’re looking for 20 Mum Central mums to join us in this Australia-wide trial. If you are pregnant (any trimester) or recently given birth, then we’d love to hear from you!
But first, let’s hear a little bit about Optivance and their popular Mummy Smoothies for pre-conception, pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Developed by a nutritionist who’s also a mum
Okay, so we all know how important it is to eat well and ensure we are getting the right vitamins and minerals in our bodies during pregnancy and postpartum. But finding the time to shop, plan, prep, cook, then clean up from three+ meals a day can be tricky. And exhausting! Especially when you’re either growing a child or have a newborn attached to your boob for the majority of your day.
Kristy Litis is just one of the countless mums out there who know all too well about the stresses that come with pregnancy and postpartum nutrition.
Kristy also happens to be a nutritionist. She decided to do something about it and led the development of the Optivance Mummy Smoothie range. Designed to help expecting and new mums get a daily dose of goodness that tastes delicious, it’ll also keep you going through the many highs and lows of both pregnancy and postpartum.
Get to know the range
There are two different smoothies in the Opvitance range – a preconception & pregnancy smoothie and a post-partum & breastfeeding smoothie. And we’re looking for readers to trial BOTH options.
1. Mummy Smoothie for Pre-Conception and Pregnancy
Many expecting mums are so nervous about what to eat, what not to eat, and whether they are eating enough, especially if they can hardly stomach anything.
Even if you manage to eat nothing but a soggy salad roll and a pack of M&Ms for lunch, you don’t have to get the mum guilts over it. Their smoothie range will fill out any gaps in your nutritional intake.
Optivance’s Mummy Smoothie for pre-conception & pregnancy is a supplement that provides the nutrition required to support your own health and the safe development of your baby in an enjoyable daily smoothie.
These pregnancy smoothies offer the peace of mind you’re giving bub everything they need, even if you aren’t eating that great right now.
No need to take a daily tablet!
Want to hear something even better? The Mummy Smoothie for pregnancy replaces the need to take a traditional prenatal tablet or capsule – which is great news for those who have trouble swallowing a tablet every morning, or find that they make them feel a bit queasy.
Each Mummy Smoothie for Pre-Conception and Pregnancy serving provides you with:
- 100% of your recommended daily intake of Iodine
- 100% of your recommended daily intake of Calcium L-Methylfolate. This is the bioavailable form of folic acid which ensures the risk of fetal neural tube defects are minimised
- Vitamin C and D
- A good source of Vitamin E, Iron, Zinc, Selenium and protein
- 4g boost of collagen
- 5 billion colony forming probiotics
- 200mg of DHA
2. The Mummy Smoothie for breastfeeding
Their Mummy Smoothie for breastfeeding is formulated for breastfeeding mums and is designed to provide you with a daily dose of energy and nutrients that will keep you going through the long days and even longer sleepless nights. It’s also designed to help with the healing process of birth and will ensure you get your daily vitamin and mineral intake.
Trust us, we understand how tricky it is to keep a balanced diet during those postpartum days and it’s the last thing any new mum needs to worry about. The Optivance team has designed their breastfeeding smoothie to support your body during the postpartum process.
Each Mummy Smoothie for Breastfeeding Mums serving provides you with:
- 21 vitamins and minerals (including 100% of your daily vitamin B, D and iron requirements)
- A good source of protein
- 4g boost of collagen
- 5 billion probiotics
- 200mg of DHA
- Galactagogues (i.e. fennel and fenugreek) to support milk supply
Blend. Drink. Get a daily dose of what both you and your baby need.
Each smoothie has been carefully researched and developed and complies with all Australian and New Zealand Food Standards.
And want to hear something else? Each serving comes in a single sachet so all you have to do is pour it into a blender, add some fruit (to create your desired flavour!) and then add either milk or water. You can also add extras like a tbsp of peanut butter or honey – guaranteed to get your taste buds dancing!
Another great thing about their smoothie range is that the flavour is enjoyable – it’s mild enough to provide a perfect base for whatever cravings you’re having on the day. But we’ll let you be the judge of that when you test it out for yourself! Frozen mango for the win!
You can find out more about the Optivance Mummy Smoothie range, which starts at $42 for a 14-single-serve pack of sachets, at their website. See stocklists here.
