Being with child is quite different from not being pregnant and it comes with the carrier having to make several changes to their lifestyle, especially their diet.
Many pregnant women have serious cravings for different foods while pregnant but some of these things can cause harm for their unborn child.
Popular online doctor, Olufunmilayo, recently took to his Twitter page to school expectant mothers on how their much-loved breakfast staple can cause harm for their baby.
According to the doctor, consuming too much bread and tea may be harmful to them because it can make it hard for the body to absorb iron.
He explained further that iron deficiency during pregnancy can cause premature delivery, lead to the child being tiny or the death of the child either before or after delivery.

In another post, the doctor explained that pregnancy already causes low blood levels for many women and that some of them have to be placed on iron tablets.
He then said that tea and coffee are already known for making it hard for the body to absorb iron and that taking the beverage with bread makes the impact worse.
The doctor advised that bread and tea consumption should be cut down during pregnancy.
