Caffeine Content Of Some Foods And Drinks
I know most of us rely on caffeine to keep going and looking to get a cup of joe as soon as we start our day. However, we may need to lower our caffeine intake in some cases including pregnancy. Consuming high amounts of caffeine during conception is also found to have a negative effect on getting pregnant. Make sure to discuss this further with your healthcare provider if you are TTC.
Caffeine needs to be limited to 200 mg/day during pregnancy to avoid any side effects in our babies.
|Brewed coffee, 8 oz.||95 – 165 mg|
|Brewed coffee, decaf, 8 oz.||2 – 5 mg|
|Espresso, 1 oz.||47 – 75 mg|
|Latte, 8 oz.||63 – 126 mg|
|Dark chocolate 1.5 oz||30 - 40 mg|
|Milk Chocolate 1.5 oz||10 - 15 mg|
|Soft Drinks 12 oz||35 mg|
|Green Tea 6 oz||40 mg|
|Black Tea 6 oz||45 mg|
