Finesseur Underscores The Importance Of Controlled Food Portions Especially For Pregnant Women
New guidelines regarding fish consumption have recently been released by the Food and Drug Administration. Kitchenware company Finesseur highlights the value of measuring food portions to achieve essential health benefits.
There are many resources that can be used to make sure that pregnancy is as problem-free as possible. To maintain a healthy diet, ideal serving portions of different food groups are explicitly specified.
Finesseur spokesperson Allison Montgomery says: "Finesseur has been very vocal about its stand on the importance of proper monitoring of food portions to maintain a balanced diet. Although standards may differ based on the source, the fact remains that managing food portions can mean the difference between staying healthy and getting sick. This is one of the primary reasons the digital kitchen scale is our initial product offering."
For more than a decade, FDA guidelines limited consumption of fish by pregnant women to a maximum of 2 servings per week to avoid concerns on mercury contamination. Unfortunately, instead of limiting consumption, some women opted for no consumption at all.
Recent research shows that the advantages gained by eating fish outweigh the perceived risk. Consequently, FDA guidelines are being modified and the current recommendation for pregnant women is to consume a minimum of 2 Ė 3 servings of fish (with low mercury content) per week.
"The essence of having a measurement tool cannot be emphasized enough. How else can you be certain that you are eating the right amount of food? Being pregnant is hard enough, physically, mentally, and emotionally. Surely, anything that can help in whatever little way to ensure that you deliver a healthy baby is well worth the investment," adds Ms. Montgomery.
The Finesseur kitchen scale is currently available on Amazon and Finesseurís online store.
Finesseur brings fashion design, precise engineering, and top quality craftsmanship together in American kitchens. Finesseur believes kitchen tools should be not only functional, but also inspirational.
