Support expectant mothers to have festive alternatives!

When a pregnant mother drinks…so does her unborn baby. During this upcoming holiday season, your FASD Community of Practice team would ask that you support any expectant mothers at holiday gatherings by offering them festive alternatives in lieu of alcoholic beverages.

Here is a sample of a yummy festive mocktail:

Countdown Mocktail:

  • ½ oz passion fruit juice
  • ½ oz cranberry juice
  • ½ fresh strawberry
  • 4 oz chilled sparkling water

To a flute, add passion fruit juice, cranberry juice and strawberry half. Top with sparkling water (LCBO)

 

Many mocktail recipes can be found on the Internet, recipe books, at the LCBO and on Pinterest. As well most cocktail drinks can be modified without the use of alcohol

Here is a great promotional video that the LCBO has put out to spread the word that NO amount of alcohol is safe while pregnant.
