If you are pregnant, you may not have to give up caffeine, but you may want to cut down its consumption. The common sources of caffeine are coffee, tea, chocolate an cola. According to the NSW food authority, pregnant women should not consume more than 200mg caffeine a day*. This is equivalent to four cups of medium-strength tea or 3 cups of instant coffee or four cups of hot chocolate.
