foods to avoid when pregnant

What you eat during a pregnancy will impact your health as well as your baby’s health. If you follow a healthy diet, you will have a healthy pregnancy, and your baby will develop properly.

So, the Feeding (a nutrition plan) for Pregnant Women should provide a nutritious Food that can satisfy the needs of a mother and a child.

This allows a woman to avoid Weight Gain.

During a pregnancy the need for Calories and Vitamins increases, but if you are well-informed and if you are careful about what you eat, you'll enjoy these 9 months.

Food quality is more important than quantity, to your Metabolism Function Optimally, and to preserve your health and beauty. Being overweight during a pregnancy causes several complications, but it can be avoided if you follow some basic rules.

Below we have compiled a full list of foods that you should avoid during pregnancy.

List of foods you should avoid during pregnancy

pregnancy


1. Alcohol:
Although technically not a food, it is really important to avoid because not only can it cause Foetal Alcohol Syndrome, but emerging research has linked alcohol to increased anxiety levels in babies. Also, a many scientific studies have demonstrated the harmful effects of Alcohol during pregnancy.

2. Sushi:
Raw fish can contain bacteria or microbes, which may lead to food poisoning.

3. Smoked Meat: 
There is the risk of harmful bacteria listeria, which is located in dried and smoked meat. The meat must cook or bake.

4. Soft cheeses made from unpasteurized milk: 
Soft cheeses may contain bacteria. Hard cheeses are safer.

5. ham:
It's a common sandwich filler because it's quick and easy, but it has a high listeria risk, and it's not all that rich in nutrition anyway.
Replace it with tinned tuna.

6. salami:
In addition to having a high listeria risk, salami is high in saturated fat.
So, give it a miss.

7. Raw meat:
I love sashimi and beef carpaccio, but the listeria risk is too high during pregnancy.
Once you've given birth, you can eat these again.

8. pate:
Pate is high in vitamin A which can cause toxicity during pregnancy.
It's also another high listeria risk, so even though it is yummy, wait until you're holding your little one in your arms.

9. chilled prawns:
Now this is another of my favourite foods too.
Prawns are also rich in nutrition, particularly protein and omega 3, but they are a listeria risk, so if you're going to eat them, all you have to do is make sure you serve them steaming hot.

10. chicken stuffing:
If you want to eat chicken stuffing, you'll need to make sure that it's
cooked completely separately and served hot.

11. Camembert:
To eat Camembert, ensure that it's cooked to over 75 degrees Celsius (which is 170 degrees Fahrenheit) and eat it immediately.
But, be careful not to burn your tongue!
Unfortunately brie and blue vein cheeses are also on the no-go zone.

12. Bocconcini:
Although slightly higher in kilojoules, I'd recommend swapping bocconcini for Parmesan.
Because it's a much safer option during pregnancy.
The next cheese is ricotta.
Here you can replace ricotta with cottage cheese.
It still has some risk, but it's not nearly as high as ricotta.
Just make sure that you eat it within two days of opening the pack.

13. soft serve ice cream:

Instead of indulging in a soft serve ice cream, treat yourself
to a delicious, creamy yoghurt instead.

14. Mayonnaise:
Both mayonnaise and its cousin aioli contain raw eggs which have a high risk of bacteria, so avoid them during pregnancy.

15. egg yolk:
Which brings me to undercooked eggs.
Although a runny egg yolk can be delicious, it can also be a breeding ground for the bacteria, salmonella which can be harmful to your unborn baby.
To reduce your risk, ensure that eggs are well cooked during your pregnancy.

16. Alfalfa sprouts and mung beans:
Basically all sprouts should also be avoided during pregnancy.

17. Unwashed produce:
The surface of unwashed or unpeeled fruits and vegetables can be affected by unwanted bacteria, so during pregnancy it's safest to give them a quick wash before consuming. And make sure to store them in the fridge.

18.store bought fruit juice:
When fruit juice is sitting in the store for weeks on end, it gives bacteria the chance to grow.
It also decreases its nutritional content.
If you want fruit juice, squeeze your own and drink it immediately.

19. soft drinks and diet soft drinks: I've lumped these into one. Whether drinks are sweetened with sugar or alternative sweeteners, emerging research suggests that they can increase your Bubba's risk of weight issues and metabolic syndrome down the track, so stick to water or milk.

20. Foods containing excess sugar:
In general foods that are high in refined sugar such as chocolate, cakes and biscuits should be avoided during pregnancy as you need to be focusing on nutrient-rich foods instead.

21. Flake: Which is high in mercury.
If buying fish and chips, order fish such as barramundi or flathead instead of flake.

22. Herbal teas:
Herbal teas are medicinal which means that they can impact the health of you and your baby.
