Avoid unhealthy food & drink

 

What not to eat during pregnancy © Bananastock
Everyone knows that drinking alcohol and smoking are big misdemeanors during pregnancy but there are also a number of other foods that I would recommend avoiding. Heer's my list of what not eat during pregnancy...

Foods to avoid during pregnancy:

•    Soft and blue veined cheeses such as camembert, brie and stilton (Cheddar, processed and cottage cheese is fine)

•    All types of pate

•    Some pre-packed salads including coleslaw and potato salad

•    Ready meals or reheated foods

•    Raw meat and poultry

•    Unpasteurized milk and untreated water

•    Foods with raw egg including mayonnaise, mousses and sauces.

•    Too much oily fish such as fresh tuna, mackerel, sardines and trout.  Avoid some fish completely including shark, swordfish and marlin.

•    Limiting the amount of caffeine you drink

•    Cutting down on foods with refined sugars like cakes and biscuits.
