In my opinion, when a woman is pregnant, everything that goes into her mouth gets shared with her growing baby.
Even though some type of foods may not hurt you, they may harm your baby. Therefore, there are some foods and drinks that are best avoided or limited because of the potential dangers they bear. To stay safe, one should reduce (i.e limit) these foods intake during pregnancy:
Uncooked or partly cooked meat
Any meat you eat should be cooked thoroughly, it should not have any blood coming out of it. Avoid meats like; Cold cuts, hot dogs, and other ready-to-eat meats. (You can safely eat these if they are heated to steaming and served hot) also avoid Pre-stuffed, fresh, turkey or chicken including rare cuts of meat and undercooked meat. If you want to eat cured meat you can freeze for 4 days at home before defrosting and eating.
Avoid Locally caught bluefish, pike, salmon, striped bass, trout, and walleye. Fish is a good source of many vitamins and minerals. If fish is part of your diet, you should aim to eat at least 2 portions of fish a week. You should know that oily fish helps your baby's nervous system to develop but too much could pose a threat.
Try to avoid foods that have raw egg in them, such as homemade mayonnaise or mousse, The safest eggs to eat are eggs with stamps on them. This is because they are less likely to have salmonella in them, which can cause food poisoning.
Milk and cheese
You should avoid unpasteurised (raw) milk and products made from it, which are sold in some farm and health food shops. These products can include cream, yoghurt, goat's and sheep's milk or dairy products. If you only have access to unpasteurised milk, boil it before using.
Undercooked ready meals
It is very important to follow the cooking instructions on the pack of any ready meals you eat. Also, check that the meal is steaming hot all the way through before you eat it because they contain chemicals and preservatives not safe for the baby.
