Food no no's when pregnant???

Postby court » Fri Aug 14, 2009 10:24 am

Hi guys -
I have been asked by a friend to find out what the big no no's are when pregnant food / drink wise?
She is a red bull drinker I assume that is a no no... can anyone else give me tips or link me to a reliable site I said I would get some info together for her as she cant get on the internet at work! Thanks so much :D

Also soft serve icecream is another one to avoid.

Maybe slightly off topic, but make sure she has folate tablets each day. Folate tablets are essential in the first trimester.

Red bull and any other energy drinks are a HUGE no no. Avoive Maccas, KFC, etc, for the simple reason that you don't know exactly what or how the food has been prepared (no matter what the ads say, lol) or how long they've been sittin there. Pre cooked chickens from Woolies etc are no-nos for the same reasons (if she's anything like my sister, buy a pre-marinaded chicken and cook it yourself). Raw foods are bad, and ALL meat must be cooked properly, eg. no medium, medium/rare steaks. Well done are the best way to go.

Lots of health, FRESH food. Your friend's doctor/midwife should be able to shed some more light on it. Or borrow some books from the library (but not "Up The Duff" it crap).

Hope that's helped :D

thanks everyone I have passed it all along! Hopefully she listens but she is off the red bull and coffee which is a HUGE step!
