1. Pre-Packaged Salads

We might consider it so much easier and faster to grab some packaged salad to save time and especially because let’s just admit it, the taste is heaven-ish.

But you do know that re-creating the taste is not impossible at home right?

The pre-packaged salads might be contaminated. Even if you think they are not contaminated, then they might even be containing numerous preservatives which can be dangerous for the body of the baby and yes, for the mother too.

2. Caffeine Consumption


High level of caffeine tends to increase the heartbeat. Caffeine can even increase the risks of miscarriages.

The baby’s weight is seen to be much reduced in women who drink caffeine. Decaffeinated teas and coffees are present for people who think they cannot skip the habit.

Moreover, you do not have to completely skip caffeine so don’t be worried about it. You just have to lower the consumption.

3. Sushi

Pregnant women are usually advised not to eat chilled sea-food. Chilled seafood has a higher amount of listeria contamination which can be super dangerous for the body.

If you are a huge sushi fan and are craving it, then eat fully cooked one which is lesser dangerous for the body.

4. Milk that is Unpasteurized

Cold Milk

Raw milk must be boiled to kill off any kind of bacteria that might be present in the milk. Do not drink unpasteurized milk.

And yes, the consumption of soft ice-creams have a greater risk of being contaminated with listeria.

Fishes are for sure, beneficial for the body as they contain omega-3 fatty acids but some fishes and specifically the ones rich in mercury might prove to be toxic for the body.

Consult your dietician or health instructor who can guide you better with what fish to eat.

6. Eggs


No, we do not mean the properly cooked eggs, but when we say eggs, we mean the ones that are raw or are partially cooked. Make sure the eggs are properly cooked.

This is because uncooked or partially cooked eggs might cause problems such as food poisoning.

Also, do not use cracked or rotten eggs. Be especially careful about it.
