You know that extra caution with physical activity is required when you’re pregnant, but there are some foods to avoid during pregnancy too.
Because your immune system and body is busy making a baby, you’re often more susceptible to conditions that you aren’t under other circumstances.
That’s why it’s important to pay close attention to your diet during pregnancy, so your baby grows healthy and safe.
Check out these foods to avoid during pregnancy and you’ll be set the whole time you’re eating for two.
1. Undercooked Meat
I’m with you – I like my steak pink, but that’s not a safe option if you’re pregnant.
Undercooked meats could be contaminated with salmonella or toxoplasmosis, both of which are dangerous to a growing fetus and getting sick from these could compromise your pregnancy.
The same goes for chicken, smoked fish, sushi and pork too, so put this on your list of foods to avoid during pregnancy.
