Foods to Avoid

Are you confused by food warnings in pregnancy? It's not as restrictive as you may think but there are a few things that have potential for harm so it's good to avoid them. Here is a good overview of cautions and foods to avoid altogether in pregnancy. Some things that cause minimal problems for adults can be more dangerous for children and developing babies so it's good to be careful. (You can also click the post title)

Included is information on meat, fish, cheese, hotdogs, liver, artificial sweeteners, sprouts, and more. Of course alcohol should be avoided and caffeine limited. Common sense prevails here - and besides, it's only nine months! Breastfeeding is even less restrictive than pregnancy when it comes to foods.
