Susie Burrell FAQs: Foods to Cut Down on During Pregnancy

foods-to-cut-down-on-during

Pregnancy can be a challenging time when it comes to your nutrition. Not only are there many foods that you simply do not feel like eating—but there are also foods we should avoid both for the health of the mum-to-be and unborn baby.

So, if you are newly pregnant, here are the foods you need to be careful with, or even avoid completely.

Can I drink coffee?

Some pregnant women avoid coffee completely, others may limit their intake and many do not feel like it at all. However, the key concern with drinking coffee during pregnancy is that coffee is a stimulant for your body.

As is the case with many foods and drinks, a small amount is unlikely to be an issue, but significant amounts of coffee are not advised. A controlled caffeine intake during pregnancy is defined as one cup of coffee, along with a cup or two of tea each day. And, if you want to be particularly strict you can swap to decaf coffee and tea.

If you’re unsure or concerned, speak to your doctor about having your daily brew.

Why can’t I eat raw fish?

There is always a risk when eating raw fish, such as sashimi, that it may contains listeria. As listeria can cause miscarriages it is advised that pregnant women avoid all raw fish. In addition to this, some fish (including tuna) contain high levels of mercury, so limiting your intake of canned tuna to just one or two occasions each week is advisable when you are pregnant.

What salad can I have when pregnant?

While homemade fresh salad is no issue, caution should be taken with premade salads from supermarkets and food courts. These salads often sit out in unregulated temperatures for hours at a time. And, raw produce like this will have the risk of carrying listeria and is best avoided during pregnancy.

Why are soft cheeses and raw milk harmful during pregnancy?

Any cheese that is unpasteurised (or uncooked) is a high-risk food for pregnant women. Such products including raw milk, goat’s cheese and soft cheese, like Brie, can contain bacteria that can be harmful during pregnancy. For this reason, these products are best avoided completely during pregnancy.

Can I eat leftover food?

For many of us, leftovers are enjoyed up to two or three days after meal preparation. During pregnancy, you need to be careful as the internal temperatures of these foods can cause growth of harmful bacteria. For this reason, avoid reheating premade meal options altogether, especially when they are takeaway meals that have previously been reheated.

Susie Burrell’s advice is general in nature. For personal healthcare advice, please consult your healthcare professional for professional advice.

Important Notice to Parents and Guardians

  • The World Health Organisation recommends that breastfeeding is best for your baby.
  • Having a balanced diet when breastfeeding is also important. Infant Formulas should only be used after you’ve sought advice from a doctor or health practitioner.
  • A decision not to breastfeed can be difficult to reverse and introducing partial bottle feeding may reduce the supply of breast milk. It is also wise to consider the cost of infant formula.
  • If you use infant formula, all preparation and feeding instructions must be followed as per the manufacturer’s instructions. This is important for your baby’s health.
