What can not be eaten during pregnancy

So what products should be feared not to cloud the happy time of bearing a baby? What can not be eaten during pregnancy, so as not to risk health?

Cheese - soft (brie, camembert, feta), as well as cheese with mold and goat cheese. In the list of prohibited products for pregnant women, cheeses fall due to a special cooking technology: they are made on the basis of unpasteurized milk. And the absence of the process of pasteurization leads to the fact that the cheese can retain bacteria that can lead to infection, and, as a result, miscarriage or premature birth.

If the cheese is not allowed to eat on the basis of unpasteurized milk, then logically, under the ban and the milk itself - unpasteurized and unboiled. In such milk, infections that cause food poisoning are also very likely.

Poisoning, or worse - salmonellosis - you can "shlopotat, enjoying raw eggs. Therefore, you can not eat either eggs boiled soft-boiled, or fried eggs as a fried egg: the yolk and protein must be hardened when cooking. But quail eggs, to the pleasantness, can be eaten and raw: it is proved that salmonella does not "live" in them. But, in any case, you should not abuse the product - after all, eggs are classified as a fairly strong allergen.

"Salt" salmonella can also be in raw meat, because during pregnancy are unacceptable to eat all sorts of "steaks in Tartar", unrefined shish kebab or steaks, steaks with blood, half-baked liver. It is very desirable during pregnancy to refuse and from such meat products as ham, cold-smoked sausages - they may contain pathogenic bacteria, Listeriosis or toxoplasmosis. For the same reason, it is better to refuse pates (and, as meat, and vegetable, and fish).

Regarding fish: however useful this product is, in the case of pregnancy, it is forbidden to eat fish species containing an increased amount of mercury. This - tuna, perch, shark, swordfish, king mackerel, marlin. If there is an irresistible desire to taste such fish, then it can be eaten only in minimum quantities - not more than 100 g per week and necessarily in a thermally processed form. Better yet, of course, replace it with not only safe, but also useful sardines, herring, flounder, cod or salmon.

Continuing the theme of seafood: raw molluscs are forbidden during pregnancy as a possible source of pathogenic microorganisms that cause poisoning. A similar ban, and for the same reason - on land: picking up the helminth infection after using sushi, then it will be difficult and long to treat it later. I wanted to sushi well just "to the impossibility"? Then it is better to give preference to rolls with thermally processed products, and ideally - vegetarian sushi (for example, with cucumber).

Speaking about the fact that you can not eat during pregnancy, you can not ignore the products containing large amounts of dyes, flavors, flavor enhancers and other harmful nutritional supplements. Without fail it is necessary to refuse all chips, crackers, colored chewing gums and chewing sweets. Not recommended during pregnancy and fizzy products - not only because they contain dyes and flavors, but because of the presence of aspartame, an artificial sweetener, which has the ability to penetrate the placenta (also aspartame is found in so-called dietary products, for example, in breakfast cereals). And, of course, do not forget that a pregnant woman is very inclined to manifestations of heartburn, which makes itself felt as a consequence of the growing and squeezing internal organs (stomach and intestines as well) of the uterus. To minimize the risk of such an unpleasant phenomenon as heartburn, as well as prevent "overload" of the liver and gall bladder, it is worth to give up smoked, fried, fatty and sharp foods and dishes. And to avoid edema, as a result of a heavy burden on the kidneys (which during pregnancy and so work in a strengthened mode) - avoid marinades and pickles.
