It’s important to eat well-balanced meals and take prenatal vitamins during your pregnancy so that your developing baby can get all the essential nutrients it needs to grow strong.  You should consume about 300 additional calories a day during this time.

@LordsGirl CIGARETTES is not a food, but still you are right, cigarettes are very harmful to a pregnant woman...

Thanks for the advice Maria. I must admit I wasn't aware of some of the risks from fish products. I always assumed all fish types would be healthy because they were high in protein and fish oils.

I really think this article was really useful! I've spoken to many expectant mothers and not many know about what types of fish are ok.

I wasn't too surprised about the fish information, but it did spark my curiosity about exactly what kinds of foods I should be staying away from. After searching around on the Internet for a good day or so, I did find some really helpful sites that gave me some great nutritional information.

I think the one food that I was surprised about not being able to eat while pregnant was lunch meat. I am a total sandwich person and would eat one for every meal if I could. But really, the sacrifice is totally worth it.

Fish products can be very high in mercury which is a known neurotoxin. The higher the fish is upon the food chain the more mercury content it may have. I have been using Nordic Natural fish products which I believe to be the most pure on the market. Whole Foods (whole wallet) carries them but I have found a better resource online at momEmineral dot com. It's a vitamin retailer online that focuses on women's health and they only carry the best products. Their site is super cute and really professional. I enjoy supporting other women owned businesses!!

PS. Carlson Labs also makes really good fish oil products. Omega fatty acids, folinic acid, and a good multi vitamin's are what my doctor recommended and my nails, hair, and skin are glowing.

This article is so useful! I literally just joined this website, and the nutrition questions were one of my biggest concerns. Thanks so much..although I must say a lot of my favourite things are on the "do not" list. Goodbye feta.

Thanks for sharing such a informative blog on foods to be avoided during pregnancy. Though many of us may be well aware of the above restrictions but they don't seems to get bothered with their outcome & continues to lead a lifestyle as they are used to, hence it is necessary for them to say goodbye to this food habit during initial period or advance period.
