Put flame out 1st...: Just kidding. There isn't any harm in eating this food while pregnant. However, pregnancy is an excellent time to learn about how to eat better, overall. For you and the baby. Start by eating real food (and not junk like this. Lots of fruits and veggies and quality meats, dairy, and eggs. Real food. Good balance. Healthy mom. Healthy baby. Good luck.
