Occasionally: As with all things in life, do everything in moderation. If a woman enjoys hot chips, having a few hot chips here and there won't cause problems in a pregnancy.

No: These are fine during pregnancy, but they might exacerbate a common problem called reflux disease. If they cause acid reflux, then consider other food choices!

A 21-year-old female asked:
Is it ok to eat really spicy chips when pregnant?

Yes: Studies have shown that spicy foods are in the mouth of the beholder. The sensation of spicy is due to an enzyme. This is a genetic thing. Spicy foods don't burn your stomach or affect the baby.
