Foods: Anything you are allergic to of course, but most foods are relatively safe. The main thing is to stay aware from raw or improperly cooked food, improperly washed items and restrict your intake of high mercury containing fish (list of these available online). Look online for a healthy pregnancy diet to make good choices.
