Is It Safe To Eat Foods With Msg While Pregnant
When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more
Less MSG, better:
I don't believe there is a big risk of msg in regard to pregnancy, but generally the less chemicals you put in your body the better especially when you are in early pregnancy. It is regarded as safe by the fda, but I would minimize consumption, especially during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.
Good luck and congratulations! ...Read more
Am 16 weeks pregnant and I love chineese food. Is it ok to have it once in a while? Will the MSG in chineese food affect baby development?
I think you're fine: The better Chinese restaurants do not add this flavor enhancer. Monosodium glutamate is the sodium salt of one of the most common building blocks of your own body, and the "pop" notion that it is horrible for you has resisted scientific demonstration. Congratulations on your pregnancy; this would be a great time to generally eat well and manage your weight. Best wishes. ...Read more
Yes: Decreasing the amount of harmful chemicals and pesticides during pregnancy is a good idea, however some foods are not exposed to the same level of chemicals as others. Those without thick a protective outer cover are more susceptible during the growing process and therefore require more chemicals and pesticides e.g. Blueberries, strawberries.

Is eating the Greek food Saganaki (fried Kasseri Cheese) safe to eat during pregnancy? I have read it's unpasteurized.
Mixed signals, here: As I imagine you have discovered, this question is a conundrum. General pregnancy advice is to avoid soft, unpasteurized cheeses in pregnancy. While Kasseri is unpasteurized, it is hard and there are many anecdotal reports about eating it safely in pregnancy. The CDC does not include kasseri in its list of cheese to avoid when pregnant:queso fresco/blanco/panela; brie; Camembert; blue-veined; feta ...Read more

Sure, but...: Eating omega-3-rich proteins like low-mercury fish is very healthy for pregnant women, but make sure wild salmon is well cooked (at risk of undesired parasitic infections like anisakis worms). ...Read more
Raw fish?: A pregnant woman "can" eat sushi, but it is safer to eat other foods instead of sushi. One reason is the mercury in fish. A person who eats more than 2 servings of fish a week may be taking in too much mercury. A second reason is that sushi often has uncooked seafood in it. Uncooked seafood can contain live viruses, bacteria, and parasites; but cooking the food usually kills those things. ...Read more

Is it safe to eat squid ink pasta/squid ink paella during pregnancy? Currently 5 months pregnant.
Yes: Yes, it is probably ok. As you probably have seen, the biggest concern with fish is that there may be high levels of mercury, which can potentially be harmful. It may be helpful to check with your local food agency because mercury levels in fish are rated, for example albacore tuna and swordfish from the Gulf of Mexico are rated at higher mercury levels. Depends on where the fish comes from. ...Read more

Is it safe to eat homemade egg fried rice during pregnancy? I made it fresh & piping hot thoroughly cooked with a little soy sauce & veggies? 35wks preg
Yes, very safe:
There is a very small risk of salmonella (a bacteria) from undercooked eggs but cooking thoroughly eliminates that risk. Eggs are one of the healthiest foods to eat, esp. In pregnancy, but I strongly advise choosing organic/pastured eggs when possible.
