There are some foods that should not be taken up during pregnancy because they may cause illness to you or harm your child. Be sure to check out the important facts about foods to avoid or take more during pregnancy.
Some types of cheese.
Do not take mature soft cheeses, such as berry and camembert, whether they are made from cow’s milk or goats. You should also avoid blue cheeses, such as:
• Danish blue cheese
• Roquefort cheese
This is because soft cheeses are less oxidized than hard cheeses and contain greater moisture, making them an ideal environment for harmful bacteria, such as Listeria, to grow in them.
Although hysterectomy is rare, it is important to take special precautions during pregnancy because even if you get mild illness, it can result in miscarriage, a dead fetus, or a severe illness for the new baby.
If you are pregnant and have signs of hysteria, ask for medical help immediately.
Solid cheeses safe to eat.
You can eat hard cheeses like cheddar, parmesan and stealthon, even if they are made from unpasteurized milk. They do not contain the same amount of water found in soft cheeses and thus have less potential for bacterial growth. Hard cheeses may contain Listeria, but the risk is less.
Sausage soft cheeses.
Many types of soft cheeses are good to eat but make sure they are made from pasteurized milk. Like:
• Cheese Quraish
• Mozzarella cheese
• White cheese
• Haloumi cheese
• Goat cheese
• Cheese processed as cheese hostages
Cooked soft cheeses.
Good cooking kills any bacterium in cheese, so it is a good choice of cooked soft cheeses, such as wild or camembert, and lightly cooked blue cheeses, such as rocfort or gorgonzola, or dishes that contain these types of cheeses.
It is important to ensure that the cheese is cooked well and reaches high heat during that process.
Avoid all types of paté, including vegetable pate, because it can contain Listeria bacteria.
Fresh or partially cooked eggs.
Make sure the eggs are cooked well until the white and yolks are hard. This will prevent the risk of food poisoning with salmonella. Salmonella poisoning is unlikely to harm your child, but it can cause a severe bout of diarrhea and vomiting.
Avoid foods that contain raw cooked eggs, such as home-made mayonnaise. If you want to eat dishes that contain raw or partially cooked eggs, consider using pasteurized eggs.
The meat is raw or not cooked well.
Cook all meat and poultry well so that it reaches a high temperature and there is no effect of redness or blood. You should give special attention to poultry, sausages and minced meat, including kebabs.
Avoid rare meat.
Brucellosis is an infection caused by a parasite that can be found in meat, soil, cat feces and untreated water. If you are pregnant, it can harm your baby, but it is important to remember that the toxoplasmosis during pregnancy is very rare.
Crocheting disease is often not accompanied by symptoms. But if you feel at risk, discuss it with your doctor, midwife or obstetrician. If you get it during pregnancy, the treatment of toxoplasmosis is available.
Treatment can reduce the risk of infection. When a child is infected, treatment can reduce the risk of harm.
Wash all surfaces and utensils well after preparing raw meat. It is also important to remember washing and drying your hands after touching or dealing with raw meat.
This will help you avoid the spread of harmful sarcoma such as Salmonella, Salvia and E. coli 0157 which can cause food poisoning.
Cold processed meat.
Cold-processed meat includes salami, butter, and sausage. Some countries recommend that pregnant women avoid eating cold meat or smoked fish as there is a small risk of these foods to tolerate Listeria or parasite that causes toxoplasmosis.
You may choose to avoid meat and smoked fish during pregnancy if you are concerned about these risks.
It may be best to avoid meat before packed in pregnancy.
Do not eat liver or liver products such as liver pate or liver sausages, as they may contain a lot of vitamin A. Too much vitamin A can hurt your baby.
Vitamins and Fish Oil.
Do not take high doses of multivitamin supplements, fish liver oil supplements or any supplements that contain vitamin A.
Some species of fish
Do not eat sharks, swordfish and marlin, and try to limit the amount of tuna you eat to:
• Not more than two slices of tuna per week (about 140 grams cooked or 170 grams each), or
• Four medium tuna cans per week (about 140 g without oil).
These species of fish contain high levels of mercury that can damage the developing nervous system of your child. Do not eat more than two portions of oily fish per week. Oily fish include fresh tuna (but not canned tuna), salmon, mackerel, sardines and trout.
Eat cooked oysters instead of being raw (including mussels, crayfish, crabs, prawns, scallops and oysters) because they can contain harmful bacteria and viruses that can cause food poisoning.
It is good to eat sushi and other dishes made from raw fish at conception as long as the fish used to make them have been frozen beforehand. This is because fish sometimes contain small parasitic worms that can cause you disease. The freeze kills worms and makes raw fish safe to eat.
Many of the sushi sold in the shops are not made in the same shop. This type of sushi should be good to eat, because if the shop or restaurant buys ready-made sushi, the raw fish used in the industry should be frozen at 20 ° C for at least 24 hours.
If you have any doubts, you may want to avoid eating sushi that contains raw seafood such as tuna.
If you want to eat peanuts or foods that contain peanuts (such as peanut butter) during pregnancy, you can choose this as part of a healthy and balanced diet, unless you are allergic to them or if your doctor advises against taking them.
You may have heard that women in the past would choose not to eat peanuts during pregnancy. This is because the government has previously advised women to avoid eating peanuts if they have a history of allergies (such as asthma, eczema, hay fever, food allergies or other allergies) in immediate family members.
If you have milk, drink only pasteurized milk or superheated milk – sometimes called long-term milk. If raw (unpasteurized) milk was available, it would be boiled for the first time. Do not drink goats’ milk or unpasteurized sheep or eat foods made from them, such as soft goat cheese.
It is okay to eat soft ice cream during pregnancy, because it is processed products made of pasteurized milk and eggs, thus eliminating any risk of salmonella food poisoning. However, if you have any concerns about taking these products, you may want to avoid them during pregnancy.
For homemade ice cream, use an alternative pasteurized egg or an egg-free recipe.
High levels of caffeine can lead to a decrease in the weight of children at birth, which can increase the risk of health problems later in life. Much caffeine also causes miscarriage.
Caffeine is found naturally in many foods, such as coffee, tea and chocolate, and has been added to some soft drinks and energy drinks. Some cold and flu treatments also contain caffeine. Talk to your midwife, doctor, or pharmacist before taking these treatments.
