Here are 11 foods and drinks to avoid or minimize during pregnancy. 1. High mercury fish
Pregnant women should not eat high mercury fish more than 1-2 times a month. This includes shark, swordfish, tuna and mackerel.
2. Raw or undercooked fish
Raw fish and shellfish may be contaminated with bacteria and parasites. Some of these can cause adverse health effects and harm both the mother and the fetus.
3. Raw, raw and processed meat
Raw or undercooked meat may contain harmful bacteria. As a general rule, the meat should be cooked to the end.
4. Raw eggs
Raw eggs may be contaminated with Salmonella, which can lead to disease and an increased risk of preterm birth or stillbirth. Pasteurized eggs can be used instead.

Pregnant women should limit their caffeine intake to 200 mg per day, which is about 2-3 cups of coffee. High caffeine intake during pregnancy can limit fetal growth and cause low birth weight.

Raw buds may be contaminated by bacteria inside the seeds. Pregnant women should only eat cooked sprouts.

The surface of unwashed or unpeeled fruits and vegetables may be contaminated with various bacteria and parasites. It is important to thoroughly wash all fruits and vegetables.
