Mercury is a highly toxic element. It has no known safe level of exposureand is most commonly 2. Undercooked or raw fish. This one will be tough for you sushi fans, but it’s an important one.

Raw fish, especially 3. During pregnancy, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) encourages you to avoid: Bigeye tuna King mackerel Marlin Orange roughy Swordfish Shark Tilefish. To minimize listeria risk, avoid foods most likely to carry it, such as certain types of processed meats (unless they’ve been thoroughly heated), smoked fish, soft cheeses and unpasteurized milk. For the same reason as avoiding hotdogs, lunch meat and other deli meat should be avoided or limited when you are pregnant.

If you do occasionally give in to the craving and consume lunch meat, it should be heated until it is steaming hot to kill any possible bacteria. 11. Eggs that aren’t cooked thoroughly. Yup, you can kiss sushi goodbye because it’s definitely one of the top foods to avoid during early pregnancy (actually your whole pregnancy too – sigh) Eating raw fish or raw shellfish runs the risk of exposing your growing fetus to the contamination that might lead to. It is therefore recommended that pregnant women avoid eating sprouts, including alfalfa, clover and mung bean sprouts.

Raw Or Cold Seafood & High-Mercury Fish Like raw and cold meats, raw and cold seafood is also dangerous to consume during pregnancy. Eggs. Because raw eggs may be tainted with salmonella, a bacterium that can cause fever, vomiting, and diarrhea, watch out for restaurant-made Caesar salad dressing, homemade eggnog, raw cookie dough, and soft scrambled or sunny-side up eggs — any dish in which the eggs (both yolk and white) are not cooked completely. If you are pregnant and you are considering eating deli meats, make certain that you reheat the meat until it is steaming.
