7. Unpasteurized Milk and Cheese

Fresh cow’s milk may be something you crave when pregnant, but it may have the bacteria e. coli in it! Don’t risk putting you or your baby in harm's way. Soft cheeses are another item that most docs say you should refrain from eating when pregnant since there may be traces of e. coli or listeria inside. The same goes for unpasteurized cheeses, like feta.

As always, pregnant women should practice complete safety regarding any foods consumed. Wash all vegetables and fruits with warm and soapy water, and thoroughly cook any dish before eating it. And fast foods or processed foods should generally be avoided just to be healthier, for both mom and baby! What foods do you like to eat when you are pregnant?
