We all know that a healthy diet is important during pregnancy.

A SAFE diet is also important during pregnancy.

When you are pregnant, take these items off the menu.

They are not safe for you and your baby.


Raw and undercooked meat,

Raw fish ( sushi ) 

Raw eggs ( raw cookie dough )

Unpasteurized dairy- blue cheese, feta cheese

Deli meat that is not heated up


  • Listeria- a bacteria on some uncooked and unpasteurized foods
  • Mercury- found in some fish
  • Miscarriage and other fetal complications can occur if exposed to unsafe foods during pregnancy


  • Heat up or cook your deli meat and hotdogs
  • Meat should be cooked all the way through. No rare or pink meat
  • Fish should be cooked, no uncooked sushi
  • Wash fruits and vegetables before you eat them
  • Always wash your hands when you’re handling and preparing food
  • Keep raw and uncooked food away from cooked food to make sure there’s no cross-contamination

If you are experiencing a craving to eat unsafe foods or eat things that are not food and have no nutritional value, let your doctor know.
