Pineapples are ok in moderation, especially in the quantities that would be in a sweet and sour sauce. Apparently, you would have to eat about 5 whole pineapples to cause any problems. I tried it to induce labour with both my two and it didn't work.
Water chestnuts on the other hand I have no idea about.
seriously? i cant imagine why some site wud say we cant have them, ive never heard of anyone getting ill from a water chestnut! dont worry, u and baby will be totally fine!
Relax ladies. You and your babies will not get ill or suffer adverse effects from a fruit or a vegetable or even a whippy ice-cream.
The only food(s) to really TRULY avoid are shark/Marlin due to the mercury content. Unpasturised foods and dairy/deli foods in UNSANITARY countries.
In advanced countries there are so many health and safety checks on all foods that we are so unlikely to get truly ill from them. Just follow rthe same safety precautions as you do when not pregnant (cooking chicken thoroughly etc etc) xxx
I'd say a load of rubbish love. I've been very active here for almost 3 years and heard pretty much every scare story going... and known some very OTT cautious mothers/mothers to be but never have I heard anything bad about those poor innocent water chestnuts lolol xx
Er, what? I eat Chinese food at least once a week. It's been a major craving of mine and most of it contains water chestnuts.
The other night I also ate a bowl of cut pineapple? Can't say I've ever heard of either of these things being a danger and to be completely honest I think it's bullshit and I'm pretty cautious. Lol.
