Christmas is a time of conflict in matters of food and diet and, if you are pregnant, much more. The idea that we should not exaggerate with the changes that we introduce in the diet during pregnancy does not work in the case of Christmas, which is a period full of excesses and changes in the meals.
Christmas is a time of conflict in matters of food and diet and, if you are pregnant, much more. The idea that we should not exaggerate with the changes that we introduce in the diet during pregnancy does not work in the case of Christmas, which is a period full of excesses and changes in the meals. In
Christmas more than ever, the pregnant woman must take care of her diet to avoid unnecessary risks. Because due to inadequate nutrition, the fetus can be affected in its development, it can suffer malformations and there is even a risk of abortion. What to eat safely at Christmas
Christmas meals are inevitably linked to seafood and that is when we think about that eternal debate that is the convenience or not of eating shellfish in pregnancy. If you're pregnant this Christmas, you do not have to skip the seafood dishes on the Christmas menu. To take no risks, just do not abuse and
avoid, of course, eat raw seafood .Actually, any raw food is a risk for pregnancy, so this Christmas do not be afraid to la eat the meat very well and also the fish
. So if you usually include sushi or carpaccio on the Christmas table, this year you will have to replace them with very cooked food. In this sense, it is also convenient to avoid smoked salmon, so typical of Christmas. The goal of avoiding certain foods, such as raw or undercooked meats and fish, salmon or classic ham, is to avoid diseases such as toxoplasmosis or listeriosis that can harm the development of your baby. Do not mind letting yourself be pampered this Christmas and do not let yourself be carried away by the festive spirit, because youshould take care of your food more than ever
. You should also be careful with dairy products, whichcan not be made with unpasteurized milk.
Avoid fresh cheese and make sure that any homemade dessert is pasteurized. The same goes for pâté and foie gras, which, however much they turn out to be a delicacy at any Christmas table, will make the pregnancy less dangerous the more processed they are. Do not forget to maintain certain fundamental habits this Christmas, because these holidays are characterized by relaxing customs and adopting harmful habits. Do not let them smoke at family gatherings and do not try a drop of alcohol
, not even champagne, because they are because they can jeopardize pregnancy. Laura Vélez.Copywriter
