Any unpasteurized beverage is a risk, but milk may be an even higher risk unpasteurized product. To protect your growing baby, shop for milk that reads “pasteurized” on the label.
Make sure to go for pasteurized juices. However, in general, our best bet is to limit the consumption of juice and go for the whole fruit which contains beneficial fiber!
Sugar is not banned for pregnant women, but rather should be advised against sugary drinks as the sugar in these drinks can really add up quickly even in some fruit juices and especially soft drinks.
Alcohol is the one thing pretty much everyone knows they need to avoid while pregnant. No amount of alcohol is considered safe for pregnancy. It’s best to refrain from alcohol entirely during pregnancy.
Coffee, tea, soda, and chocolate are all extremely popular worldwide, but we do want to caution drinking excessive amounts of caffeine during pregnancy. It can lead to unwanted pregnancy outcomes.
Most energy drinks contain significant amounts of caffeine and added sugar, two ingredients you want to limit! These drinks may even cause unpleasant symptoms during your pregnancy like anxiety, heartburn, increased blood pressure, and increased heart rate.
