Can 15-week Pregnant Women Eat Quail Eggs?
Good afternoon doctor, I’m 15 weeks pregnant … I want to ask that the quail eggs contain high cholesterol, can pregnant women eat quail eggs … and if allowed, how many items are allowed?
Pregnant women are strongly advised to consume a variety of healthy and nutritiously balanced foods. Quail eggs themselves contain protein and various other nutrients, but it is true that the cholesterol content is quite high. Therefore, quail eggs should be consumed in moderation and not excessive.
In general, pregnant women need protein intake of 0.88-1.1 g / kg / day. This protein is used for the development of fetal body cells. Protein is not only obtained from quail eggs, but can also be from chicken or duck eggs, fish, meat, chicken, milk, and nuts.
Thus, if you want to eat quail eggs, it is OK but must be balanced with other nutritional intake and try changing menus so that adequate nutrition can be balanced. 1-2 quail eggs per day alone is enough so as not excessive, you can meet the lack of protein from various other sources as above yes. Don't forget to cook eggs and the meat must be thoroughly cooked.
Hope it helps you,
