Consumption Of Canned Fish During Pregnancy?
Can pregnant women eat canned sardine?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. For pregnant women, careful selection of food, drinks, drugs and cosmetics is important, because not all are safe to use, even though it was not a problem being used before pregnancy.
For food, there are some foods that should be avoided for pregnant women, such as:
Sea fish that contain high mercury such as tuna and marlin
Cheese made from unpasteurized milk
Fruits and vegetables are raw and not cleaned
As for sardines, sardines are one example of seafood that is low in mercury and rich in omega 3 which is important for babies. Same is the case with shrimp and salmon. But the dose must still be limited, not more than 340 grams per week. So you may only consume these foods, but must still pay attention to other things such as avoiding cigarette smoke, physical activity that is too heavy, and routine control to the doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
