Effects Of Consumption Of Raw Instant Noodles While 5 Months Pregnant?
afternoon, want to ask me how come I always wanted to eat raw noodles, my pregnancy is currently 5 months is it safe to consume?
Hello Nur, Teirma, thank you for your question.
A pregnant woman does have to pay attention to the consumption of food and drinks because this can affect the development of the baby it contains. You can consume instant noodles without the need to cook it first. However, you are not recommended to consume too much, both in pregnancy and not pregnant. Raw instant noodles contain no calories / nutrients, and are made with preservatives. Consuming excessive instant noodles can certainly potentially harm the developing fetus. Furthermore, if you also consume spices, instant noodle seasoning generally contains MSG and high in sodium which is also not good for health if consumed in excessive amounts.
You should avoid consuming instant noodles. Try to improve your food consumption for the health and development of your baby, increase consumption of vegetables, fruits, nuts. Make sure you consume every nutrient, carbohydrate, fat, protein, vitamin and mineral. Do not forget to also check yourself regularly to your obstetrician according to the schedule determined to check your pregnancy.
Hopefully this information is useful.
