I would say balance diet, everything in moderation. there are some food that should of cos be avoided like raw food, fish with high mercury. end of the day, listen to your body. being pregnant isn't easy, your hormones changed, mood and taste changed. it's hard to tell you what must eat, what you can't because sometimes you're crazily craving for it.. just take a bite or two. enjoy the journey, happy mommy happy baby.

False about sour food:) eat cooked food, a well balanced diet. Avoid too much caffeine, raw/undercooked food, swordfish/tuna which have a lot of mercury

Aiyo! Who say cannot? Sour foods helps you to kinda relieve morning sickness. Even our grandmothers ate asam or pickled fruits during pregnancy.


you can eat anything, in moderation. but pls go to reputable restaurants if you plan to eat raw/sashimi
