I would say, everything in moderation! Thus far (from what I’ve read), there had not been any study that found any relation between consuming cold stuff during pregnancy and negative impact on the baby. However, from the TCM point of view, having cold food is not beneficial to an individual’s body (to everyone, regardless of age or gender). Personally, I believe in simply keeping to a balanced diet and having everything in moderation. I have a friend who had cravings for ice cream during her pregnancy and would have some every other day. She gave birth to a healthy baby. One thing to note is that ice cream can still be high in fat and sugar content. So be sure not to overindulge. :)
