Bit late since you've finished that salad long ago! But just to say, a hand made Caesar dressing will have raw egg in it, so if that's a concern for you, then maybe avoid Caesar salad.

the other thing with caesar salad might be the cold chicken if you made chicken caesar.

My rule with fetta/ricotta is that its ok hot and same with sandwich meats. But if I buy the ham fresh I generally eat it the same day and that seems ok.

Funny coz in the Uk there is no rules like this at all !!

I thought that freshly sliced ham from a proper Delicatessan was ok? and ham sliced straight off the bone too? I love ham and miss it badly!

As with soft cheeses, I never thought of Ricotta and Fetta... spewin! I've bought some Ricotta and wanted to make my fave Canelloni! sad.gif


any processed meats pose a risk.

Ricotta in a Canelloni is fine.

Is philadelphia cream cheese ok? Anyone know? I have some of those little tubs of them, so wouldn;t be like its opening a whole container and keeping it in thr fridge and using bit by bit...

Just got my double lines on HPT (x2) this weekend so still have to get Dr's final confirmation that I am up the duff but don't want to risk eating stuff I shouldn't just in case...i have this fridge full of food that i potentially can't eat (we weren't planning on getting pregnant quite yet - its all good though! V. excited!)

Also since painkillers are not ok and I suffer from headaches very often - including now - anyone know of any natural headache remedies that are ok to use during pregnancy??

Big big thanks!!

Mel


Cottage and cream cheeses are generally considered safe for at risk groups, however purchase only pre-packaged product and consume well within ’use-by dates’. Avoid purchasing from delicatessen counters.

Is it safe to eat chicken caesar salads? I'm eating one now and its got a boiled egg in it, plus chicken...but its the caesar dressing I'm unsure about.

Any ideas ladies?


any home made creamy dressings pose a risk due to containing raw egg. Watch out for aioli dressing when eating out too.

Chicken should be piping hot when served.

Hi ladies

We're heading over to Italy next week for my BIL's wedding can't bloody wait!

Just wondering if anyone knows if proscuitto is ok to eat? I'm thinking probably not, but I love the stuff so I'm kinda hoping someone will tell me I'm wrong in that department. tongue.gif

I've also been avoiding all types of seafood except fish. But since I'm over there, would seafood be ok to eat if its cooked and hot? I'm thinking prawns and calamari etc

Thanks for your tips

Probably a bit late now Kell, but I tend to avoid it unless it's hot.

But then again I'm completely paraniod laugh.gif

Crisis- yep, proscuitto is a no-no- sorry! As for the seafood....hmmm. I think if it's FRESH (ie hasn't been sitting in their fridges for a week first) and steaming hot you should be okay. Although I reckon- "if in doubt, leave it out" is a good rule to apply with any iffy foods.

May seem a silly question, but are ant-acids tablets like Rennie ok to take ?

Lissie i'm sure they're fine. I take mylanta or quick eze for the same reasons. Check with your pharmacist if you want to be 100% sure.

The second link to medications is not working... does anyone else have any good links for that?
I also was wondering can you use nasal spray? I have the worst blocked nose at the moment... it is so annoying.

Hi guys,
I'm very early on in my pregnancy so still trying to get my head around all the do's and dont's of what to eat etc.

Just wondering, do you think its ok to have a salad sandwich (no meat) from the salad bar in a food court or should I avoid it because the food has been sitting there for a while?

Also, if you can't have a freshly made sandwich, what can you eat from a food court at a shopping centre that is low risk?

Thanks everyone,

Tanya

Listeriosis is incredibly rare (only about 30-40 cases in Australia per year) and if you get it, it's probably more bad luck than anything. But seeing as it's so devastating for the baby, it's best to avoid things that 'may' give it to you. Salads in a food court have potential. You'd be best to buy your own bread and salad from a grocers and wash and assemble it yourself. Might save you some money too. smile.gif If you're going to eat from a food court, the general rule is to avoid bain maries (ie, food sitting in the trays under glass) and get something which is cooked immediately. My local food court does yummy laksas, bibimbab (japanese rice and vegies) and vegetarian crepe's which are all cooked while you wait. yummy!!!

OK, Christmas is coming, and one thing I LOVE doing, is buying a ham on the bone and keeping it in the fridge (wrapped up in a ham bag) and cutting slices my self to nibble on and for sandwiches etc. I only ever do this at Christmas time..

I know ham from the deli is a no no, but what about ham on the bone kept in the fridge?????


My happy little boy!
