Is it safe to eat peanuts while pregnant? I've read contradicting things on the internet. "What to expect when you're expecting" lists peanuts in their pregnancy diet. But I've been reading that it might up your baby's chances of being allergic. Neither me, nor my husband have food allergies.
i think it is just if you or dh have allergies eating peanuts may increase the babys risk of getting allergies but like you i heard split info on this subject. however i did eat peanuts in pregnancy and ds was fine no allergies at al but then again me and dh are allergy free too
I ate probably a ton of peanut butter when I was pregnant. All meats grossed me out so I ate peanut butter for protein. Neither my husband nor I is allergic to it so I wasn't too worried. My boy is now a year old and I have given him a bit of PNB. He loved it and is not showing any signs of being allergic.
