Is Chinese food OK???

This may be a silly question, but is it ok to eat chinese food when you are pg? A friend called last night and wants to go eat chinese on Thurs. I of course said yes, but now I'm worried that maybe it isn't safe.

Hi Teach!

The only concern I've ever heard about Chinese food during pregnancy is the level of sodium in it. As long as your bp hasn't been high & you aren't eating excessive amounts of salt, then I think it's perfectly fine to eat Chinese food every once in a while. Enjoy!!

Teach- you should be fine. I just had it on Sunday and it was yummy! The only concern is the MSG. I would ask is if they use MSG. (It's completely fine to ask, I did) Most chinese restaurants now no longer use it. However, if the place you go to uses it, you can ask them to prepare your food without it. Enjoy!

Thanks guys! I had a feeling it was ok, because I didn't think many used MSG anymore, but I just wanted to be sure!! I will for sure enjoy my chinese on Thursday!
