Just wondering if anyone can advise? When I went to the doctors last week she rattled off a list of foods I should avoid now I'm pregnant. Thinking back, I have a feeling I heard her say peanuts should be avoided, which I thought were ok unless you have a history of nut allergies in your family, which I don't. I didn't really pick up on it at the time, as I don't generally like peanuts so wouldn't have them anyway. However, as a vegetarian, I've been conscious of the need to include more protein in my diet, especially now for the baby. One food I really like and where I often get more protein from I knew was made from nuts, but I've just realised it's 52% peanut (which I think is the only nut in it). I haven't eaten any just in case, but the issue is not discussed in my pregnancy book, and when I googled I found lots of conflicting advice. Can anyone tell me what the current guidance is and if I would have heard my doctor correctly or not? Thanks.
