hot dogs

I read that you're not supposed to eat hotdogs while pregnant. Do you know if It's because of the nitrates? If so, can't you just buy nitrate free ones? Or are there other problems with them? Thanks in advance!

Hmm, nitrates are found in a lot more foods then hot dogs. Don't think I have ever heard this one. If you are being really healthy you probably shouldnt eat any processed foods, which includes most cheeses and much much more.

I think it's just raw hot dogs that you can't eat (which seems gross anyway lol)

I was told by my midwife to not eat hot dogs or processed sandwich meat.

U can eat them, just make sure they are completely cooked/heated thru...the concern is abt listeria, bacteria. The same with lunch meat..just heat it up n u kill the bacteria that could be very harmful to the baby...;-)
