Dark chocolate has antioxidants. All other chocolate has no benefit but wont hurt.

Chocolate won't harm your baby, but everything in moderation, right? Dark chocolate contains antioxidants, so if you like the slightly bitter taste it is the better option. But beware that the reason some might caution you against eating it is because 1, the amount of sugar that is found in chocolate is quite high, which can pose problems for pregnant women. And 2, all chocolate contains caffeine. Not as much as a cup of coffee, but it does have it. Most health practitioners encourage pregnant women to reduce or completely eliminate their caffeine consumption. But I would say as long as you do not have diabetes, gestational or otherwise, enjoying a small piece of quality chocolate now and then will not cause you or your baby any harm.

Chocolate isnt bad for anyone lol my dentist told me if im craving chocolate or even sweets to go and buy a whole block and just eat the whole thing until im chocolate outd lol she said its way better for your teeth and probs will make u not crave it for a while after. I didnt listen to her tho lol I just have it when I wont just making sure I dont go overboard but I have a bad sweet tooth.
