Weird, was not on my ' do not eat foods ' from my gyn. What I understand is anything made from unpasturized milk is not good anything made using raw eggs as well. I have been eating yughurt as one of my sources of non meat protein. Will check with my doc.

I know its not on mine from Dr either but wic is saying this... when I googled it I found tons of stuff including one from the Mayo clinic stating that it is very healthy and recommended to eat it up to 3 times a day! So I'm confused, gonna ask my Dr too!

Yogurt is perfectly fine and will actually help keep your stomach regular and help prevent yeast infections. I would guess its some kind of typo on WICS part.

When I was real eased from l&d they told me to eat 2 cups a day it's great in calcium and helps regulate your intestines. My doc and my sons doc said always ask them before you listen to anyone from wic as they are not doctors.

When I was preggo with my 1st bby I always ate a yogurt in the morning on my way tk school. And as of right now my daughter dsn't get sick as much as my other two kids... That's a lie.. They always come up with sone dumb.. And that also helps our body after delivery... It's very good and healthy while we are pregnant and for after...
