    Hey everyone,
    Is it safe to eat bananas (one a day) while pregnant? I heard that it will cause some problems (asthma or cold often) in babies when they grow up.
    Does anyone have more info abt it?
    I am 15 weeks pregnant and little concerned.

    If not anything else,I think it is the only food that helps relieve constipation easily,so I too think it is safe.

    Hi,
    I used to eat bananas everyday while I was pregnant, while I was working it was my breakfast. My kids are very healthy and each of them were close to 9 lbs when they were born…most of the time asthma will come only if it is there in the family. and cold, it's normal.. kids will get it irrespective of what we eat..

    If you are concerned should consult your gynac..

    Hi pragati,
    Please avoid eating pineapple , mango and papaya. They say it is heaty. i dont know but it is better to abstain than regret. Bananas are perfectly safe. i used to eat one a day. My colleague used to eat 6 a day... hard to beleive but its true.

    Hi,
    I ate one banana for breakfast when I was pregnant.
    It reduces acidity and it has 5 vitamins and potassium
    which is good nutrient. You can go ahead.

    Sure you can have banana it has lot of potassium which is very good for cramping in legs (we will get lot of cramping in legs during pregnancy).

    Congrats for ur pregnancy
