Checks before eating
Eat from reputed brands that have hygienic ice creams. If it is homemade, use pasteurized eggs and milk, so that the listeria and salmonella bacteria are destroyed.
Limits during pregnancy
Have it occasionally

The occassional craving for eating ice cream is completely normal. It is a treat to the taste buds and even has certain vitamins and minerals. Since it is made from milk and cream, it contains the mineral calcium that aids in the bone development of your baby. It also has Vitamin A that helps to build strong lungs and healthy eyes, and aids in skin cell production of the baby.

Unhygienically-prepared ice cream or ice cream prepared from unpasteurized milk, however, may contain two types of harmful bacteria – listeria and salmonella. These bacteria can affect the amniotic fluid, placenta or fetus, if you get infected. That, in turn, can lead to several unwanted complications like miscarriage, stillbirth, meningitis, and respiratory infections in your newborn child. To ensure maximum safety of you and your baby, we recommend that you eat ice cream in moderation.
