Is boxed Kraft mac n cheese ok while pregnant?

Stupid ? i know but pregnant women worry.(and i have a doc app tomorrow but i dont wanna sit up worrying if i ate something bad u know.)

ok so someone just saw me eat a bowl of it (kraft mac n cheese) and told me its not safe...... Now ive Never ever heard this i ate it in my 1st pregnancy but i ate stuff then thats off limits now. So i figured why not ask other ladies if they heard this or not....

please dont answer idk i really want good answers


btw im 31 wks pregnant....


yea i know all the other stuff about meds etc.... im not that dull LOL.

just wondered about this food b/c 2 yrs ago i was eating subway and i was told this pregnancy that deli meats are off limits thats all just thought oh god they are making another food off limits now too? LOL

thanks very much i know all the other stuff tho just wanted a good yes or no lol

Update 2:

oh and i like the organic thing but im lactose intolerant so i dont eat this often but i craved it so orgainc brands wont help health why LOL. i eat plenty of healthy food trust me im soo sick of healthy food LOL.

i miss pop candy and my occasional junk food :( and no im not fat im just a craver and i know not to do the junk food while pregnant.:)

Update 3:

    Mac & Cheese is perfectly fine for pregnancy - I had it many times while pregnant with #2 because my daughter loves having mac & cheese for lunch (and was going through a phase where she was unhappy if I ate something different than her).

    Boxed Mac and Cheese and any other kind of mac and cheese if perfectly fine to eat while pregnant. There are only a few foods to steer clear from while pregnant and they include:

    Raw meat such as sushi, seafood, rare or uncooked beef, or poultry because of the risk of contamination with coliform bacteria, toxoplasmosis, and salmonella.

    Raw eggs, or foods containing raw egg such as Caesar dressing, mayonnaise, homemade ice cream or custard, unpasteurized eggnog, or Hollandaise sauce because raw eggs may be contaminated with salmonella (most store bought mayo or caesar are fine..its the homemade kind that is unhealthy.)

    Soft cheese such as blue cheese, feta, Brie, Camambert, and Latin-American soft white cheeses such as queso blanco and queso fresco because they may harbor harmful bacteria.

    Fish containing accumulated levels of mercury in their fatty tissues such as shark, swordfish, king mackerel, tilefish.

    Also most deli meats (heat them to steaming), and hotdogs (too much nitrates)....otherwise most things are just fine in moderation. Remember lots of protein builds a healthy baby, steer clear of junk food all that does is cause excessive weight gain and provides no nutrients to your baby.

    Source(s): My doctor gave me a list....I am 14 weeks pregnant!

    eating mac-n-cheese is fine. although it's not the healthiest food out on the market it's not going to hurt your baby, and the doctor won't be mad. if eating kraft is really such a problem, try an organic brand of mac-n-cheese. but it really doesn't make a difference and won't harm your baby.

    The macaroni and cheese from Kraft isn't bad. I would eat homemade because the salt can be controlled.

    girl mac & cheese is good for you

    you should have ask the person why

    if you can feed it to a child, you can eat it while you are pregnant at least that is my policy

    Good luck & Congrats on the pregnancy

    Macaroni and cheese is perfectly fine... many women are told many different things based on their own conditions while pregnant. Keep it simple limit caffeine, limit smoking if a smoker, and only regular Tylenol unless consulting with your physician first....good luck!

    I was never told by my Dr. not to eat it while I was pregnant. I am not sure how it could hurt you. You just aren't supposed to eat cheese that isn't pastuerized.
