Hii. I am 5 months pregnant. My gynae adviced me not to eat food outside. And I am very fond of eating outside food. My question is why can't I eat and from which month I can eat outside food?

Hi may be due to hygienic reasons she would have asked you. These days swine flu has hit few cities, so as pregnant mom you need to be more careful. Please control till you deliver.

You can make tasty food at home..there are many recipe's on this app itself which are home made, healthy and you can try..outside food is laden with oil, spice and maida..also it may be unhygienic and cause infections..so one must avoid
