Q:

it's safe to eat jack fruit  during pregnancy?  I am 12weeks pregnant



Prithvi Balaji

in south India it is said not to eat. so best is no. if you have a craving then just to satisfy that maybe have a piece.

Prithvi Balaji here nothing like that, m from kerala... and i have eaten a lot 😊... but it does make you gain weight.. so yes, eat in moderation...

Prithvi Balaji

Sheeba Vijesh. I love to eat it but in my pregencies my family was against it and they said you get cramps and should not eat. so I did not. again region to region it does change so it can be taken as you said in moderation.

ya... right from pregnancy to birth of baby till she gets married off and even after that, no dearth of suggestions and advises Prithvi Balaji... ha ha... except pineapple i ate everything... and only thing i was dying for was pineapple!!! 😛
