Totally safe and very nutritious for the baby as well. I ate nuts a lot when I was pregnant and that helped me avoid unhealthy stuff like candy. Go ahead.

Why wouldn’t you be able? As long as you’re not allergic.

Safe, and very good for you and baby.  The advice to avoid nuts is pretty old-fashioned – the thought was that it could lead to nut allergies in your baby.  There’s actually some evidence now that eating nuts during pregnancy decreases the risk of nut allergies (which makes a lot more sense – your baby is exposed to them early on so their digestive system would be primed to be able to handle them).  As long as you don’t have an allergy, go for it.

I ate a lot of nuts when I was pregnant. It was one of the few foods that didn’t make me nauseous or have heartburn.

Yes they are fine so long as there are no allergies. I didnt eat nuts during my pregnancy however, but that was because my husband is deathly allergic to all kinds of nuts and peanuts and I was told to err on the side of caution just in case. But even so it was probably not a problem for me to eat nuts.

Funnily enough that was my first craving.
