Hi @Amykatie123 don't stress too much about it, I've found I haven't needed to alter my diet too much.

A PP has already provided the NHS guidance so I won't bother listing out the foods to avoid.

The thing I found comforting was that with most of the foods to avoid, it's just because the food is more likely to contain harmful bacteria. But that doesn't mean it will be harmful! So if you accidentally eat something on the 'avoid' list but feel fine afterwards, then you shouldn't need to worry. Just try and avoid them when you can, to be safe.

There are very few foods you need to totally avoid because they are 'dangerous'. Fish that's high in mercury is basically the only one.

And liver/pate due to vitamin A.

Ah yes @dementedpixie I forgot about liver (because I don't eat it even when not pregnant)
