Are seafood sticks safe to eat during pregnancy?

I know its not raw fish, which is a no no, but I'm not 100% sure whether I should be eating them. Thanks

i think it is ok because if you look on the packet it says crab/fish flavoured so not much actual fish goes onto them.

raw fish is not a no-no - I ate loads of sushi, it's whether or not the fish is frozen first, which it invariably is. I love seafood sticks and carried on eating them and blue cheese etc.
Be aware that rules and advice very different in other countries and I think advice in UK is particularly paranoid

Thanks for that. Nowadays, what can you eat during pregnancy. I think in moderation, a bit of anything can't harm you. I still eat soft cheese from time to time on my toast and it's not done me any harm. I love blue cheese too.

There's lots of information on them here:

Might put you off eating them though!
