    Default Lite n Easy while pregnant

    Does anyone know whether it is ok to eat the Lite n Easy dinners while pregnant? I know alot of the lunches etc cannot be eaten as some contain ham and things like that but i would think the dinners would be okay? TIA

    Speak to your dr but I would just ensure you're getting required calories. What's salt content like? Also pre packaged salads can be iffy

    The lunches would definitely be out - too many listeria risks. The dinners, mini meals and meal bowls would be fine though. They average around 400 calories for dinner so you will want to make sure you are eating enough through the day as you want to be getting about 2000 calories a day. If you go onto their website you can get nutritional info for all dinners. I find them a little light on the protein.

    The dinners should be fine so long as they are heated properly, it's no less safe than re heating a pre prepared ready meal from the supermarket.

    They have heaps of veggies so definitely a better choice on lazy days than take-away or cheese in toast!

    There fine to eat just heat up nice and hot

    I used to have them for lazy days when I couldn't be bothered or have them for lunches since I couldn't eat my favourite like sushi and cold meat & salad sandwiches

    During pregnancy you need to have lot of calories, it does not mean you can have cake for dinner. There so many foods which have calories.

    I mean to say that cake will contain alcohol as it is not good for pregnant. As some of them will have cake after dinner because of that i have mention not to have cake, though it is not part of the discussion.
