Yes it is and more than 50mg of b6 a day is not good as well

So should I be avoiding milo? Which has 110mcg of vitamin A per 20g serving

It's my understanding that the level of vitamin A present in most foods is fine, with the exception of liver because it's just too high.

Don't avoid vitamin A as it's important for baby, just don't take supplements ( most decent pregnancy vitamins don't have vitamin A added)
It is quite easy to get naturally - 1 small carrot meets your entire limit - which is aporox 770mcg - I probably wouldn't drink to much milo anyway if you need to watch your blood sugar levels during pregnancy but I'm sure the odd one won't hurt !

My blood sugar levels are fine, I was more trying to find a way to add more vitamins and minerals into my diet. I'm taking elevit with iodine and ferro grad c (when I remember) but with my crohns disease I seem to have trouble absorbing things. So I was going to start trying to have a milo with lactose free milk every now and then to give me a boost

I think you have nothing to worry about

Sorry to high jack, but what about berocca? Is that ok? I've googled and the general consensus is yes, even berocca themselves say yes if no other supplements are being taken...

Like PP have said don't take any extra vitamin a but I don't think you need to worry about naturally occurring.. I take elevit and then MW put me on vit d tablets cause mine was low
