I have been craving lots of milo lately, but today I looked on the back and saw it contains vitamin A! I've heard you're not supposed to have too much vitamin A during pregnancy. Is milo safe? TIA

Is milo safe for pregnancy?
09-02-2014 20:18 #2
I would say so. The levels wouldn't be high enough in it to cause an adverse affect. If this were the case, there would be warnings on it I'm sure! Only if you were taking Vit A tablets or other tablets with high amounts of Vit A in it, then I would think it unsafe.

I dont think milo would have anywhere near as much vitamin A in it as multivitamins so I wouldnt worry. I only survived the 1st trimester thanks to sustogen & milo due to horrible food aversions.

I was encouraged to drink milo when I was pregnant as I had very low iron levels.

I just checked my milo tin, and vitamin A is conspicuously absent from the list of vitamins and minerals!
My prenatal multivitamin has 3000iu of vitamin A per tablet, which is fine for pregnancy. The ingredients list should tell you how much vitamin A is in each cup. I reason that if it's less than 3000iu's, it should be fine.
Of course, milo is also 50% sugar but I guess that is a separate issue.....

I too was encouraged to drink milo when pregnant for iron levels. I've never heard anything about it being bad.
