    Oh definitely, wasn't trying to dispute that fact! I think as long as you make smart decisions (don't eat stuff that doesn't look fresh, don't eat from dodgy food vans or servos and that sort of thing). I would imagine places like subway for example have strict policies and food hygiene practices, plus restock the salads often during the day. I think the only place I really avoided was sizzler salad bar because I couldn't always tell how fresh it was.

    I avoided sushi, because of the rice being questionable. Fresh or homemade like a pp said would have been okay i think.
    I had subway a couple of times, but only the one near work that had a high turnover. I got them to nuke whatever “meat” in the microwave and also toast it. For my own bizarre reason, I avoided the lettuce... but piled on the pickles. It was the best choice at the time (fried food wasnt an option 🤢)
    I also craved maccas cheeseburgers a few times! No drama eating those!

    I craved meat and salad sandwiches with dd2, so would regularly get Subway or freshly made from sandwich bars if I was out and didn't bring my own (or had already eaten them ). I just went to places that seemed clean. It wasn't ideal and I was worried about the Listeria risks, but figured it was better than the deep fried diet I had with dd1.

    I craved KFC twisters, not the actual twister itself but that peppery mayo sauce that’s one them.... YUUUUMMMM!!!! Could have left the chicken and other bits out and just had the wrap dipped in that sauce 🤤🤤🤤

    I tend to eat the "no-no" foods from places that are big enough that they couldn't sustain damage to their reputation/must have strict hygiene standards- such as maccas for soft serve. They couldn't afford listeria being linked to their brand, so I feel it's safe. Other stuff like ham, I'll only eat when its hot. Bagged salad, I figure they've learnt from recent mistakes and have cleaned up their act to restore public confidence in their products.

    It nearly killed me and I overdosed after birth but I went without sushi because of the rice. I know I could make my own but it’s nowhere near the same and is a hassle so I just went without.

    I also avoided subway and anything with salad on it apart from the cafe at work which I trusted. I still stayed away from sliced meats at all cafes.

    At the end of the day, it’s a personal choice.

    1st trimester I lived off cheeseburgers from maccas....one of the only things I could stomach. I ate nando's occasionally also thru out pregnancy.

    Nil, it doesn’t matter what food looks like it or how much turn over they have it doesn’t make the food failsafe, or the people preparing it, so for me it wasn’t worth any risk , OP I’m sure you could make a better sandwich at home (and healthier) than subway !
