It is important to have well balanced meals during pregnancy. There are a lot of essential minerals, nutrients as well as vitamins that the developing fetus requires in pregnant moms. In general, the foods are safe, although there are certain foods you need to avoid during pregnancy. These are as follows:

Raw meat: uncooked sea food, beef or poultry are the foods that need to be avoided as they run the risk of contaminating your system with bacteria, salmonella and toxoplasmosis.

Deli meat: These are said to be contaminated with listeria that can result in miscarriage. It can actually cross the placenta and reach the baby, infecting it with blood poisoning and infection. This is life threatening. Take deli meat when it is cooked until steaming.
