Top 05 Vegetables to Avoid During Pregnancy

1. Unwashed Vegetables

The biggest concern with any vegetable during pregnancy is the risk of toxoplasmosis from soil contamination.

2. Sprouts

Raw sprouts, including alfalfa, clover, radish, and mung bean sprouts, can harbor harmful bacteria such as E.

3. Excessive Consumption of Vitamin A-Rich Vegetables

While not typically a problem, consuming very high amounts of vitamin A-rich vegetables like carrots or sweet potatoes can lead to vitamin A toxicity. 

4. Raw or Undercooked Green Leafy Vegetables

Raw leafy greens like spinach, kale, and lettuce can also be sources of foodborne illness. 

5. Licorice Root

While not a common vegetable, licorice root is often found in foods and herbal remedies.
