Eating nuts during pregnancy
Dear Doc

I am 15 weeks pregnant and would like to know if its okay that I eat nuts. I have read some articles against eating nuts while others recommend it as a healthy protein. Please clear this confusion for me.

Also will peppermint tea be okay to have?

Kind regards

People recommend staying away from nuts if there is an allergy in your family, which the baby could possibly have as well.
Peppermint tea is fine.
