Slap Chips
i am having the most terrible craving for slap chips - i am currently 25 weeks pg. The last 2 weeks I have had slap chips almost every day either for lunch or for dinner. Although I try to eat as healthily as possible apart from this daily binge on slap chips, i am aware that this could affect my weight gain and my cholesterol levels. So far I have gained 7.5kgs ...my main concern is not for me though, it is for my unborn child. Will eating slap chips once a day affect the baby's cholesterol or heart or any other consequences I should be aware of?
thanks

It will not affect your baby, only make it more difficult for you to lose weight later.
