    I was given a pregnancy book which states that pregnant women should avoid whippy and 'soft' ice creams.
    I was wondering what counts as 'soft' ice cream?

    they mean stuff like the cones from an ice cream van and mc flurrys basically that kind of stuff. tho ive had a mcflurry while pg. its just cos of the risk of listeria from the machines not being cleaned properly.

    So soft scoop ice cream from a supermarket is likely to be safe?

    woudnt worry too much hun, this is my 3rd pregnancy and i have eaten ice cream with all 3 its only been this time around that i hear people are told to avoid certain ice cream.....i dont eat from ice cream van anyways, but i eat mcflurrys and all other sorts of ice cream from supermarket and its never hurt me or any of my kids

    i was only ever told to avoid ice cream abroad in my 2nd pregnancy as its more likey to be made from goats milk abroad rather than cows which is a no no

    im happily eating ice cream as my mw has not told me i cant :dance:xx

    Ice cream vans are meant to be the worst research has shown numerous vans to have not cleaned the pipes adequately and have traces of e-coli and salmonella. McFlurrys and milkshakes are made with UHT and/or pasteurized milk and are ok. x
