Goat cheese is a great dairy option to include in your diet. It offers a good amount of calcium, and because of the proteins in goats’ milk, goat cheese tends to be a lot easier to digest as well. This is likely good news for those of you who typically find yourselves feeling uncomfortable after eating a slice of pizza.

What it always boils down to when it comes to the consumption of cheese during pregnancy is whether or not it's pasteurized. So if you’re wanting to add goat cheese to your wrap, sandwich, or snack plate, make sure to purchase a pasteurized option and avoid varieties that have a rind.
