Hot Cheetos are generally okay to eat during pregnancy when consumed in moderation.
If you find yourself in a sleep-deprived state, craving Flamin’ Hot Cheetos after an unsuccessful night with your pregnancy pillow, rest assured that this spicy snack can be your relief—at least occasionally.
What’s important to know, however, is that pregnant or not, many heavily processed foods contain additives that may have negative implications on our health over time. So it’s best to make sure you’re not consuming these foods all the time.
For these reasons, it might be helpful to have some alternative snacks on hand that help curb cravings just as well. Roasted chickpeas, kale chips, and tortilla chips are all snacks that have healthy versions that can be found at the grocery or made at home with just a few simple ingredients.
