  • I would not see why not...unless there is a reason you need to monitor your foods and drinks.

  • Does it have aspartame in it? A lot of sugar free/diet sodas will have that and as long as you drink it in moderation there shouldn't be a problem, but limit the intake just like you would with caffeine.

  • my issue with Tropicana is that the second ingredient in it is high fructose corn syrup, which is in like everything these days. I would look for a juice that has no added sugar or color like juicy juice.

  • it is in your best interest to always aviod anything with attificial flavors, sugars, colors, and as someone else already mentioned before, high frutose corn syrup--even when you are not pregnant. these ingriedients have no nutritional value and can be damaging to your health. try an all natural alternative, esp. while youre pregnant.
