  • I don't see why not. They give you all of the nutrients you need and don't have any medications in them.

  • I eat instant breakfast for years, did while I was preggo with both kids and nursing. There isn't caffeine as far as I know but if there is I bet it is less then a cup of coffee.

  • Well are you using it as a main meal, or along with meals to suppliment your nutrition? If you are using it as a main meal for dieting- then you may want to consult your doctor to make sure it is ok.

  • if ur doing the diet thing i would say no, you still need more calories than normal, i would talk to ur dr about that one. but if ur just using them as a lil extra here and there then it's fine, they wont hurt anything
