Now although this post is intended to inform pregnant women of the best pastries in Paris, let me be clear that you don’t technically have to be pregnant to try these French pastries. In fact, I would suggest that you sample a few of these desserts so you can sympathize with what pregnant women have to go through.
Paris, the City of Light and culinary de-lights….except when you’re pregnant.
If thinking of all the quintessential French foods that are off limits during your pregnancy is making you want to cancel your flight, don’t despair!
I’ve devised a list of delicious French dishes that are safe to eat during pregnancy:
1. Croque monsieur (ham sandwich smothered in gruyère cheese*)

Without question, my biggest craving while I was pregnant in Paris was for savoury crêpes. To be specific, I wanted a jambon et emmental (ham and swiss cheese) crêpe.
