Is bread bad for fertility or pregnancy? Bread seems to be high on many peoples evil food list at the moment. But unless you have coeliac disease or a wheat allergy or intolerance, bread- dark whole grain as part of balanced diet, is perfectly compatible with a fertility and pregnancy diet.

In fact, the answer is rather the on the contrary. Wholegrain bread is a staple that features prominently in the Mediterranean diet and Nordic diet which are both associated with positive fertility and pregnancy outcomes.

Problems do occur when people eat loads of refined white flour breads, when they have a passion for sweet toppings like honey or jams, or when their bread intake is not balanced and they are too much bread at the expense of fruits, vegetables and other food groups.
