Frequently Asked Questions

I now have gestational diabetes and wonder if I can still use Preggie Pops?

You may want to order sugarfree Queasy Pops. They are available in two flavors: ginger and sour raspberry. Splenda is used to sweeten these popular Pops and they have 0 net carbs.

Otherwise, since you have gestational diabetes you are in a bit of a quandary. Gestational diabetes is nothing to take casually. You will need to take your healthcare provider and dietician's advice on how many carbohydrates (for example; sugar, brown rice syrup) you can safely allow yourself. Always listen to your healthcare team. Many pregnant women have glucose intolerance, which is less severe but still requires you to be careful with sugars and starches. Our pops do have carbohydrates; in fact, this is part of what makes them work for some women.

Each pop contains 8 grams of carbohydrate. This is approximately one half of a carbohydrate serving, if you are following the 15 grams of carbohydrate to a serving method. Therefore, depending on how many carbohydrates you are allowed you could substitute a Preggie Pop if you were feeling nauseated.

One concern would be that you don't use so many Preggie Pops that you are always substituting a simple sugar (lollipop) for your carbohydrate serving. Simple sugars are good for energy but do not contain the vitamins, minerals or fiber that a more complex carbohydrate like beans, whole grain bread or a potato would give you. On the other hand, if you are going to bring that potato up later, it won't do you much good either, so play it by ear and keep close tabs with your health care providers so you will have a safe and healthy pregnancy.
