One pleasure you don't need to deny yourself when you're expecting is cheese, and our pregnancy-friendly selection has been created with careful reference to the NHS guidelines

Our mellow Cornish Yarg, drop-dead fantastic Bath Blue and subtle, fresh Rosary amount to a perfect trio. Adding biscuits and a classic chutney makes for a self-contained mini-feast. It's your chance to delight any cheese-loving parent-to-be, knowing we've screened out anything unsuitable.

Pregnancy-friendly

The NHS advice on eating cheese while pregnant is quite easy to sum up:

  • DON'T eat any soft 'mould-ripened' cheeses. This means the brie and camembert family (and would also include goat's cheeses like Capricorn, White Nancy, ewe's milk ones like Litte Ryding etc). Basically: anything with that type of downy white rind.
  • DON'T eat soft blue cheeses such as Gorgonzola or Roquefort - this includes cheeses such as Helford Blue and Beenleigh Blue.
  • DON'T eat any unpasteurised cheeses.

Everything

else is fine - i.e. all pasteurised hard cheeses, including hard blues, and soft, fresh, rindless cheeses. Our selection consists of:

  • Yarg, a hard, pasteurised cheese (ok);
  • Bath Blue, a stilton-style hard blue cheese (ok), and
  • Rosary, a rindless soft goat's cheese (ok).
