You have mentioned here for '10 super snacks' to have 'Soft cheese and banana platter' but I was under the impression that you could not have soft cheese as it is unpasteurised? If there are any cheeses, please can you confirm which would be safe to eat?

Hi, Yes there is a misconception that all soft cheese is unpasteurised but in fact most of it is pasteurised. Just check the labels before you buy.
Cheeses you can eat in pregnancy are :
Cream cheese including Mascepone,
Processed cheese spreads.
Hope you enjoy your new found cheese freedom!
