According to Dietitian, you can drink but it's better to limit caffeine intake while pregnant to be on the safe side. It's safe to have 2-3 cups of coffee a day, and while any type of chocolate has caffeine, hot chocolate has a lower amount of caffeine.

But Just be sure to drink anything with caffeine in moderation recommends Nutritionist

Yes. Women are generally recommended to cut down on their caffeine intake during pregnancy but the amount of caffeine in a cup of hot chocolate is much less than you find in coffee or even tea.

So keep drinking your hot chocolate. Obviously an excess of anything isn't good for you, so just aim for a balanced healthy diet.

I am diabetic. Can I drink hot chocolate?


if you drink it in moderation you can have hot chocolate with diabetes. It's better to make your own with unsweetened cocoa powder and then use artificial sweeteners to make it taste sweeter. You can use packet hot chocolate but you must read the nutritional information at the back so you know what's in it. You can also buy low-sugar versions.

What is the difference between hot chocolate and cocoa powder?


Although the two names of drinks are used interchangeably, hot chocolate is a drink that's either made from real chocolate melted into milk or with packet hot chocolate powder. Cocoa powder is unsweetened and needs to be combined with sugar to create a sweeter drink.

In general hot chocolate is richer and sweeter than hot cocoa.

Does hot chocolate have caffeine in it? I am looking for alternatives to coffee and tea.


Cocoa solids in chocolate do contain some caffeine so any drink with chocolate in is not going to be caffeine free. But milk chocolate contains a lot less cocoa solids than dark chocolate, so the type of chocolate used to make the drink will significantly alter the amount of caffeine in it.
