10 Food Not to eat during monsoon

Street Food

Street food may not always adhere to hygiene standards, increasing the risk of foodborne illnesses.

Leafy Vegetable

Leafy greens like spinach and cabbage may contain dirt and contaminants, so it's best to avoid them during the monsoon unless thoroughly cleaned and cooked.

Fried Food

Excessive consumption of fried foods can lead to indigestion and weight gain. Opt for lighter cooking methods.

Raw Seafood

Raw or undercooked seafood can carry harmful bacteria and parasites. Stick to well-cooked seafood.

Cut Fruit

Pre-cut fruits sold by street vendors may not be properly washed or stored, risking contamination.

Unpasteurized Dairy

Avoid unpasteurized milk and dairy products, as they can carry harmful microorganisms.


Wild mushrooms can be toxic, so it's safer to avoid them unless you are certain they are safe to eat.

Non-Vegetarian Delicacie

Be cautious with non-vegetarian dishes, especially if you're unsure about the source and quality of the meat.

Ice Cream and Shake

Dairy-based desserts from unreliable sources can lead to foodborne illnesses. Opt for packaged or reputable brands.

Stale Food

Leftover or stale food can harbor bacteria. Consume freshly prepared meals and avoid reheating food multiple times.
