I think 'everything in moderation'. You sound like you're eating a healthy diet - maybe try and substitute some of the chocolate with dried fruit?? Asda do these bags of mixed raisins/blueberries etc and some of them have yoghurt on. I've tried to eat them sometimes to curb the sugar craving! However, chocolate has been my complete downfall while i've been pregnant, but then i used to eat chocolate when i fancied before i was pregnant anyway. I woulnt worry too much, i think if you were eating KFC or mcdonalds everyday you would need to worry, as they are full of hydrogenated fats (the bad ones!!) x
