Some women experience cravings for certain foods during pregnancy; we've all heard about pickles and ice cream.
But some cravings should be reported to your healthcare provider.
Strange cravings for non-food items, such as ice, clay or starch may indicate a need for certain nutrients. Be sure to report any of these cravings to your healthcare provider immediately. They can usually be stopped with a change in your diet.
For regular food cravings, try healthy snacks like:
- raisins and nuts
- raw vegetables and dip
- crackers and cheese
- yogurt and fresh fruit
- cereal, with or without milk
- peanut butter on toast
- slice of veggie pizza
