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
  • milkshake
  • peanut butter on toast
  • slice of veggie pizza
