Which craving could be a sign something important is missing from your diet?

Posted on Aug 29, 2012

a)      Chocolate

b)      Carrots

c)       Ice

d)      Cheeseburgers

The correct answer is (c).   Food cravings are normal when you’re expecting, and it’s generally OK to give in to them. Just don’t overdo it. But craving non-food items such as ice, laundry detergent, paint chips, or clay, may mean you have something called pica. Tell your doctor right away.  And it could mean your body may be lacking important nutrients.
