Most pregnant women experience food cravings during the months of their pregnancy like preferring a certain brand of bacon or double cheese burgers or rocky road ice creams. It is not known why pregnancy brings food cravings, although according to certain specialists these cravings are specialist in nature without medical evidence. For instance, a pregnant mother may not have the urge to have alcohol, and this is beneficial as spirits like beer and wine may affect the physical and mental development of your child.

Some people are of the opinion that a pregnant woman’s desire towards certain foods like salted potato chips is the natural way to maintain the body’s sodium levels. However, it is not a possibility that the cells in our body express the nutritional deficiencies into cravings. Longing for a certain food distinguishes the cravings from those in non expecting women.
