What to eat while Pregnant – Why do pregnant women crave certain foods?

Why do pregnant women crave certain foods?


 


According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, the desire for “pickles and ice cream” and other cravings might be caused by changes in nutritional needs during pregnancy. The fetus needs nourishment and a woman’s body absorbs and metabolizes nutrients differently while pregnant.



These changes help ensure normal development of the baby and fill the demands of breastfeeding once the baby is born.
