Q:

I am 23 weeks pregnant and for past 2-3 days I am badly craving for chok (black board chok), mitti ( clay ). I just keep on eating small amount. Is eating this is safe during pregnancy? also take calcium tablet.

Please don't eat the chalk. It's not edible and can cause infection as it's not a food item. Speak to your doctor and discuss increasing the calcium supplement as at times a calcium deficiency results in a chalk craving.
