During Pregnancy cravings can be a nuisance as well as a boon in a woman’s life. Craving can change by the minute, falling prey to everyone of your cravings can turn out to be a menace. The joy of pregnancy comes with the assortments of food that you get to have. You do not need to be a foodie to relish every ounce of mouth watering food you take in. These are a few common food that expecting mothers crave immensely:

1. Chocolates

Chocolates touch the ‘soul’, so do not feel guilty about diving into a bar of chocolates. Try indulging in low-fat chocolate that will help you feel better about consuming it. Chocolates do not harm your baby. In case you have second doubts, consult a doctor.

Ice creams

A pregnant woman with a tub of ice cream is a common image that floods your screen if you type in ‘pregnancy cravings’. This is quite a common craving that women tend to go through. Ice-creams are not harmful to your baby so do not worry about digging into that tub of joy!

3. Chips

Junk food can take a huge compartment of your cravings. Try and slow down on a number of chips you take in while you are pregnant. Reduce the amount of oily potato chips you dig into. Instead, look for supplements such as baked chips.

Craving meat during pregnancy is common, too. Meat, chicken in particular, is rich in proteins that help in the better development of your baby. Chicken tikkas, kebabs, and curries will start to taste like heaven.
