Cookies, hot dogs, pebbled ice and peaches. No, this is not your toddler’s wish for must-have eats during the day; this is what some of our pregnant friends actually craved during their pregnancies!

Cravings are a real part of pregnancy for many women. According to WebMD: “No one really knows why pregnancy cravings occur, though there are theories that it represents some nutrient that the mother may be lacking — and the crave is the body’s way of asking for what it needs,” says Andrei Rebarber, MD.


If you are just trying to satisfy a nutrient your body is lacking, or just want to eat something sweet, we can’t get over how random and entertaining these cravings are!
