Remember that you and your baby’s health is at stake here…Most physicians will tell you that the majority of cravings is okay because your body is only demanding what is requires BUT in your “cravings”, just remember to eat a whole lot of grains and vegetables – especially the kind, which contains a lot of calcium, folic acid, iron and protein; all of which your baby needs to stay healthy!
