Community Questions - Pregnancy Cravings!

"I'm having the most random cravings in my pregnancy (22 weeks). Why does this happen?! Any tips? I want to eat healthier but all I want are ready salted crisps."


We've all been there! Pregnancy cravings are bizarre, especially when it's foods you wouldn't normally eat. It's said that around 85% of pregnancy women experience food cravings throughout their pregnancy, so you aren't alone! There are so many theories as to why we crave certain foods when we're pregnant, ranging from nutrients your body is asking for to changes in our hormones but there doesn't seem to be a definitive answer unfortunately! Hormonal changes can make certain foods more appealing for example higher levels of progesterone can make sweeter foods more appealing and taste better whereas an increase in blood volume could make you prefer to eat saltier foods.


We know that when we're pregnant we want to be eating a balanced diet to make sure we are nourishing our body with all the essential vitamins and minerals it needs. However, eating some of the foods you are craving in moderation is fine, if they are safe to eat during pregnancy. You can find our full Pregnancy Nutrition Guide here.


Alongside eating a healthy, balanced diet, taking a good quality pregnancy supplement helps to ensure you are getting all the vitamins and minerals needed to supporting your growing baby. Our favourite Pregnancy Supplement is the Feel Pregnancy - full write up can be found here.
