If an expectant mother wants maple syrup on fish fingers, you give her maple syrup on fish fingers. Nothing can get in the way of pregnancy cravings, and we are warning you if anything does!

So, pop on your maternity pants and take a look at 10 of the most common pregnancy cravings. If you spot your kryptonite, don’t go running to the fridge straight away, get in touch via social @MamaMioSkincare and let us know what you crave!


Pickles


Basically, pickles on everything! Pickles on burgers, on sandwiches, on toast and pizza – why not! Plus, it’ll stop others stealing your precious food!


Fruit


You’ll be sure to get your 5 a day if this is your ultimate pregnancy craving! Apples, bananas, pears, watermelons, what’s your downfall?


Crisps/Potato Chips


So many flavours and only nine months to try them all! But why not try reaching for the popcorn instead? It’s a similar texture without the high calorie count!


Eggs


How do you like your eggs in the morning? Here at Mama Mio we are suckers for a poached egg! However, when cooking your favourite omelette, fried or boiled eggs while pregnant, make sure that both the yolk and white are solid!


Chocolate


Pregnant or not, we suffer from chocolate cravings at ALL times!


Ice


That cold sensation as the ice melts and trickles down your throat – we get it! Plus, ice is much healthier than chocolate, but what about frozen chocolate – Ooo chocolate ice-cream (ok, this is getting out of hand now!)


Lemons


Lemons are actually a common pregnancy craving and will get your taste buds tingling!


Chilli


Apparently, chilli is a huge contender in top pregnancy cravings. However, if you suffer from heartburn, chilli may aggravate it so make sure you stick to what you know.


Bacon


Bacon sandwiches, chicken wrapped in bacon, sausages wrapped in bacon, bacon pizzas, bacon salads, bacon pasta bake… I think you get the idea that we LOVE bacon, and so do pregnant women also, according to the top 10 pregnancy cravings!


Spicy Foods


This one has come up time and time again! We recommend that you stick with what you’re used to, because if you suffer from heart burn, spicy food may make this worse.
