Marlina in Toronto asked:

Why do we get cravings for certain foods, especially when it's for combinations of foods that we normally don't like to eat? My friend is pregnant and she now wants to eat the strangest of things.


I think that that is probably because when you're pregnant then there's a lot of pressure on trying to get the right sort of nutrients and the right balance of nutrients. Therefore that might have an effect and give you these cravings so that you're getting the things your body needs.
