    Food Cravings During Pregnancy

    From pickles to ice creams, stories abound about the food cravings of pregnant women. The cravings are certainly real, but they rarely reflect any true nutritional problem. The one exception is craving ice, which may be a sign of iron-deficiency anemia.

    Re: Food Cravings During Pregnancy

    Please explain "The one exception is craving ice, which may be a sign of iron-deficiency anemia." How would craving ice be a sign of iron deficiency when ice is only H20 and does not contain high levels of iron? I am pregnant and would like to know.

    My mother used to like to crunch on ice all the time but I put it down to the heat and habit more than a deficiency. Do you have a source for the relationship between ice cravings and low iron?

    Re: Food Cravings During Pregnancy

    yeah, i'm also perplexed as to what the connection between craving ice and high-deficiency anemia. i'm an anemic but i don't like ice alone that much, i'd prefer ice cream, iced watermelon shake, flavored ice-shake and all that yummy stuff.
