Results for - Cravings during pregnancy - Did your child grow up loving those foods?

1,880 voters participated in this survey

Cravings during pregnancy are common. As I was growing up, I always heard "What ever you crave, your baby will grow up loving that food". Through the years, myself and many other family members had cravings that translated to be the child's favorite food. Other family members and friends had cravings that ended up having nothing to do with favorite food when the child grew up.

I had a hard time with most food during my pregnancy but craved Taco Bell and cottage cheese (not at the same time or together). My "craving food" was about the only thing that didn't make me feel sick to my stomach. With one family member, it was spaghetti. With another, it was macaroni & cheese. Our children had matching favorites (& still do).

I'm very curious to know if others out there have experienced the same. If you choose "Other", could you add a comment below please? I would love to know what else was out there in cravings.
