  • nothing really.
    if you eat it, then you eat it.
    as long as you're not ingesting alcohol or dugs your baby should be fine :)

  • Why would you want to eat plain flour? Weird. We eat flour in all sorts of foods, but I've never wanted to eat it plain. Hmmm.

  • There's nothing dangerous about eating plain flour, from a food safety perspective. If you're craving flour or other odd things, you should talkk to your doctor about it, as it might be pica.

  • Look up Pica, its where pregnant woman have cravings for non food items, its usually caused by a vitamin or mineral deficiancy SO, be sure your taking your vitamins and getting a diet rich in vitamins and minerals...I would eat ice, LOTS of ice, and that is considered a form of pica.
