Do your kids like the foods you craved while prego with them ??

My mom ate KitKats 24/7 when pregnant with me and guess what I LOVE KitKats they are my favorite !

With my DD I craved spicy mexican food (chimichangas not sure if that's spelled right) and she is now 2 and also LOVES them which surprises me since they are really spicy the ones I eat.

I am currently 14 weeks and I LOVE again spicy foods just wondering if this baby will also like spicy stuff later on.

  • Yes...I have often wondered if I was the only one. With baby 1 I craved milk, steaks, and salads. LOL My oldest is a healthy eater and loves all those things. With baby 2 I craved some junk, burgers and ice cream and spinach. My middle daughter is the same - spinach is the ONLY vegetable she will eat. Baby 3 I craved breads - bagels and cheese toast. LOL my third daughter loves breads - her favorite snack is bread and butter.

  • Sort of... I loved dipping french fries in milk shakes (made the Purple Kid's daddy stop at burger king ON THE WAY to Tripler while my labour was 2 minutes apart, so I could have a shake and fries, which I later of course threw up).

    The Purple kid loves tater tots dipped into what I think are "Blizzards"... like a milkshake only a lot thicker.

    Coincidence? I think not!

  • Yup. With Ja I craved Kale, spinach, and ice-cream. Overall he eats pretty good and will make healthy choice.
    With my daughter I swear that I should have known I was pregnant cause I started to buy Entiments (but I thought it was the stress of separting). All pregnancy I craved sweets and junk etc.
    And guess who will always choose the cupcake over the veggie

  • I will say my second child sure does love the stuff I craved. I ate pickles, and ice like there was no tomorrow. Now my daughter eats them the same way. She eats the heck out of ice, and pickles.

  • My daughter likes just about everything, And had cravings for thai food, and sweets with her, she especially likes the sweets. With my son didn't crave anything really, maybe that's why he's picky eater.
