Do your kids like the foods you once 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.

  • I didn't have any cravings, just aversions.

    The foods which I couldn't stand and couldn't eat...they're eating just fine.

  • i craved mac n cheese and my son only likes it sometimes. but when he was younger he LOVED it. its probably just because he's 3 and will only eat things when he wants to. haha

  • Mine are 8 & 5, and they seem to like most of the foods I craved while pregnant, but they're not the favorite foods or anything. However, I do use that sometimes to get them to eat something. If they eat something we haven't had in a while, and they want to claim they don't like it, I tell them they ate it while they were in my tummy and loved it. The 8 yr old is starting to catch on and give me that "who are you trying to kid, mom?" look, but the 5 yr old totally goes for it. He chows down after I tell him that.

  • W/ one kid it was Mexican food and sweets, cupcakes, ice cream, etc and he LOVES both. Other kid was salad and fish and he loves both. Odd.
