Could be. Might have to do with hormones. Also, depending on what you're craving, it could be a deficiency in some vitamin or mineral.

For me it kind of does. I'm always thirsty and during those never ending nursing sessions I want things that I can eat easily with one hand and no utensils. So since the kid was born I've eaten a lot of sandwiches and fruits, and I crave them when I'm nursing.

I crave chocolate and sweets soooo badly. I have few cravings while pregnant, but as soon as my milk comes in I'm starving

Breastfeeding increases a craving for sugar.  It's completely normal because it needs it for production.  Google this and you'll find many websites that explain the biochemistry behind it.  :)
