Nutritionist and author Judith Brown, who writes college text books on pregnancy nutrition, told TODAY in 2014 that pregnancy cravings are in fact genuine but for most women “they don’t mean much at all.”
“Food cravings are real but when you look at the kinds of food cravings, they’re benign,” she said.Brown said it's okay to indulge in your cravings, provided you don't overdo it."Enjoy your new-found taste for something. Have some fun with it as long as your diet stays good and you’re not gaining too much weight," she said.
Dylan can take heart knowing she's got good company with those cravings. Several people chimed in on Brian's post to share the foods they or their loved ones couldn't get enough of while they were expecting.
Limit digital media for your youngest family members. Avoid digital media for toddlers younger than 18 to 24 months other than video chatting. For children 18 to 24 months, watch digital media with them because they learn from watching and talking with you. Limit screen use for preschool children, ages 2 to 5, to just 1 hour a day of high-quality programing. Co-viewing is best when possible and for young children. They learn best when they are re-taught in the real world what they just learned through a screen.
