  • Pregnant women crave mustard, chips and ice-cream

    LONDON: Whether it's ice cream and chips, garlic on crackers or brown sauce on everything, nearly 60 per cent of pregnant women admit to having weird cravings.

    Nothing is too bizarre or unusual for some mothers-to-be, according to a survey of 200 British women by a leading baby food company.

    Raw lemons sprinkled with salt and pepper, gingerbread men soaked in fizzy lemon drink and mustard with chips were among some of the unusual cravings.

    But as mothers' cravings became more unusual, their babies' tastes have gained sophistication, with pesto, squid, lemon sole, asparagus soup, papaya and passion fruit now on the kiddie menu.

    "It's fantastic to see that babies are being offered a wider selection of food to expand their taste buds," said Kathrine Colin, of Cow & Gate, which conducted the poll.

    But although kids may be eating better, fewer are doing it with their parents. Only 37 per cent of the women questioned in the survey said their families ate together daily.

    Slightly more than 6 per cent admitted that the whole family only sat down for a meal on special occasions.
