Answer:
Eating non-food items like clay, chalk etc. is a very common problem seen during pregnancy. It is known as Pica. It can cause harm to you and baby. These non-food items may contain some toxins or parasites which can cause harm or may have some substances that can interfere with the nutrient absorption in your body.Hence , Firstly inform your doctor about it. Do not feel shy. Secondly get your Iron levels and other nutrients like Calcium levels checked. In case of any deficiency, your doctor will prescribe supplements accordingly. Finally, at time of craving put some chewing gum in your mouth , or take some fruit or drink lots of water or take some tasty milk shake or cup of yogurt. All these will help in curbing your craving. You have to be very firm about it and keep all such items out of your house.
