Any pregnant mummy can vouch for that feeling; that weird, crazy, irresistible late night food craving you just can't stop fantasising about!
Experts are quite clueless as to why these cravings actually happen during pregnancy; and they are usually attributed to hormonal changes, and to nature's way of making sure the baby gets the desired nutrients.
