Craving Salty Fries During Pregnancy?

Craving Salty Fries During Pregnancy? - Pregnancy - 2024

Have you found yourself craving Salty Fries during your pregnancy?

Why the craving for salty foods?

During pregnancy, your body produces 50 — yes FIFTY! — percent more blood.

This increase in blood volume can also increase your dietary need for sodium. ⁣⁣
Healthy swap: Rosemary Sweet Potato Fries. Not only are these baked fries DELISH, they pack way more nutrients than your average greasy fries, including vitamins A, C, and B6 — all essential for you and your baby! Sprinkle on some pink Himalayan salt to satisfy those salty cravings.⁣⁣
Does this mean you can’t ever have Fries during pregnancy? Of course not. This is simply to illustrate an option to satisfy a craving that can be slightly more nutritionally beneficial to you and your baby. 🙂 ⁣⁣

Thanks to @juna.moms on Instagram for the great visual – I really want some hot fries now! 😀

  1. When I was pregnant with our eldest I craved KFC fries all the time and hot chips with chicken salt (a weird salt I know). One night I even took the chicken salt container with me because I knew the cafe we were going too didn’t have it as an option.

  2. Let pregnant women eat what the hell they want. 😂 we don’t care about the 30 pounds you gained we care about you and the baby ring happy and healthy (also you will lose it due to breastfeeding) and of course do what’s best for you if swapping makes you happier then do so😊

  3. Except when the baby decides that it’s not gonna let you eat sweet potatoes anymore 😂😂 Sweet potato fries were forever my fav but 14 weeks ago that came crashing down 😂😂

  4. I made this swap with my first pregnancy (loved sweet potatoes so didn’t mind at all) and they made me SO SICK I haven’t eaten sweet potatoes since. That was in 2018 😬 Wasn’t the only food that happened with either lol!

  5. I appreciate the idea here, but sweet potato fries will never replace regular ones for me. I say this at 35 weeks pregnant and a TOTAL French fry monster. 🤣🤣🤣
