Will my pregnancy food cravings go away?

When will my cravings for weird food go away? Does the food that I eat while I’m pregnant impact the types of food my baby will prefer after she is born? Can I make her like what I like?

Weird food cravings will most likely go away after you have had your baby; however you may find that your preferences for foods changes if those foods made you sick during your pregnancy. You may not like those foods anymore.

Although it would be nice to train our kids before they are born to prefer fruits and vegetables, you can’t make your baby like vegetables just because that is what you like to eat. Food that you eat during pregnancy does not determine what your baby will prefer after it is born.
