Am 5 months pregnant with anaemia due to iron deficiency. I am always craving for dried clay soil which is said to contribute to anaemia. I am taking my b vitamins and iron supplements but still crave for dirt. What can I eat or do to minimise this habit?

Make sure you eat frequent high protein meals. Take good multivitamin and drink lots of water. Can you ask you doctor for advice or see a nutritionist.
