Foodie Goodie | Eat, Drink, and Crave Healthy!

Constant food cravings are normal during the early stages of pregnancy. When I was pregnant with my son, my food cravings varied from the 'normal' ones such as chicken cordon bleu, tamarind candies, and siomai drizzled with lots of calamansi; to the more 'outlandish' food combinations such as green mangoes and mayonnaise, and carbonara with salted egg. Crazy, right?

Occasionally, I would crave for junk food like potato chips and the like. However, I do not want to risk my then-unborn baby's health just so I could satisfy my desire for overly salty, fatty, unhealthy food.

Fast-forward to 2017. If I were pregnant now and craving for junk food, I'd probably grab a bag of Crave Healthy and eat to my heart's desires.
Crave Healthy!

Nice, nutritious options! I try to eat healthy, with a few cheats here and there. I'm sure it's a bigger struggle to eat healthy while pregnant.

Do you know if these chips are available abroad as well? My pregnant sister would love them!

It's the season here and we've been craving sweet corn! These chips would be a good replacement until we can get fresh!
