Snacks for Night Time Cravings during pregnancy

Updated: Sep 10, 2022

Hunger cravings during pregnancy are something that all expecting mothers are familiar with! During pregnancy, your body is going through a lot of hormonal changes and the odd-hour eating can often lead to nausea. When you wake up in the middle of the night, your blood sugar might be too high or too low based on what you ate before.


How to manage nighttime cravings?

  • You can eat small meals spaced at short intervals during the day. And also keep yourself hydrated. Sometimes it so happens that, we mistake thirst for hunger, try drinking water, if it suffices, then you are good to go.

  • Opt for slightly salty and protein-rich snacks instead of going for ice cream or some other sweet treats.

  • You can store cucumbers and carrots to munch on when you feel hungry at night. These two raw veggies are easily digestible, have water content, and have a lot of fibers.

  • If your night cravings have become a routine, then have some light snacks by your bedside for a restful night, like salty crackers, peanut butter, cucumbers, and carrots.
