PICA

Pica is craving substances with little or no nutritional value. Most pregnancy and pica related cravings involve non-food substances such as dirt or chalk.

According to the Journal of American Dietetic Association there may be a connection to an iron deficiency. Sometimes pica cravings may be related to an underlying physical or mental illness.
