Is it true: What the mother craves during pregnancy will be the childs favorite food?

my mom ate a lot of potatoes, baked and mashed and fried just everything potatoes and that’s my Favorite Food. I was just wondering if this has been true for anyone else.

Don’t know if its a fact or not but here is my experience
with my daughter i ate a lot of breakfast type foods -cereal, oatmeal, toast and she can eat breakfast for dinner…

with my son-i had to have a burrito from Moe’s and Ice Cream from Cold Stone…He loves Moe’s (i wont eat there since ive had him) and who doesn’t like Cold Stone LOL

With this one I have to have chocolate milk and pop tarts-Due Jan 6, 2010…keep ya posted LOL

    Apparently, starting in the second trimester, this has been documented, yes. So I’m putting myself (and the baby) on a veggie diet :)

    i think it depends b/c my mom said she ate a lot of bean type stuff, and while i like beans, they’re not my favorite. but with my sister she ate a lot of fruit, and my sis loves and eats lots of fruit. so i don’t know…
