Pronounced: shuh-TAW-kwe, noun
Notes: I think only US history buffs may get this one
The word sitomania means “an abnormal craving for food”
The word came into English in the late 1800s
Background / Comments
This is another word from Greek: sito- (grain, food) plus -mania (excessive enthusiasm or craze). Because of the word ‘abnormal’ in the definition, I’m not certain if this word is appropriate for pregnancy cravings. Note that there is an opposite — sitophobia (a morbid aversion to food).
