Licquorice is virtually a food group in The Netherlands and I've not noticed the children more "anti-social" than those of other nationalities.

What??? MY pregnancy book specifically recommends black licorice to help boost iron levels. I've been munching a bar every day to this end. Not because they're yummy you understand... grin

Vanilla Lifting books is also inadvisable. Have you considered "just sitting" - this is the new recommended path. wink

Its mental isn't it. How many more things can possible be bad for you?

oh how strange. Normally I adore liquorice but I've gone right off it since being pregnant! I reckon your body just tells you what it needs and what it doesn't eh. Shame mine keeps telling me it must have more strawberry milk and other sweet things! wink

Great. I've been devouring the stuff. I've had real cravings for it.

Oh bugger that! I'm already cutting out enough nice food and licorice is one of the few things to keep the queasiness at bay!
