Snooki ate pineapple until her tongue “burned from the acid” during her first pregnancy.
The former Jersey Shore star, real name Nicole Polizzi, shares 21-month-old son Lorenzo with fiancé Jionni LaValle, and the couple are now expecting their second child.
But she’s making sure she keeps her cravings for fruit in check after going overboard the last time around.
“I craved a lot of fruit the first pregnancy, and this time it’s strawberries. [During my first pregnancy], I would eat so much pineapple that my tongue would burn from the acid,” she told Us Weekly.
While she’s not always turning to Italian staples like pasta these days, Snooki insists hearty appetites run in the family.
The 26-year-old says her toddler can really put food away.
“He’s a good eater – he loves everything Italian. He loves to eat garlic and onions. Like, he’ll get an onion and eat it!” she mused.
Despite the focus on food at home, Snooki insists she’s staying healthy and active after having a difficult pregnancy with Lorenzo.
“My first pregnancy, I didn’t do anything. I just sat and ate on the couch and I was literally a whale,” she admitted. “I was so negative, ’cause I just didn’t feel good at all. With this pregnancy, I’m working out and eating healthy. I feel better about life.”
Snooki, whose expecting a baby girl, isn’t the only former Jersey Shore star preparing for a new addition. Her best friend, Jennifer ‘JWoww’ Farley, is also expecting a daughterl with her fiancé Roger Mathews.
