Dear Kasandra
Cravings for sweet foods indicate an imbalance in the serotonin levels of the brain. To increase brain serotonin levels you need to ensure that you are eating sufficient carbohydrates with a low glycaemic index (GI). Click on 'Diet' and 'Weight loss' and 'The right approach' and read the articles on the GI. Sweet foods like fruit, or even boiled sweets, jelly babies or marshmallows eaten in small quantities can combat these cravings.
