    There's a disorder, "Pica", which includes people's having an appetite/cravings for things like dirt and clay.  It can be related to nutrition deficiency and/or mental/neurological disorders and development problems.  Some pregnant women may experience it. It's more common in women and children.   It has also been associated with Autism, among other disorders.
