Editorial Reviews

Review

Caroline M. Apovian, MD, FACP, FACN
“As nutrition specialists we often see postpregnancy patients and wish they had received good nutrition counseling prior to and during pregnancy. This guide should be on the bookshelves of all obstetricians as they counsel their pregnant patients. It is a must-have for all pregnant patients who want to have a healthy peripartum experience.”

Diane Snyder, MD, OBGYN
“As an obstetrician this is a welcome resource for our patients. We often wish we had more time during prenatal visits to review healthy eating and recommendations for adequate nutrition. This book is a welcome addition!”

Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
Eating for Pregnancy has features that distinguish it from other books in the pregnancy category, including a family approach to eating and cooking during pregnancy, diabetic exchanges, an extensive chapter on vegetarian cooking, and tips for coping with morning sickness. It’s a book for motherhood in the 21st century.”

Diane Forley, chef-owner of Verbena Restaurant, New York City

New Parents Magazine
“Every pregnant woman knows that what she eats impacts the health of her baby. But coming up with healthy menus day in and day out can be as daunting as delivery itself. For well-meaning moms everywhere, the simple solution is Eating for Pregnancy. . . . If your idea of the perfect meal is equal parts easy, delicious and nutritious, this book is for you.”

Saginaw News
“Finally . . . a cookbook for mothers-to-be. . . . A new cookbook that offers nutrition guidelines for moms-to-be and includes recipes the entire family will enjoy.”

Monadnock Ledger

Publishers Weekly
“Delicately balancing optimum and unnecessary weight gain…simple yet flavorful dishes… an overwhelming amount of information.”

Washington Parent Magazine
“It's the subtitle that makes Eating for Pregnancy: An Essential Guide to Nutrition with Recipes for the Whole Family so special. Not only does the book address mom's needs, but also those of those who cook and dine with her."

Bellaonline.com
“A wonderful book jam-packed with more than 150 nutrient-dense recipes that are guaranteed to become family favorites…Has many marvelous main courses to choose from, no matter what you’re craving…And if you’re craving tons of sweet things then Chapter 6 has recipes for desserts and other sweet treats that will satisfy your cravings without packing on the pounds...You’ll probably still be making and enjoying meals from Eating for Pregnancy long after your pregnancy has become a distant memory.”

I have to admit that I'm not much of a cook, but this book makes it simple to eat and cook, yes cook at home, during pregnancy. Healthy recipes and practical nutrition advice are the key. I especially love the last chapter called nine months later. Sometimes it's hard to imagine your pregnancy ever ending, but this book takes you beyond delivery into healthy eating with menus and illustrated exercises. It's just good solid nutrition advice for the whole family. Love it!

Eating for Pregnancy: The Essential Nutrition guide and cookbook is a wonderful tool for all women, especially pregnant women. Whether you know a lot or know nothing about healthy eating for mommy and baby, this book has something for everyone. The cookbook is not only full of delicious recipes (who says you have to be pregnant to make them?!), but also very helpful information on foods the baby needs and that your body needs to help sustain the pregnancy and keep you healthy. Along with these delicious recipes that are easy to make and are what I would consider "normal". The recipes are not flamboyant, but everyday pantry items or easy to find in you local grocery store. There is also a ton of helpful information to help answer any pregnancy questions in regards to your diet and what you should or shouldn't be eating. Some of these questions include; "What should I be eating? What is dangerous and why? If I eat this how is it benefiting the baby and I?" There is also a section for your last 9 months after baby is born. The exercises and eating tips are designed to help you loose the baby weight and regain your body!

This book is truly for those considering having a baby to those who have had their baby and everyone in between! Among the many helpful tidbits of information you will find helpful list that give sources of fiber, vitamin C, and other important nutrients. There is information on how much fish, water, vitamins, and other items that you should or shouldn't be consuming. The recipes are in convenient categorized sections and come complete in a seven day menu planner.

Catherine Jones and Rose Ann Hudson are a winning combination.

"Eating For Pregnancy" is the "how to" with easy, NUTRITIOUS, and delicious ideas and recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. As a practitioner of Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine, I specialize in female fertility and Women's health. Nutrition is emphasized with all of my patients and I treat many, many women in the course of their pregnancy. The importance of eating whole foods can't be emphasized enough--for mother and baby. This will be a great tool for my patients. Why wait til pregnancy? This book can help you now. "Your first wealth is your health." It is beneficial to all women and can assist in all aspects of reproductive health. Easy exercise routines, high risk and post pregnancy tips are included,too.

Yes, recipes are family friendly and they will enjoy and benefit from these menus.

I love this book becuse it is easy to read, packed with fabulous and easy to use recipes that most women can follow. The nutritional information is presented in an easy to read, easy to understand format, highlighting the key nutritional components of each recipe. Vitamin and mineral sources are listed and condensed in chart form.
This book is very well researched and presented.
It is a labor of love. A great gift for yourself and your health. A great gift for your friends and family members. Even your doctor may need a copy to learn to how to zero in on the better health of his/her patients. This is a great read, and reference.
