100 recipes to keep moms-to-be on the road to tasty, proper prenatal nutrition

The list of foods pregnant women should avoid is not only long but also confusing. Pregnancy Cooking & Nutrition For Dummies gives you the lowdown on what to eat, what not to eat, and why. Additionally, it discusses how those with special diets (like vegetarians and those with food allergies) can still follow good nutritional guidelines and address their unique nutritional needs — as well as those of their unborn child.

  • Oh, baby! — find out about the nutrients that are critical to your baby's development, from folate and fat to calcium and carbs

  • Touch on taboos — get the nitty-gritty on how to gain the proper amount of weight during pregnancy and ways you can manipulate your diet to overcome nausea, gas, and other unmentionables

  • Get cookin' — discover 100 delicious, healthy recipes, from breakfast meals and appetizers to salads, main dishes, and desserts

  • Take special note — find expert guidance on special dietary considerations during pregnancy for gestational diabetes, high blood pressure, or other problems that may crop up

Open the book and find:

  • The foods you should focus on (and avoid)

  • 100 recipes for every meal of the day

  • How to gain baby weight slowly and steadily

  • The 411 on how diet affects fertility

  • Tips on figuring out where your calories should come from

  • Guidance on dealing with side effects of pregnancy

  • How to care for yourself nutritionally post-delivery

  • Ways to safely get back to your pre-pregnancy weight

Learn to:

  • Prepare and enjoy tasty meals while maintaining nutritional balance

  • Cook up 100 recipes that are good for you and your baby

  • Identify and address the nutritional needs of yourself and your unborn child

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I LOVE this book. I am sitting here shocked by all the valuable information this contains. I thought that I had read all that I needed to know about pregnancy nutrition based on plenty of sources I have previously sought out. However, this book has shown me that I was very wrong in that assumption. I discovered that I was often consuming things that are really hurting me and my unborn children.

Did you know that agave nectar is believed to stimulate contractions? I will spare you the details on why, but I REALLY NEEDED to know that. I also found out that it is a MYTH that sugar intake causes you to get diabetes (a huge relief)! I even appreciate learning how I can use my quinoa to make healthy bars to snack on.

This book should be given to every woman on this planet. It "walks" you through specific aspects of nutrition from pre-conception to post pregnancy (breast-feeding, formula issues, weight loss, exercise...) I was looking for up-to-date info. regarding specific herbs, common problem foods, meal plans, etc. I found this and a whole lot more.

This is comprehensive wisdom-so much info. contained in this book. I started to wonder if perhaps the title should have been more expansive to give it justice. At the same time, this is a fun, easy read.

I have already begun to make positive changes in my diet and in the way I shop and feed my family based on these recommendations. I have saved a lot of worry and money, because I now have confidence that I am making healthy, informed decisions.

Additionally, I found critical advice for mothers in the "special considerations" category (teen moms/cancer survivors/moms of multiples).

Good nutrition during pregnancy is important so moms can have a healthy pregnancy, delivery & baby. With so much information out there, it can be overwhelming to know where to turn. Now with this new book - everything is finally in one easy-to-read place! The information is written by Tara Gidus, a registered dietitian and trusted-source of food & nutrition information. Plus, I love that the author has firsthand experience - she is a healthy and active mom of 2 young boys. If you are looking for a no-nonsense book about what to eat, what not to eat and over 100 delicious recipes for pregnancy - this is the perfect resource for you. PS: I will be getting this for friends & family when they announce their pregnancy; No gift better than that of healthy eating!

This book is awesome!!! It has tons of recipes and tips for staying healthy during pregnancy. I used it while I was pregnant, and there are so many good recipes in here! Now that I'm not pregnant anymore, I will still use this for the recipes! My copy is practically exploding with bookmarks. I'm vegetarian and most of the recipes are adaptable. Here are some of the recipes I thought sounded really good:

Quinoa nut mix
Crunchy garbanzo beans
Roasted beet and pistachio salad
Nana's moussaka
Spaghetti with clam sauce
Thai scallops with noodles
Garden fresh paella
Giant beans with spinach and feta
Sesame noodle salad
Baked ziti with tofu
Zucchini patties
Spanakopita
Sweet potato hash
Mixed berry frozen yogurt
Fudgy peppermint black bean brownies!!!!!!!!! *These are AWESOME*
Fruit cookie pizza

From the special 10-minutes-or-less section:
Three-bean artichoke salad
Havarti pear grilled cheese on pumpernickel
Grilled bananas

Again, this book is AWESOME. The first half is nutrition info, the second half is recipes, each with nutritional info listed. I checked out similar books when I was pregnant, but this was probably my favorite one.

Format: Paperback
This book is a terrific resource for all new and seasoned moms who are pregnant. It provides great recipes and cooking tips to help busy, tired, pregnant women get food on the table without laboring over a hot stove. What makes this book extra special is that it's written by a mother of two boys, and a registered dietitian. Tara Gidus used her professional and personal experiences to put the book together in the DUMMIES format to make eating healthfully and deliciously less daunting. It also goes well beyond just recipes (though they all look great--full disclosure: I contributed one), and explains what to eat and what to avoid when at home or on the go; how much weight women should gain while pregnant; common symptoms (what they are and how to manage or avoid them); and so much more. The book is also a great resource for mothers after their babies are born--it can help them get back in shape and continue to eat healthfully and feed their families well.

I ordered several copies of this book from Amazon to give to pregnant friends and relatives, and only wish I had this resource when I was pregnant with my two sons 10 and 14 years ago! The book is a must have, and something you won't regret buying.
