From the Back Cover

Quick Answers for a Healthy Start A healthy pregnancy starts with a well-balanced diet, but there?s much more to know. For example: True or False?
  1. You need to eat an extra 500 calories a day when pregnant.
  2. Iron needs triple during pregnancy.
  3. A high-fiber diet is important during pregnancy.
  1. False. Pregnant women require 300 extra calories a day and nursing women need an extra 500 calories a day. You?ll find more on calories and weight gain in Chapter 1 and nutrition tips while breast-feeding in Chapter 9.
  2. False. Your need for iron doubles during pregnancy. Still, it can be difficult to get this much iron from food alone. That?s why you should read more about iron in Chapter 3.
  3. True. Fiber helps prevent constipation, a common occurrence during pregnancy. Learn tips for managing constipation, morning sickness, and other discomforts of pregnancy in Chapter 7.
From the latest information on vitamin and mineral supplements and exercise to advice on losing weight after your baby is born, this handy book covers it all.

More About the Author

I am a mother, author, and registered dietitian. My passion is nutrition, especially when it comes to helping women (and men!) prepare to have the healthiest babies well before they conceive, and to coaching moms about how to feed their growing families while nurturing themselves, too. As a mother, I know that most of us act as the "gate keepers," of the household (my apologies to the dads out there who do the same), deciding what foods to buy and to prepare. Our job is one of the most important of all because we're setting the stage for our child's health, in the short-term and the long run. Like most working moms, I'm busy, and I am always looking for great tips and simple solutions for feeding my family the most nutritious foods, and that's the stuff of all of my books, including my latest, Expect the Best, Your Guide to Healthy Eating Before, During, and After Pregnancy. If you're looking for tasty and delicious recipes, Expect the Best has 50 of them that the entire family will love. And, check out my blog at dietchallenge.usatoday.com for a new family-friendly recipe every week.
