Customer Reviews

The pages are nice and glossy with lots of color and pictures.
Hime
To me, the book reads like an encyclopedia, not too overwhelming, easy to find the information you need and very well organized/broken down into sub-sections.
Mrs.CH3
It gives you great tips of what to eat to get those needed nutrients and how details of how much healthy nutrients you are getting per food item.

When you are expecting, there is an overwhelming amount of rules: you can do this, you can't do that, eat this/not that... and there is an equally overwhelming number of books to read.

When I was pregnant with my daughter I bought and quickly returned many-a books. There was only 1 pregnancy book that I kept and if this below was released when I was pregnant, this would have been a book that I kept as well.

Jonny Bowden and Allison Tannis have put together a reference for moms-to-be to help you figure out what foods are best to eat during your pregnancy. Broken down into trimester, this book is very well organized and does not require you to read it cover-to-cover. Rather, you can read it on a need-to-know basis.

Not only do the authors fill you in on foods that you probably never thought of eating during your pregnancy that will make a difference in your baby's life, but they tell you why. They don't just say eat this and not that- they give you the medical reasons (in layman's terms) of why you should eat this or that and what good it will do for you and your baby.

The book includes "fast fact" boxes that will give you helpful and sometimes fun information such as:

* Vitamin B6 helps alleviate morning sickness.
* Anemia can show up during your second trimester if you're not getting enough iron.
* Iron supplementts commonly cause constipation. You may find them less of a problem if you take them on a full stomach and dink plenty of fluids.

Another helpful box you will find throughout the book is "Jonny's Tasty Tips." Here, the co-author highlights tasty ways for you to enjoy the foods that he is recommending. Some of these foods include:

* Chives, Leeks & Lamb during the first trimester.

This is actually the first review I have ever written. I am, though, an avid reader of them and base about 90% of my purchases on reviews, so I have to share my love for this book. This is my first pregnancy, and like other reviewers, I was confused and overwhelmed by the do's and don't's with your diet during pregnancy. This book breaks those down plus so much more. It is one of the easiest reads and reference books out there. I have been able to follow along by trimester, trying to read the trimester emphasized foods before entering it or at the beginning. This book broadened my diet as I would try to find recipes or ways to incorporate the highlighted foods into my diet as well as keeping the prior trimesters additions and rolling them over into the next. This book doesn't just tell you what to eat, it provides the "why." It also provides subtle differences in the way a product is prepared or purchased that really affect the nutrients in the item. Such as mushrooms....specific ones provide a stronger pow of nutrients. Also for example is the comment about celery and how it is important to buy it organic as it is one of the 12 most contaminated foods with pesticides. I typically ate healthy before this book, but this book has provided me with the knowledge to make small tweaks to my diet as well as open me to a broader range of food. Again with the small changes to diet, I now add organic flax seed on top of my morning granola to give me an extra punch of fiber, which I tend to need more of just in general. I can honestly imagine referencing this book not only through pregnancy and breastfeeding (as it has a section for this too), but also for everyday life as the foundation foods are power foods that should be in our diet not just to help develop our little ones, but to also better ourselves. I am now looking to buy another one of Jonny Bowden's books for my in-laws as they have just received results of high cholesterol and borderline diabetes.

I received the book a few days ago and love it. It has turned out to be a great quick-reference resource. I like that the book is divided by trimester and find that extremely helpful because I already have two kids plus a full-time job so I really appreciate quick and easy. I also like that the book explains things like "you should eat calcium rich foods with Vitamin D" and "you should eat iron with vitamin C"...maybe the rest of the world already knows this...but I didn't. I also didn't realize that by taking my iron pill in the morning when I have my milk is ineffective as calcium blocks the absorption of iron. Anyhow, I would recommend the book and think it provides useful information that can also benefit the significant other and/or the rest of the family.

I preface this by saying I have the Kindle version of this book so I don't know if the layout issues are the same in the actual book but I would have to assume so.

First let me say that there is some really good information in this book but the layout/editing leaves a lot to be desired.

If you read straight through the book it can be highly redundant. It seems that this book was meant to be used as a reference guide where you go to one page to read one section. As I read through the book it was very strange to read almost exact paragraphs from the previous super food in the next chapter's super food. Also, they have these inserts (Fast Facts) of additional information all throughout the book which although helpful are highly distracting. A helpful one liner floating at the top of a page is one thing, but seeing a whole new section of information in the middle of a sentence makes the book very hard to read. I'm not talking sentences here either, I'm talking about whole paragraphs of related information in the MIDDLE of another topic. You need an example? In the section on Anchovies this is exactly what happens:

Excerpt from the section on Choline:

"... These fats are involved in cell signaling (communication between

Then there is a paragraph on Folate
Then there is a paragraph on Jonny's Tasty Tips
Then there is a Fact Fact paragraph

THEN they finish the sentence from earlier -> cells.)"

Seriously, I would be surprised if I'm the only one that would find that hard to read.

Again I did find certain parts helpful; things like Jonny's Tasty Tips offered ideas on food pairings for maximum benefits and suggestions on meals (not recipes, just meals) offered some help with menu planning.
