Customers who bought this item also bought
There is no shortage of books on how pregnant women should conduct their lives, especially when it comes to eating. But here experienced nutritionist and author Somer (her works include Nutrition for Women and Food and Mood) has capsulized basic nutritional information in an easy-to-use, helpful guide. Some advice is a little unrealistic, such as suggesting that women consume no caffeine at all during pregnancy. Generally, though, this resource offers both basic tips on good health and more advanced nutritional recommendations. Also included are recipes that fit most active lifestyles. A nice addition to a library's pregnancy shelf. Mary Frances Wilkens --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
“This is the first book of its kind to present sound dietary guidelines on all aspects of pregnancy.” ―Miriam Erick, M.S., R.D., author of No More Morning Sickness

I bought this before I became pregnant and liked it so much before and during my pregnancy that I have given this as a gift. Such a great reference - I can't count the number of times I have gone back to this. I also like the recipes Somer includes - some have become household favorites.
Not only was the text **easy** to read and understand, the author didn't just say "get more iron in your diet" or "eat more whole grain foods" (like other books I've read)- the author actually provided list after list of what (realistic) foods one could add to their diet to get the vitamins and minerals. This was great for a "nutrition newbie" like me!
I have always thought that pregnancy was a time for a woman to eat as much ice cream, candy, pickles, etc. or WHATever she was craving. However, this book was a wake-up call: Nutrition is essential for the baby's health.
I enjoyed learning about what nutrients were essential - and WHEN they are essential - from conception all the way past birth. I also enjoyed learning WHY all these minerals and vitamins were needed for each stage of the baby's development.
Women, if you are even THINKING about trying to concieve a baby, get this book! If you're already pregnant, it's not too late to read up and change your habits for the sake of your health - and your baby's health!
I found this book to be an interesting, applicable and detailed tutorial which provided guidelines that I appreciated acquiring! A must read for any woman interested in the nutritional pieces of everything related to her pregnancy!
