No strict diets, no scary guidelines–just the essential nutrition expectant moms need to start their babies on the road to lifelong health
All parents know that kids need nutritious foods as they grow. But new research confirms that what you eats during pregnancy can also profoundly affect the health of your baby when that baby becomes an adult–for better or for worse. Endorsed by the Harvard Medical School and written by one of the world’s leading experts in nutrition for pregnant women and babies, this guide offers more solid information and medically sound advice on prenatal nutrition than any other book on the market.
What you eat during pregnancy has a strong influence on your baby’s health at birth. But did you know that it also can have a lifelong impact on your child’s health? The latest scientific research indicates that good nutrition begins in the womb, and healthy eating habits during pregnancy can actually help lower your child’s risk of obesity, hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, and a host of other problems later in life.

I read this book cover to cover and to be honest, I don’t think I learned anything new. In fact there is surprisingly little time devoted to actually how/what to eat! It seems like most of the book is devoted to the idea that how you eat during pregnancy will affect your child’s health later in life. So if you need motivation to reach for the veggies everyday, this would be a great book to read. But overall it’s the same tips about what to avoid, eat from the food pyramid, etc. Having said that, I gave it four stars because even though the information isn’t new, it feels good to get it from a reputable source since half the stuff you read, it’s hard to tell if you can trust it. Additionally, there are some wonderful, easy, healthy recipes at the end of the book!
