Good nutrition during pregnancy is very important for the baby to properly grow and develop, and for mom to have a healthy delivery. In Pregnancy Cooking & Nutrition For Dummies (Wiley; 978-1-118-08360-4; November 2011), Tara Gidus, RD, provides readers with recipes that meet the nutritional needs of expecting mothers—without sacrificing taste.
This handy, straightforward guide offers 100 recipes and provides answers to questions such as: what is healthy weight gain; what meals help to overcome morning sickness; what are nutritionally sound snacks to satisfy cravings; what foods should be avoided to control heartburn and gas; and how to maintain nutritional balance with recommended amounts of the best vitamin, mineral, and omega-3 supplements.
From seafood to eggs to unpasteurized cheeses, the list of foods pregnant women need to avoid is long and confusing. Pregnancy Cooking & Nutrition For Dummies* gives readers the lowdown on what to eat, what not to eat, and why. Additionally, the book discusses how those with special diets (e.g. vegetarians, those with food allergies, etc.) can still follow good nutritional guidelines.
