Description
Announcing "Eating Well When You're Expecting," providing moms-to-be with a realistic approach to navigating healthily and deliciously through the nine months of pregnancy at home, in the office, over the holidays, in restaurants. Thorough chapters are devoted to nutrition, weight gain, food safety, the postpartum diet, and how to eat when trying to conceive again. And, very exciting, the book comes with 150 contemporary, tasty, and healthy recipes that feed mom and baby well, take little time to prepare, and are gentle on queasy tummies.
A departure from its predecessor, "What to Eat When You re Expecting," which has 976,000 copies in print, "Eating Well "loses the whole-wheatier-than-thou attitude, and comes with a light, reader-friendly tone while delivering the most up-to-date information. At the heart of the book are hundreds of pressing questions every mother-to-be has: " Is it true I shouldn t eat any food cooked with alcohol? Will the caffeine in coffee cross into my baby s bloodstream? Help I m entering my second trimester, and I m losing weight, not gaining. Is all sushi off limits? How do I get enough calcium if I m lactose intolerant? I keep dreaming about a hot fudge sundae can I indulge?" Guess what: the answer is yes.

What to Expect When You Are Expecting is a perennial best-seller, but its detailed descriptions of virtually every moment of pregnancy can also make mothers-to-be a little crazy. Some women in pregnancy crave all that information, but for others, it's information overload. More at NPR.org
