Eating Well When You’re Expecting provides mums-to-be with a realistic approach to navigating healthily and deliciously through the nine months of pregnancy – at home, in the office, at Christmas, 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 the book comes with 150 contemporary, tasty and healthy recipes that feed mum and baby well, take little time to prepare and are gentle on queasy tummies.
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? I’m entering my second trimester, and I’m losing weight, not gaining – help! 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? (The answer is yes!)
