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.

From the Back Cover:

Give your unborn baby a head start on a lifetime of good health

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.

Healthy Eating During Pregnancy arms you with the information you need to give your baby the very best--even before birth. One of Harvard Medical School's top experts in pediatrics and nutrition, Dr. W. Alan Walker draws upon the latest research and his more than two decades of clinical experience to explain, in plain English, the science of prenatal nutrition. More important, he gives you:

  • Nutritional guidelines from preconception to year one
  • Foods to eat and foods to avoid
  • A critical look at vitamins and other supplements
  • Menus and delicious recipes that make healthy eating easy
  • Exercises that help guarantee optimal health for you and baby
  • Expert advice on breast-feeding and how to be sure your baby is properly nourished during weaning
