    Review:

    All the information any pregnant woman could possibly need to give her baby the healthiest start in life. Excellent. -- Live It, June 2006

    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
