4-0 out of 5 stars Pregnancy and Nutrition
The book was okay but I felt it was a lttle out dated. I really wanted more information on Nutrition and not as much on Pregnancy which I have gotten from books specifically on Pregnancy.

3-0 out of 5 stars It's Ok, but not great, with one big flaw
I'm in my first trimester and I received this book as a gift from a friend.I think that generally the advice is ok, but not as up to date as another reviewer mentioned.The recipes look good, but there are not that many (I haven't actually made any so I can't review on the recipes).Suprisingly, in her menu section, a lot of days call for fish.I'm not crazy about fish, so that's not helpful.My biggest complaint is that she recomends "diet" drinks or the use of artificial sweeteners.That stuff is pure poison and I would not expose my unborn child to artificial sweeteners in a million years.So if you do decide to purchase the book, I would recommend you ignore that bit of advice.

5-0 out of 5 stars Step by Step Excellent
I was very impressed with the thorough amount of information in this book.The author provided a lengthly list of selected references, which acknowledged the research that supported her recommendations she was making to the reader.It was a helpful step by step, detailed guide of nutrition from pre-pregnancy through the third trimester and included a wide range of nutritional information such as protein, healthy snacking, herbal teas, vitamins, minerals, vegetarian diets, herbal supplements, etc. etc. It also included pages addressing issues related to mood changes, cravings, weight gain, stress, exercise, delivery, nursing, high risk pregnancy and nutritional approaches to heartburn, gum problems, eclampsia, etc.It even included an appendix with 28 days worth of menus (breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks) and a variety of additional recipes.
I found this book to be an interesting, applicable and detailed tutorial which provided guidelines that I appreciated acquiring! A must read for any woman interested in the nutritional pieces of everything related to her pregnancy!

3-0 out of 5 stars Just another diet book, targeted to a different audience
This book did not offer anything new from the usual "everything in moderation", except for no smoking, no drinking and take your prenatal vitamins. Chances are, if you were healthy before pregnancy, you will continue to be healthy in pregnancy, if you were not healthy before, now it is a good time to become healthy, but if you were struggling with losing weight, this book will seem like any other diet book in the market.

4-0 out of 5 stars Just what I had expected
I thought this book was very useful.I bought it as soon as I found out I was pregnant with our first child because I wanted to ensure that my developing baby was getting proper nutrition.This book achieved that purpose. As a scientist, I had read several studies that found evidence of the nutritional status of the mother in the health of her future grandchildren.Moreover, that my diet could affect what diseases, if any my child developed later in life. I wanted to make sure the legacy I created would be a good one.This book was broken down into the nutrition needed for each stage. There were sections for pre-pregnancy, a section for each of the three trimesters and post pregnancy (which included sections for nutrients needed while breastfeeding and returning to pre-pregnancy weight.)It also included mock menu's and recipe ideas.Overall I thought it was a good book to have particularly if you own no other books on the subject.Particularly useful were the charts listing types of foods containing the nutrients you need.There were also descriptions about the vitamins and minerals needed and why the baby needs them.This book is definitely a keeper. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for mothers-to-be
Lots of really great recipes in this book. I have made a few of the meals in it and even my husband who is such picky eater loved the meals.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Vegan's Eye View
I bought this book in Kindle Edition and I have to say, it is full of great information for mothers or those wishing to conceive. I will say however, that the vegan section was a little lacking as it focuses heavily on soy. While I am glad to be included in a book about nutrition, vegans don't actually eat this way. There's a part called "Welcome to the World of Soy"... I think it said. I remember thinking, this isn't how things really are and soy is not the only source of vegan protein. While she does mention other non-dairy milks in a couple of locations I just thought the lack of seitan (wheat meat) a glaring error. It's got HUGE amounts of protein, but no mention. Kind of unfortunate, some people will read this and think that they must replace everything with soy products. I'm not anti soy, just pro-diverse diet. So, I still give it 4 stars because it wasn't a vegan book so I can't really say that it wasn't a good one. I'm glad there's an effort here.

5-0 out of 5 stars Everything a mother-to-be needs to know about healthy eating
Pregnancy is a natural opportunity to focus seriously on nutrition. But where to begin? And, even harder, where to end if you don't want to come home from the bookstore with your arms overflowing with purchases? Fortunately, Catherine Jones and Rose Ann Hudson make this decision easier by packing generous servings of nutritional information for pregnant women along with 150 healthy, simple recipes into just one book.

Eating for Pregnancy combines easy-to-make, nutritionally-rich recipes literally from soup to nuts, with a plethora of nutritional information, healthy eating tips, and dietary guidelines. The authors touch on many useful topics, such as combating heartburn, choosing the healthiest fish, high risk pregnancies, and environmental concerns, to name but a few. Vegetarians and vegans will find plenty of support for making good dietary choices during pregnancy in this book, with an entire chapter devoted to "Vegetarian and Vegan Delights" full of succulent and simple recipes. The second edition has been expanded to include a Nine Months Later section, providing recipes specifically for breastfeeding mothers, an exercise program and tips on dealing with post-partum depression from experts in the field.

Woven into the thorough array of gastronomical guidelines, the authors provide a delightful range of guilt-free recipes that taste as delicious as they sound. Breakfast might be a French Toast Banana Sandwich, a lunch of Asian-Style Turkey Wrap or Crispy Fried Tofu with Sesame-Soy Sauce, and for dinner a Sauteed Salmon on a Bed of Greens with Citrus Vinaigrette. And for dessert? Hmm, will it be Peach and Blackberry Cobbler or Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting? Maybe both? These recipes are so wholesome that you can have your cake - and your cobbler - and eat it too.

The recipes in Eating for Pregnancy are remarkably easy to make, requiring minimal effort. Most can be made in only three steps! The simple ingredients seem carefully chosen to provide the most nutrition and the best taste with the least effort. Both authors are mothers who know intimately about the up's and down's of pregnancy in today's world. They wrote this book to assist real women in a real world. "Considering our time-pressured lives," the authors write, "we tried to make this book as quick to read and user-friendly as possible. At-a-glace nutrient sources, pantry lists, and cooking tips are designed to make your life easier in the grocery story and in front of the stove."

The authors write for an inclusive readership, anticipating the special needs of over- or under-weight moms-to-be as well as teenagers, those carrying multiples, and women with gestational diabetes. However, Eating for Pregnancy seems to be most suited for educated readers who already have a health-conscious approach to eating. Women less knowledgeable about good food choices might become overwhelmed by the advice and some of the recipes. For instance, a woman accustomed to a salad of iceberg lettuce might have a hard time getting her mind around more nutritionally-packed choices like dandelion, sorrel and mustard greens. (Though in my opinion, it's a hurdle worth trying to overcome.)

Healthy eaters will become even healthier with the guidance of this book. Eating for Pregnancy helps women make better dietary choices for themselves and their families, not just during pregnancy, but for a lifetime of good eating.

Quill says: Everything a mother-to-be needs to know about healthy eating, plus 150 nutrition-packed, tasty recipes. Yum!

Product Description
Reading THE NATURAL PREGNANCY BOOK is like having your own personal herbalist and midwife at your side. Expertly written by Aviva Jill Romm, who has been providing family-centered natural health care for almost 20 years, it was one of the first books to explore botanical medicine and pregnancy. In this revised and updated edition, Ms. Romm thoughtfully follows the woman’s journey from conception to birth, focusing on natural health. She describes herbs that can promote and maintain a healthy pregnancy (along with those you should avoid during your term) and the basics of a healthy diet, with an emphasis on natural foods. THE NATURAL PREGNANCY BOOK is a complete guide for the woman who envisions a safe pregnancy without technological intervention, as nature intended. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Well Borrowed and Always Loved Book
When I found this book, I was pregnant with my daughter.Following Romm's advice, I was able to successfully deal with minor complications I was having by using nutrition and herbs.I absolutely recommend this book to anyone who is looking for sound, safe advice from a standpoint of natural methods.I have lent this book out many times, all to rave reviews, and now it travels from expectant mother to expectant mother.I am happy that it is circulating among friends, helping women.After my daughter was born, I bought Romm's book on healthy children, and following her nutrition and herbal medicine recommendations I have nursed my daughter through chicken pox, two ear infections, a bad fever and several episodes of congestion/colds/coughs.My daughter is healthy (despite this list of illnesses), and has never had to take antibiotics.In fact, using Romm's remedies, none of these illnesses ever got bad enough to require a doctor visit.I can thank Romm for the fact that my girl has only visited doctors for well child check-ups.I have been inspired enough by this success to pursue a career in herbal medicine and nursing.This is the only book review I have written for Amazon, and I am a voracious reader of natural medicine/nutrition/gardening/beekeeping/fiction/natural housebuilding books.Romm is now a medical doctor with a degree from Yale. Thanks Aviva!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Advice
Very comprehansive book for those of us who want a natural approach to self care during and post pregnancy.

5-0 out of 5 stars An uplifting and positive message about your pregnancy
This book will make you feel empowered and optimistic about your pregnancy and delivery. The author writes in a gentle but knowledgeable style. I especially like the exercises recommended to prepare your body for birth. She also lists some herbs that are okay during pregnancy. As a very hands on pregnant person, I don't want to sit around and wait for nine months to go by. I am actively helping to change my body as it changes.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best book
I have read a few book now and this one is my favorite. I really enjoy it and will share it with friends I highly recommend.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Book for the Novice
I found this book to be so helpful, since it was much easier to read for the novice herbalist. I am over 35 having my first pregnancy and want to do natural childbirth.This book has really helped me with what herbs to take for delivery and what to be aware of.I especially liked the chapter written by her husband.My husband was quite concerned about me going the "natural route" at my age.An excellent book for a first time mother. ...

Product Description

When you're eating for two, you need to eat well.

There's no question that a vegetarian or vegan diet is just as nutritionally sound during pregnancy as one that includes animal protein. In fact, vegetarian nutrition offers pregnant women valuable health benefits that you simply won't find in a nonvegetarian diet, such as higher levels of folic acid, lower cholesterol, and an abundant variety of essential minerals, vitamins, and nutrients. Whether you are already vegetarian or you simply want to reduce the amount of meat in your diet, making the right dietary choices to support you and your baby is the key to a safe, healthy pregnancy.

Fulfilling every nutritional guideline recommended by the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Your Vegetarian Pregnancy is the first authoritative guide to maintaining a healthy plant-based diet before, during, and after the birth of your child. Combining complete obstetrical information with sound nutritional guidance, this guide will educate you about:

Basic pregnancy issues, such as fetal development, changes within your body, and preparation for labor and delivery.

What to expect each month, and how to cope with the unexpected.

Key nutrients for your baby and you, with suggestions on how to obtain these through diet, vitamins, and supplements.

The myriad benefits to eating vegetarian during pregnancy, in an entire chapter comparing vegetarian and nonvegetarian nutrition.

With this unique and accessible handbook, you can be confident that your vegetarian pregnancy will be wonderfully beneficial for both you and your baby. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars wonderful read!
Let me start off by saying I have been veg for 20 years and vegan for 12.I had been looking for info on having a healthy vegan pregnancy but most of what I found had to do with smoking, illegal drug use, etc. which was not helpful in my case.I was over joyed when I found this book.It's an easy read and really informative.I was a bit nervous when thinking about pregnancy and it really eased my nerves.It spells out what you need, how much you need, and where to get it. This book was worth the money and then some!

1-0 out of 5 stars Waste of Money
The book is okay and somewhat informative but does not offer any true guidance as to what should a vegeterian woman eat during pregnancy. Very dissapointed. Waste of money.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not as good as I expected
This entire book is in Question & Answer format, which I find rather annoying. It was written by an obstetrician, and contains far too much general info about pregnancy. I have other books for that; I was expecting only information about nutrition from this book. The actual information and tables related to nutrition are the best part of this book, but comprise far too few pages relative to the whole thing.

3-0 out of 5 stars okay book
I didn't really like it and didn't find it helpful. Maybe if you're new to vegetarianism and scared it might reassure you. Being a pregnant vegetarian is no different than being a pregnant meat eater. Just eat healthy foods and you're good to go.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not really useful.
It really didn't help. I have other pregnancy books that weren't veggie, that gave the same information. ... Read more

    The book is ok, but not realistic on some food choices and things to do.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Jusk OK
    This book limits itself to food when everyone knows there's a lot more to pregnancy than what you eat. I would recommend getting an all-inclusive pregnancy book like "What to expect when you're expecting" because it completely covers what to eat as well as a lot of other helpful information that this book leaves out.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Fine, if you believe everything the government tells you.
    I found this book dated and misleading. I was especially concerned with the advice to drink plenty of fluoridated tap water. More evidence is available that shows fluoride is dangerous, especially to pregnant women and babies.

    And it may be safe to eat processed cheese, but I wanted a book centered around a diet that avoids processed foods. Disgusting.

    I found the information in other popular "Expecting" books to be more complete for preferences towards natural diets. ... Read more

    Eat the best foods for your baby’s development!


    Nutrition is never more critical than during pregnancy. What you choose to put on your plate affects you and your baby’s health not just in utero but for years to come. However, many nutritional guidelines for pregnancy are complex, confusing, and offer an uninspiring list of things to eat for the next nine months.


    Backed up by the latest nutritional research, this guide debunks pregnancy food myths and uncovers a number of surprising food choices that are superfoods for expectant mothers.



    This one-of-a-kind nutrition reference guide is also packed with helpful quick-reference charts and sidebars, highlighting healthy (but no less delicious!) substitutes for commonly craved foods like ice cream and potato chips. You’ll also discover the most up-to-date research regarding pregnancy dilemmas, such as how to get more omega-3s from fish in your diet while avoiding mercury. It’s pregnancy nutrition made easy!

    5-0 out of 5 stars A recommended reference for my patients
    There is a definite need for education in nutrition, especially during pregnancy.This is one of two books on the topic that I specifically recommend for my patient to have in their library.The book list I give patients is about 10 deep and this one comes in the top 10 for something you can go to in a pinch when you have a question about diet in pregnancy.

    I have had countless numbers of patients tell me they found this book a valuable resource.

    Shawn Tassone, MD author of Hands Off My Belly: The Pregnant Woman's Survival Guide to Myths, Mothers, and Moods

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very Good Reference for Expectant Moms
    When you are expecting, there is an overwhelming amount of rules: you can do this, you can't do that, eat this/not that... and there is an equally overwhelming number of books to read.

    When I was pregnant with my daughter I bought and quickly returned many-a books. There was only 1 pregnancy book that I kept and if this below was released when I was pregnant, this would have been a book that I kept as well.

    Jonny Bowden and Allison Tannis have put together a reference for moms-to-be to help you figure out what foods are best to eat during your pregnancy. Broken down into trimester, this book is very well organized and does not require you to read it cover-to-cover. Rather, you can read it on a need-to-know basis.

    Not only do the authors fill you in on foods that you probably never thought of eating during your pregnancy that will make a difference in your baby's life, but they tell you why. They don't just say eat this and not that- they give you the medical reasons (in layman's terms) of why you should eat this or that and what good it will do for you and your baby.

    The book includes "fast fact" boxes that will give you helpful and sometimes fun information such as:

    * Vitamin B6 helps alleviate morning sickness.
    * Anemia can show up during your second trimester if you're not getting enough iron.
    * Iron supplementts commonly cause constipation. You may find them less of a problem if you take them on a full stomach and dink plenty of fluids.

    Another helpful box you will find throughout the book is "Jonny's Tasty Tips." Here, the co-author highlights tasty ways for you to enjoy the foods that he is recommending. Some of these foods include:

    * Chives, Leeks & Lamb during the first trimester.
    * Figs, Chia Seeds & Watercress during the second trimester.
    * Cranberries, Herring & Rhubarb during the third trimester.

    The remaining chapters in the book cover pre- and post-natal days from fertility to breast feeding and everything in between. Giving you the knowledge about the best foods that you can eat

    * to help with the aches, pains and complaints of pregnancy
    * while breastfeeding your newest arrival
    * during the post-partum period that may even help alleviate the symptoms of post-partum depression. According to the authors, there area foods that have "depression-fighting power"
    * to help with your fertility and start you off with a healthy pregnancy before you even conceive.

    A very important chapter, in my opinion, contains information on what the authors call "tricky foods and herbs." We have all heard of certain herbs, foods and/or activities that we should avoid while pregnant- especially during the first 12 weeks of a baby's development. Things like alcohol/caffeine consumption, artificial sweeteners, hot dogs (yum!), herbal supplements and more. The authors tackle these topics and give you the information that you need to make informed decisions regarding your lifestyle while pregnant.

    To me, the book reads like an encyclopedia, not too overwhelming, easy to find the information you need and very well organized/broken down into sub-sections. I can open it up, find what I need and move on. Complete with color photos, nutritional information, fact boxes and more- I think this is a perfect addition to any pregnant woman's bookshelf- just to have as a reference. It would probably make a good gift for someone that you know is pregnant.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great book for price!!!
    I enjoyed reading this book and it gave me plenty of healthy foods to eat while pregnant. Some of the things they recommended was things that I never knew existed.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Eat, and eat good!
    Good book. Very insightful. A nice book to have handy throughout pregnancy. Also very helpful for those just thinking about getting pregnant because our health and diet is so important prior to conception and during the first few weeks of pregnancy, when women usually don't even know they're pregnant yet.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Lots of details.Lots.If you dig details, this is for you.
    When I found out my wife was pregnant, I went a little crazy ordering pregnancy and baby books.Just wanted to make sure we were knowledgeable.This was one of them.

    First, don't get me wrong, this is a good book.It's a quick and easy read.There is a lot of great information, and it's well laid out which makes it easy to reference.I have found myself looking stuff up in it a couple times.

    However, there is not a lot of new information in it.As the cook in the household, I am always working to create balanced meals with lots of veggies and fruits available.I may have shifted what I'm making a little bit, but to be honest, the outline of this book was given to us by our doctor at our first appointment, and I found it be very repetitive of things I've already heard, but with a LOT more details.If you like the details, then you'll probably enjoy the book more than I.Frankly, I'm not sure what I expected, but I didn't really need to know all the specific things that each vitamin does.

    Basically, I suspect if your diet before pregnancy consists mostly of pizza, burritos, McDonalds, a periodic salad, and lots of coffee and soda, then you might get more value out of this book than I did.If you already are honestly trying to eat a balanced diet and have a good doctor who walks you through your caloric needs, then this book is probably more detail than you need.

    I've only tried one of the recipes at the back of the book and it was good (not great, but good).I will likely try others, but may do some customizing to make it a little more flavorful.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Practical tips
    Great book. Realistic guidelines and does not come across as condescending or too "preachy". Would be helpful if references to measurements were also on the metric system. Otherwise a great read with some useful information to arm you with what to expect and what to/not to eat.

    3-0 out of 5 stars I'm not sure
    I havent had a chance to look through it too much but, what I have seen looks pretty good!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Every pregnant woman should own this book!
    The American Dietetic Association teams up with one of the most respected dietitians around, Elizabeth Ward, and brings women the most credible book on pregnancy nutrition.This book covers it all.What to eat before, during and after pregnancy, motherly wisdom from moms who've been there, how to find a prenatal vitamin, how much caffeine to drink (or not), whether or not artificial sweeteners are safe, how much and types of fish to eat, specific nutrients that are needed, meal plans and more.

    This book even helps moms-to-be figure out how much fun food (aka sweets) to include along with specific nutritional needs for each trimester and during breastfeeding. There are chapters dedicated to food safety, infertility and recipes.

    All I can say is I wish this book was around when I was trying to get pregnant.As a dietitian, I wholeheartedly believe that raising healthy eaters starts when a couple first thinks about becoming pregnant.

    This book should be on the bookshelf of every woman wanting a child or that is already pregnant.I will continue to recommend it to everyone I know.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Another good book for foodies that are pregnant
    I have heard feedback from patients that really like the recipes in this book and that they are not too hard or time consuming to make since you really don't have time as a mom.There are many books out there for diet in pregnancy and this is good one to add, but there are some misconceptions out there that you are eating for two or that you need to gain a certain amount of weight during pregnancy.Just like your baby your pregnancy is different and your weight gain is going to vary based on genetics, diet, and exercise.Another great book that looks into pregnancy myths and also has an entire chapter on dietary myths in pregnancy is Hands Off My Belly: The Pregnant Woman's Survival Guide to Myths, Mothers, and Moods

    Again, there are many pregnancy food books out there and most of which are written by dietitians and occasional a nurse or physician.The best thing you can do is read, read, and read more and you will have a healthy and happy pregnancy.I would consider this book a necessity for the pregnant and breast-feeding kitchen ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Nutrition in pregnancy and lactation
    My edition is now an antique so this review is not current.I was fortunate enough to have the author as instructor in a course with the same title at UW School of Nursing in 1980 and I can safely say it is the singlecourse which has made a daily difference in my life ever since. Worthington-Roberts has great integrity and this permeates a piece ofprofessional literature in a way one seldom sees.I was thrilled to seethat the book is available in a current edition and would recommendanything by this author on the subject of maternal and child nutritionwithout reservation. Today I practice as a staff midwife and breastfeedingspecialist in a hospital in Norway but still find English language sourcesto be the best on such topics as this.There are now many, many books onpregnancy, breastfeeding and lactation, but there will always be a place onmy bookshelf for this one.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Not a lay text.A book for professionals in physiology only
    The only thing I got out of the book was that a lactating mother needs more protein and the increase can be satisfied by drinking 3-31/2 cups more milk a day.There was also a need for more folic acid and some othervitamins that can be supplied by eating more green leafy vegetables. I washoping for practical daily nutrition suggestions and there were none. ... Read more

    It’s Time for a Delicious Revolution

    By Dr. Alan Greene

    Konrad Lorenz made his mark by studying a special type of learning where key exposures during a critical and sensitive window of development can have a lasting influence – a process he called imprinting. The famous example of this is imprinting in geese. Newly hatched goslings are programmed to follow the first moving objects they see. They quickly become imprinted on this object and will move their little feet fast to keep up with it. This is highly adaptive. Most of the time. Usually this moving magnet is the gosling’s mother.

    Photo by Howard Schoenberger

    Lorenz showed, however, that if he were the first mover that a gosling saw, it would be imprinted on Lorenz and follow him about, refusing to follow a goose. A goose could even imprint on a toy train and ignore other geese, even its own mother. Later, as adults, these geese would even choose toy trains for their life partners (which didn't work out well for the geese -- or the trains). Lorenz won the Nobel Prize for this work in 1973.

    We’ve known for at least thirty years from animal studies that very early flavor experiences change which foods will later be preferred. Within five years of Lorenz’s Nobel Prize, food imprinting had already been demonstrated in snapping turtles, chickens, gulls, dogs, and cats.

    Human babies also learn by imprinting, though ours is more complex, more forgiving, and occurs during a longer critical window. In particular human babies imprint on food. This is a highly adaptive mechanism -- but in the second half of the twentieth century we have unwittingly imprinted our children on the wrong tastes and textures. They will chase after junk food and kids meals, and ignore a delicious, ripe peach or tomato packed with nutrients their bodies crave.

    Feeding Baby Green unveils the key windows of opportunities for our children, and how the imprinting occurs using not just taste but all of the senses, from pregnancy through age 2 (and beyond -- with a final chapter giving an overview up to age 9).

    At its core, Feeding Baby Green is a revolutionary approach to cultivating Nutritional Intelligence, the age-appropriate ability to recognize and enjoy healthy amounts of great food. Pregnancy and the first two years of life are critical windows for learning Nutritional Intelligence, an important, newly described strand of development. Most American kids of the last few decades are Nutritionally Delayed. Thankfully, this is easy to remedy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Helpful approach to helping whole family eat balanced and varied meals
    This book is quite helpful for women who are pregnant and for families who are raising young children.The chapters are oriented around several key themes that recur throughout the chronology of pregnancy to infancy to young child.There are recipes and tips that are genuinely good--like keeping a water pitcher for the family that has cucumbers or spearmint in it.And the approach to food--not pressuring children--is definitely something worth remembering and reading.The information is not quickly at one's fingertips, but once one has read two chapters, there is little need to read the rest.One can skim the recipes and tips.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Companion for Primal and Organic People
    We eat primal organic and free range as much as possible so when we decided to start trying to have a baby, this seemed like a logical thing to research. Much to my pleasant surprise, Feeding Baby Green confirmed many of my own ideas about what to feed babies (and Mommies during pregnancy and beyond) and it presents the research to back it up. Dr. Greene explains why the concept of "baby food" is a myth and how preparing your baby's meals with real food is a healthier and smarter alternative to processed canned foods and dry cereals. Great book. I will be giving copies of this to my expecting friends.

    3-0 out of 5 stars .
    Mostly common sense and information you can find on parenting websites but it's a good book on the subject.

    Doesn't spend a lot of time trying to convince you of it's cause and addresses the issues of individuality in nutritional needs.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Interesting and good info
    I am enjoying this book. I already generally eat in a "green" way, but I like the info about eating during pregnancy and the research about how what you eat now can impact baby's food preferences later.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Essential reading if you take your child's health seriously
    As a parent with a baby, I am very concerned about the increasing amount of information that is emerging these days over the toxicity of conventional foods. We have recently switched over to mostly organic produce and haven't looked back. We are healthier, happier and have much more energy than we had before. This book has come along at just the right moment in our lives, as we were very concerned about what we should be feeding our baby.

    The book is somewhat biographical in nature, and this helps to underline how we are all creatures of habit, and we slip into certain behavioral grooves that determine not only our eating habits, but our health and overall well-being, not to mention the example that we set for out children. This book explains that a lot of processed foods contain ingredients that are not so much designed for their nutrition, but more for their addictive nature and low production cost, in that they access those pleasure centers of the brain that could falsely lead a parent to believe that their child was getting a nutritious diet, because they would crave it!

    We have taken this book very seriously and we are now preparing our own baby foods and inviting our child to explore food in ways that we had never thought of before, such as appreciating the textures, smells and shapes of foods, adding to the delight of discovering taste on many different levels. We are hoping that we can educate our child to make excellent and nutritious food choices when they mature, avoiding the spin and deceit of many large label products that are mostly vacuous and even toxic in their dietary value. ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Very informative
    I found this book full with tips and information on what to expect through pregnancy. I think it's worth the read to understand exactly why you need to eat healthy throug pregnancy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book
    I liked this book because it was the only book I could find with real information about artificial sweeteners.It seemed to be up to date and it gave the info understood from the most current research.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good Source
    I read this book cover to cover and to be honest, I don't think I learned anything new. In fact there is surprisingly little time devoted to actually how/what to eat! It seems like most of the book is devoted to the idea that how you eat during pregnancy will affect your child's health later in life. So if you need motivation to reach for the veggies everyday, this would be a great book to read. But overall it's the same tips about what to avoid, eat from the food pyramid, etc. Having said that, I gave it four stars because even though the information isn't new, it feels good to get it from a reputable source since half the stuff you read, it's hard to tell if you can trust it. Additionally, there are some wonderful, easy, healthy recipes at the end of the book!

    5-0 out of 5 stars The bottom line: Get ready for baby!
    Kudos to Dr. Walker on the second publication (although I wish I had this one first!) on health and wellness for mothers and their babies.

    This 'easy-to-ingest' book is an excellent resource for information on what to eat, what to avoid, and even includes tips on exercise and creative recipes for snack and mealtimes.

    Take care of yourself, and take care of your baby!

    Product Description
    The use of measurements to assess maternal nutritional status (anthropometric indicators) is essential to identifying women at risk of experiencing pregnancy complications and bearing growth-retarded infants.

    This book consists of five parts, each of which discusses a different anthropometric indicator: pre-pregnancy weight, height, arm circumference, weight gain in pregnancy, and weight-for-height and body mass index. In each of the five parts, a background chapter, written in question-and-answer format, provides information on the indicator's current use, its relationship to other indicators, its reliability, averages, standards, and cut-off points for use in industrialized and developing countries.Additional chapters delve into issues specific to each indicator, and each part ends with a summary and recommendations for the indicator's use.

    This publication will provide valuable guidelines to field personnel and researchers on the use of anthropometric indicators for predicting pregnancy outcomes. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Product Description
    As women of childbearing age have become heavier, the trade-off between maternal and child health created by variation in gestational weight gain has become more difficult to reconcile. Weight Gain During Pregnancy responds to the need for a reexamination of the 1990 Institute of Medicine guidelines for weight gain during pregnancy. It builds on the conceptual framework that underscored the 1990 weight gain guidelines and addresses the need to update them through a comprehensive review of the literature and independent analyses of existing databases. The book explores relationships between weight gain during pregnancy and a variety of factors (e.g., the mother's weight and height before pregnancy) and places this in the context of the health of the infant and the mother, presenting specific, updated target ranges for weight gain during pregnancy and guidelines for proper measurement. New features of this book include a specific range of recommended gain for obese women.

    Weight Gain During Pregnancy is intended to assist practitioners who care for women of childbearing age, policy makers, educators, researchers, and the pregnant women themselves to understand the role of gestational weight gain and to provide them with the tools needed to promote optimal pregnancy outcomes.

    Improving clinicians' understanding of effects nutrition can have on maternal health and fetal and neonatal development can have considerable impact on achieving a healthy pregnancy and reducing childhood morbidity. This book defines the nutritional requirements with regard to each stage of fetal development and growth, placing scientific developments into a clinical context. Clinicians and scientists discuss: how the fetus grows and what macro- and micronutrients it requires; what happens when there is nutrient deficiency and when placental development is abnormal; aspects of infant feeding, both with breast milk and formula milk. Specific problems encountered in pregnancy that pose a nutritional challenge are also considered, including pregnancy in teenagers, multiple pregnancies and pregnancy in those who are vegetarians or vegans. All doctors, health-care workers or scientists who either care for women, their newborn and growing infants, or who are involved in research in these areas, will find this to be essential reading. ...

    When we look back on childhood, we realize that "exercise" was a lot like play. Recess was a favorite time during school: we enjoyed running, playing tag, or hitting a baseball just because it felt good. And if we were lucky, we carried these healthy habits into adulthood. However, it's apparent that staying active, even as kids, has become the exception. The statistics are depressing: up to one-third of American children are obese. And overweight kids become overweight adults.

    Parents play a significant role in keeping children fit and healthy. Good nutrition and exercise learned as a child can mean a long and active life as an adult. This book can help reades foster these healh habits in their children.

    "Fit Kids for Life" coves common misconceptions regarding strength training for children. Kids can safely use resistance training to get firr for recreational activities and sports. Weight lifting allows children to build strength, prevent injury, and improvve motor skills. Coaching tips, gender specific workouts, and training programs are included. The more kids exercise and participate in sports, the more calories and nutrients they need. Athletics creates more nutritional demands on the body, especiallywhen a hectic and unhealthy eating schedule has become a habit. Parents and young athletes need to undestand the importance of high-quality nutritiion. You'll find general dietary guidelines for health eating for active kids, as well as tips on pre- and post-exercise nutrition, staying hydrated while exercising, and health snacks. In short, "Fit Kids for Life" willhelp you keep young athletes injury free, active, and healthy right into adulthood. ... Read more
