Certain foods pack a nutritional punch, and can provide the optimal nutrients during pregnancy, particularly important when side effects make eating almost anything at all difficult.
By feasting on the foods that do her and her baby most good, a pregnant woman can ensure that her baby's brain and other organs, tissues and bones, develop healthily and that she maintains the strength and stamina to carry her baby to term and withstand the rigours of labour and delivery.
As well as helping readers choose the foods that best meet their needs, there is much good advice on preparing, cooking and storing foodstuffs safely, maximising nutritional benefits as well as dozens of delicious, nutrient-filled recipes.
