The ideal nutritional plan for a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby.
This book is the essential guide to nutrition for women who are either planning to conceive, are pregnant, or have given birth. It will also help women who are having difficulty conceiving or taking their baby to term. Top nutritionist Patrick Holford and journalist Susannah Lawson start with a pre-conception nutrition checklist, moving on to cover nutrition in pregnancy, complete with diet and meal plans. The final section deals with optimum nutrition for babies and young children, with information about weaning, prevention of allergies, and the ideal diet for a healthy child.
