The Harvard Medical School Guide to Healthy Eating During Pregnancy

All parents know that kids need nutritious foods as they grow. New research confirms that what a woman eats during pregnancy can also profoundly affect the health of her baby when that baby becomes an adult — for better or for worse. Healthy Eating During Pregnancy by W. Allan Walker, M.D. offers solid information and medically sound advice for pregnant and nursing women from one of the world’s leading experts in nutrition.

Healthy Eating During Pregnancy offers safe and easy-to-follow guidelines so moms and their babies can get the nutrition they need without adhering to a strict or limited diet. Also included are:

  • Foods to eat as well as avoid
  • Exercise routines
  • Information on how to eat after pregnancy and while nursing
  • Vegetarian and special diets
  • Recipes such as Eda-Mommy (Edamame) Vegetable Salad, Turkey and Spinach Meatballs, and Chocolate Fondue.
  • And much more…

With Dr. Walker’s helpful and knowledgeable advice a mother-to-be can feel confident she can do all she can for herself and her growing child.
