Charlotte Watts's 100 Best Foods for Pregnancy is such a treat for the permanently peckish pregnant woman.
But it starts long before that - split into chunks starting with fertility and conception, going through the three trimesters and right up to the best post-natal nutrition, it is packed with facts, tips and best of all, yummy recipes for each of the 100 foods listed.
As a vegetarian I'm used to reading cookery books that make me feel sidelined and a bit of a second-class citizen, but this one is full of brilliant recipes that can be used as side dishes or mains whether you're a veggie or a meat eater.
Some of my favourites so far are vegetarian kedgeree, with brown rice and lentils, and roasted asparagus.
The best thing about this book is that it makes you want to eat healthily - so when I'm feeling hungry (which is all the time, for nine months) instead of grabbing a bag of crisps I want to nibble on fresh fruit or veg or other healthy, tasty treats. And then I feel much better than I would have done if I'd eaten the crisps.
A further, unexpected bonus, is that my two-and-a-half-year-old has taken a shine to 100 Best Foods for Pregnancy and keeps asking for "stories" from it - which means he is learning to identify all sorts of foods he might not have come across for years otherwise.
It also contains a useful list of foods to avoid and why, which is very useful if you're getting confused about what you should and shouldn't be eating.100 Best Foods for Pregnancy
