More About the Author
Rana has lectured on a wide range of undergraduate courses and taught nutrition to medical students, midwives and trainee dieticians. She now enjoys researching and writing books and magazine features and is the nutrition expert for madeformums.com.
She lives in London with her husband and their three children.
I'm really excited that 'My pregnancy recipes and meal planner' is about to be published. Every recipe in it has been tested by a real mum or mum-to-be and by their partners and friends. With their help I've managed to bring together a collection of dishes that meet all the needs of growing babies but also satisfy the taste buds of pregnant women and anyone they might be eating with.
"Many books favour one option or the other, so here is the opportunity for both schools of thought to be considered in one unbiased place." - Parents in Touch

I cannot rate this book highly enough. I was looking for a book about weaning that explained traditional (puree-based) and baby-led weaning so that I could choose the best way to wean my first child (now seven months). This book starts off by explaining both methods, the research behind them and the pros and cons of each (for example, that research clearly shows that using BLW alone can cause nutritional deficiencies or that puree-based weaning alone can lead to a lack of independence at meal times). It goes on to suggest how the two methods can be successfully combined in order to overcome the disadvantages of each method. The book is written by a qualified nutritionist with over 18 years of experience, who has established herself as an expert in nutrition for pregnancy and childhood, and has carried out nutrition research at leading universities. She also has three children. It's your choice, but I felt much more comfortable following advice from someone with these credentials, who backs up all her suggestions with proof from controlled scientific studies, rather than someone like Annabel Karmel who is a bit of a celebrity but has no actual nutrition qualifications as far as I can find out. Also, this book has only just been published and so the research quoted is recent and relevant.Read more ›
Well written, with good advice from a trusted source. Recommended.
This is a first-rate book that we are delighted to own.
However, I wouldn't suggest buying it on Kindle as I did, because the charts and meal plans aren't optimised on Kindle. Next time I would buy this in paperback. But still, highly recommended.
A little biased, in my opinion but what isn't these days! However I didn't finish it as I decided half way through that a balanced approach would be most sensible and moved on to Annabel Karmel for a little more 'how to' than theory! It is quite satisfying to understand what baby led weaning really means - I feel ever so slightly smug each time I hear a lady proudly telling anyone who will listen that she is doing this with her little one - as she spoon feds him / her a yogurt!
