I was looking for a book to give me guidance on what to eat when pregnant, and also some good recipes. I had been very impressed with the amount of information in What to Expect when you're Expecting so decided to give this book a try.

The book is written in a similar format as What to Expect when you're Expecting, i.e. black and white, no images etc. Part 1 discusses how to eat well, while Part 2 focuses on the recipes themselves. Part 1 was quite helpful and well written; it discusses what is meant by eating well and what to eat when dealing with morning sickness, cravings, food aversions, constipation, gassiness and heartburn. It also explains how much weight you should gain and has a chart so you can plot this. There is a section on the vitamins and minerals required, pregnancy diet, and eating safely which includes food hygiene and which foods to avoid.

The recipes include nutritional information per portion so that you can compare this against the amount you are meant to be getting each day as described in the pregnancy diet section in chapter 1.

There is nothing wrong with this book at all - if you want to follow everything by the book during your pregnancy this might be interesting; however I did not really want to plot my weight on a chart or monitor everything I ate each day - I tried this for a few days and in the end decided that I instinctively knew what I wanted / needed to eat. I did find the section on food safety useful, though much of this information can be found for free on the internet.

As far as the recipe section goes, I have tried a few of these which were tasty enough but I found that what I was eating was already pretty balanced.

I think this book is very thorough on giving a detailed view on what nutrition is and what our bodies need. However, I was disappointed to see how the book suggests that a half-eaten grilled cheese sandwich can count as 1 grain and 1 protein source and how store bought OJ fortified with Vitamin D can count as 1 fruit, 1 Vitamin D and 1 Vitamin C source for pregnant ladies. For me, these are not suggestions I would incorporate in my daily meal plan. I personally do not consume any of those things and I see a lack of emphasis on plant based food consumption. I don’t think I really learned anything knew from this book. I think this book is for pregnant ladies that need a 101 on nutrition but not for ladies who already have an established diet and a vast knowledge of nutrition.

This book is well written and suited what I was looking for. There are many helpful sections with tips and advise. It does provide a good over view but there are times that I am sure I will be on the look out for more indepth information on certain things that might crop up. I am sure it wont be my only pregnacy read, but it is one I will keep coming back to for advice and reassurance.

This is a great book, lots of interesting meal ideas etc.
Even if you aren't pregnant yet. The main point of the book is eating well, which is just as important when trying to conceive too!

Very helpful, though probably not to everyone. I found it to be an eye opener on all the things I should and shouldn't be eating. Delivered on time and in excellent condition.
