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.Read more ›
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!

I personally found it a waste of money!! I ended up downloading a baby centre app which told me a lot more than the book did! I would not recommend it!Published on 5 Aug. 2014 by rpsico
