Book Description

March 20 2003
Every pregnant woman recognizes that what she eats, drinks, and does with her body directly affects the developing baby within her. Yet mothers-to-bebetween juggling work, other children, and their many other responsibilitiesoften don't have the time that they'd like to devote to their nutrition. Now, Eating for Pregnancy addresses the nutritional needs of pregnant women today, helping them navigate through frozen food aisles and prepared food sections and prepare homemade meals as healthy and easy as possible. Authors Jones and Hudson provide reassuring, up-to-date nutritional information; shopping and eating tips to keep nutrient-intake high and unnecessary weight-gain to a minimum; and guilt-free, smart-choice convenience and semi-prepared food options. Their more than 120 recipes, organized into six main sections, are high in vitamins, iron, calcium, protein, and fiber and moderate in amounts of fat, sodium, and sugar. Each recipe highlights "What's in this for baby and me?" and includes complete nutritional breakdowns and meal planning advice; many offer suggestions for substitutions and other timesaving shortcuts. Eating for Pregnancy also caters to women with gestational diabetes with diabetic tips and ADA exchange values. A vegetarian chapter offers essential advice to pregnant vegetarians along with inspiring recipes. Eating for Pregnancy is the only book that combines the experience of a professionally trained cook and writer turned home cook and mother with the expertise and experience of a perinatal nutritionist who sees hundreds of clients a year.

Product Details

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Aiming to fill a gap in the market, Jones has collaborated with perinatal nutritionist Hudson to produce a volume that combines both recipes and nutritional advice aimed specifically at the mother-to-be. Delicately balancing optimum and unnecessary weight gain with the required dietary needs for a healthy lifestyle, Jones and Hudson also addresses the requirements of diabetic, vegetarian and vegan diets. After an introduction providing a summary of needs and goals, the authors start with breakfast and move through the usual soups, salads and mains before finishing with desserts. A full chapter is dedicated to the vegetarian diet, and at the beginning of each chapter recipes are highlighted to indicate that they conform to a vegan diet. Each section contains recommended pantry items for the recipes. Along the way Jones makes full use of convenience and semi-prepared ingredients to provide simple yet flavorful dishes, while Hudson doles out advice on vitamins, health hazards and goals. Each recipe is preceded with the nutritional goal for baby and mother-to-be and followed by tips for cooking, storage, health, special diets as well as complete meal ideas, variations and the approximate nutritional content. Appendixes on weight, sources of nutrition from calcium to iron and food safety round out the book. Despite the book's wordiness and repetition in places there is an overwhelming amount of information.

3.0 out of 5 stars Things have changed since this was published Nov. 21 2006
Overall a good book, however, two important items have been left out:

1. Omega-3 Oils (Fatty Acids). An incredibly important nutrient that was unfortunately missed out. The topic should have been covered with details on the complexity in supplements and the mercury issue, though this was covered in the fish section in general.

2. Peanut Butter. This is suggested in a number of recipes and the book does not cover the current belief that families susceptible to allergies (asthma, etc..) should avoid peanuts. This topic should be covered at least to let people decide for themselves as well as providing alternatives.

Also, I did find the fact that it assumed that the woman was going to be doing the cooking a touch out of date with my generation - neutralising the gender assumptions would improve the book.

Overall, I would give it three and a half stars if I could - but alas I cannot. I would recommend that people use this as a firm foundation, but also do your own research on sites like the FDA.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great nutritional information and recipes Nov. 23 2006
By K N
Not only is this a great cookbook with plenty of recipe ideas for nutritious food you can eat during and after your pregnancy, but it also contains a wealth of information about nutrition. Each recipe includes nutritional information, the "what's in it for baby and me" lowdown (e.g. "protein, vitamin A, folic acid, etc.") and tips on cooking, storing, advance preparation and ideas on what to pair the recipe with in order to make a complete meal. The appendices are fantastic, including lists of foods that are great sources of iron, calcium, folic acid, fibre, etc. Highly recommended! One of my favourite pregnancy books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tasty, innovative and nutritious recipes June 9 2003
Every recipe we've tried has been terrific: the ricotta cheese pancakes, the crab cakes with red pepper sauce, the turkey burgers, the cheese and spinach quesadillas... These are definitely recipes we'll keep using even after our baby is born, and ones we've already shared with friends and family (both pregnant and not). The authors include nutritional information for each recipe, as well as tips for variations and saving time while preparing the recipes. Highly recommended!
