‘Eating for Pregnancy: Your Essential Month-by-Month Nutrition Guide and Cookbook’ has won the Gold/1st Place award in the 2020 Feathered Quill Book Awards Program for the Informational category.
Written by specialists in perinatal nutrition, OB/GYN, and high-risk pregnancies, EATING FOR PREGNANCY, published by Da Capo Lifelong Books (an imprint of Hachette Book Group) is the ultimate nutrition guide and cookbook for moms-to-be.
Feathered Quill Book Awards Judges’ comment on the book saying:
– Content: score of 50 out
of 50! I can’t imagine how you would improve this
– Editorial: A LOT of work
went into this. All lists, indexes, tables, etc. are perfect
– This book took a lot of
work, from the recipes to the information in every section. I don’t know about the wealth of “diet” books
on the market for pregnant women, but this one is broad in scope and I can see
how it would help one and all.
Every pregnant woman
understands that what she eats and drinks affects the baby growing within her,
but many don’t have the time or energy to ensure they’re always eating right.
EATING FOR PREGNANCY walks readers through pregnancy month-by-month to cover
developmental highlights, body changes, and nutritional needs of the mother and
baby. Each chapter shares delicious, healthful recipes that put a special
emphasis on the nutrients that mother and baby need that month, during
preconception, the nine months of pregnancy, and the postpartum period. Each of
the 150 recipes highlights optimal nutrients for mom and her growing baby, and
provides handy nutritional breakdowns and complete meal ideas.
This new edition of EATING FOR PREGNANCY has been completely revised and updated with:
• 25 brand-new recipes and updated classics, with more quick and easy dishes, more vegan and vegetarian recipes and variations, and more gluten-free and dairy-free options
• The most up-to-date, research-based information on daily intakes, supplements, nutrient sources, environmental concerns, common annoyances, exercise, and high-risk pregnancies
• A unique, revolutionary month-by-month approach that makes meal planning, shopping, cooking, and eating a tasty and nutritious experience for mom and the whole family.

PREGNANCY’s low-carb meal plans, recipe variations, and weekly menus cater to
moms who develop diabetes during pregnancy and those who enter pregnancy with
preexisting diabetes. This new edition also covers the fourth trimester
