“Eating for Pregnancy” Wins Gold/1st Place Award in the 2020 Feathered Quill Book Awards

‘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.

Additionally, EATING FOR PREGNANCY is the only pregnancy nutrition-cookbook with substantive advice and recipes for women with diabetes. Gestational diabetes is one of the most common complications of pregnancy with rates increasing every year. It is the only high-risk condition that requires a special meal plan and lifestyle. EATING FOR 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 offering moms supportive advice with postpartum depression, breastfeeding and weight loss.

“a completely revised and updated book that includes everything you will need (and more) to know before, during, and after the birth of your child. There is a bounty of information for women in all of the stages of the pregnancy process… this is the ultimate pregnancy book.” ~ San Francisco Book Review
