If you are planning for a baby or already pregnant, this book is designed to help you choose, prepare and enjoy good food, fuss-free. Pregnancy can be a wonderfully exciting time, but it also comes with mood swings, physical changes and plain old tiredness. The good news is that what you eat, even before you are pregnant, not only has a vital impact on the health of your baby, but on your overall well-being throughout your pregnancy - and beyond. Complete with reliable facts and appetizing, nutritious, no-nonsense recipes and meal ideas, this book aims to be a trustworthy guide to help you deal with the 'is it safe to eat?' worries, 'have I got the energy to cook it?' issues and reap all the benefits of a healthy diet.
