Nothing is more important than a momÆs (and dad's) diet and lifestyle before and during pregnancy: it can set the stage for a lifetime of good health for their baby. But if mom's or dad's diet is severely lacking, it could program their baby for birth defects or chronic disease like heart disease or diabetes later in life. Eating Expectantly is the most comprehensive and up-to-date pregnancy nutrition book available. This edition has a focus on eating cleaner and greener and helps moms decide when it's best to buy organic, as well as which cleaning and beauty products are safe.
