Did you know that simple changes in your diet could increase your fertility by 60%? Did you know that what you eat when you're pregnant could affect whether or not your child grows up to need glasses or braces? Did you know that increasing your intake of certain nutrients prior to pregnancy could radically decrease your chances of having morning sickness?
In Beautiful Babies, nutrition educator Kristen Michaelis uncovers the truths about diet and pregnancy. Based on her research of the nutrient-rich diets of fertile populations around the world, she breaks down exactly what you should and shouldn't eat while trying to conceive, during pregnancy, and while breastfeeding. The book discusses how soy can prevent pregnancy, how eating a low-fat diet can make you 85% more likely to be infertile, what to do if breastfeeding doesn't work for you, how babies can't digest cereal, and gives step-by-step instructions on how and when to introduce your baby's first foods. Beautiful Babies lays out everything you need to know about having a healthy pregnancy and nourishing your growing baby.
