Explore the science behind your nutritional needs and the impact that your diet can have on pregnancy. With practical advice from Rhiannon Lambert, a leading nutritionist and Sunday Times bestselling author of The Science of Nutrition, this book helps you prepare for each stage of pregnancy."
Recognizing the vacuum of readily available nutritional information to guide people through pregnancy, Deliciously Healthy Pregnancy is the myth-busting antidote to a grey area, previously regarded as taboo.

- An expert insight into the key nutrients, minerals, and vitamins that enable a healthy pregnancy
- Includes over 80 recipes to be enjoyed by parents and families, focusing specifically on nutrition for pregnant mothers
- Recipes have been thoroughly researched by a qualified nutritionist specialising in pre and postnatal health, breaking down the science for the reader and enabling them to trust the source of the advice.
Split into two sections, the book starts by breaking down the science behind the advice, exploring the stages of pregnancy and being a new mum, with infographics illustrating the changes to the body, your lifestyle, and diet for mother and baby. Following on from the theory, the second half of the book is the practical side with over 80 flavour-packed recipes.
Recipes can be customized to suit your personal situation: either to target a particular condition or symptom, or to cater for your dietary needs and choices, including vegetarian, vegan, gluten- and dairy-free.
A must-have pregnancy cookbook for couples looking to conceive - this book is useful for both mothers and fathers alike!
