Publisher Comments:

Following the success of Real Food, Nina Plancks Real Food for Mother and Baby explains why real food is better for woman and child.

Nina Planck, one of the great food activists, changed the way we view old-fashioned foods like butter with her groundbreaking Real Food. T hen she got pregnant. Never one to accept conventional wisdom blindly, Nina found the usual advice about pregnancy and baby food riddled with myths and misunderstandings. In Real Food for Mother and Baby, Nina explains why many modern ideas about pregnancy and infant nutrition are wrongheaded and why traditional foods are best. While Nina can be controversial—her op-ed in the New York Times on vegan diets for infants was one of the papers most e-mailed articles— shes no contrarian. Readers applaud her candor; they also trust her research and welcome her advice.

Ninas basic premise hasnt changed—whole foods are best—but some of the details are surprising. Pregnant women need meat and salt, not iron supplements. Nursing will be easier if you act like the mammal you are. Delaying the introduction of certain solid foods doesnt prevent allergies. Cereals are not the best foods for tiny eaters; meat and egg yolks are better. From conception to two years, the bodys overwhelming needs are for quality fat and protein, not for carrots and low-fat dairy. Even as she casts a skeptical eye on the conventional wisdom, Nina is reassuring. She shows you how to keep your baby healthy on good, simple food. Real Food for Mother and Baby will be the new classic on eating for two.

Synopsis:

Following the success of "Real Food," Planck's new classic on eating for two explains why real food is better for woman and child.
