Following the success ofReal Food, Nina PlancksReal Food for Mother and Babyexplains 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 groundbreakingReal 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. InReal 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 controversialher op-ed in theNew York Timeson 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 changedwhole foods are bestbut 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 Babywill be the new classic on eating for two.
