    Great book that gets you started on nutrition!

    Loved the book! I did not want it to end. Gives a great base on nutrition pregnant for the first time.

    Lively and Fun Information

    What a perfect book for all grandparents-to-be to give their expectant, or soon-to-be expectant, daughters and daughters-in-law. Much better than our outdated and possibly resented advice! Although this book is so delightful, Grandma will probably read it first, buy another copy, and keep one for herself.
    Largeman-Roth takes the reader on the journey from pre-pregnancy through the child's birth and breast feeding. As an encouraging, never judgmental coach, she explains how pregnant mothers can best take care of themselves and their babies by discussing what foods are healthiest and why. In a supportive tone, she offers the mother-to-be realistic advice on everything from food cravings, to dealing with gas, to healthy snacks, to eating out at fast food places to drinking enough water to best equipping your kitchen.
    Largeman-Roth must have a great sense of humor--this book is fun! It's also remarkably easy to read and understand despite the large amount of nutritional information it contains. There is nothing dry or boring in "Feed the Belly". Largeman-Roth makes it all seem simple. She comes across like a helpful confidante who wants you to follow her advice without being compulsive about eating healthy.
    There's a whole chapter on exercise--something that other pregnancy nutrition books skip completely. It includes a list of places to buy hard-to-find maternity exercise clothes, as well as a list of yoga poses that are safe for pregnancy. With obesity such a looming issue these days, Largeman-Roth does the reader a great service by encouraging pregnant women to get--and stay--active. And that's good news for our grandkids too.

    Belly Up

    If you're trying to get pregnant or are pregnant, this is a book to have on your must-read list! These days when pregnant women everywhere are told what to eat and what not to eat and considering that eating is one of the things always on our minds, it's nice to have a guide that takes all of these things into consideration. This book not only discusses amounts of nutrients needed and how to get them, but yummy recipes to use that are "pregnancy safe". It's an easy read that will give you many, "I didn't know that!" moments. My favorite parts of the book are the "Belly Tips." Small tips throughout each chapter that provide you with creative ideas to use like -- how to drink more water and get more folic acid. Seems simple, but Largeman-Roth really provides easy tips that make you say, "What a great idea!" You'll love it from beginning to end.
