Did you know that simple changes in your diet could increase your fertility by 60 percent? That what you eat when you're pregnant could affect whether your child will need to wear glasses or braces? That increasing your intake of certain nutrients before you become pregnant could radically decrease your chances of suffering from morning sickness?
In Beautiful Babies, nutrition educator Kristen Michaelis reveals the truth about diet and pregnancy. Based on her research of the nutrient-rich diets of healthy and fertile populations around the world, she lays out exactly what you should and shouldn't eat when trying to conceive, during pregnancy, and while breast-feeding.
In the first half of the book she explains the ways industrialized foods can prevent pregnancy, how a low-fat diet can increase your likelihood of infertility by 85 percent, what to do if breast-feeding doesn't work for you, why babies can't digest cereal, and gives step-by-step instructions on how and when to introduce your baby's first foods. In the second half of the book she equips you with more than 50 recipes for incorporating traditional fertility-boosting foods into your diet. Beautiful Babies provides you with everything you need to know about having a healthy pregnancy and nourishing your growing baby.

I started out a little skeptical of this book because the author was not a medical doctor, researcher, nor an authority figure; I kept reading and took everything with a grain of salt. I think the author has some interesting, logical, and most important, well-meaning points. I consider some comments written too extreme, but there are others that make me re-evaluate my food choices. I like this because you're always told what not to eat, but you don't hear too much about what to eat or where the source of food comes from is equally important. I took from the book what I thought was useful and was glad that it did make me think twice about certain choices.
