Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this updated and revised edition of the out-of-print Pickles and Ice Cream (1982), the authors provide a thorough review of current research findings on prenatal nutrition. They include ``quick quizzes'' to assess nutritional knowledge; Recommended Daily Allowance tables and charts; and a useful chapter on the dangers of food additives, caffeine, and alcohol. While this book is for general readers as well as health-care professionals, it unfortunately tends to read like a textbook. Another pregnancy nutrition guide that is easier and much more fun to read while providing medical accuracy is What To Eat When You're Expecting by best-selling authors Arlene Eisenberg, Heidi Murkoff, and Sandee Hathaway ( LJ 11/15/86). An optional purchase.-- Angela Washington-Blair, Brookhaven Coll. Learning Resource Ctr., Farmers Branch, Tex.
