Following the success of "Real Food," Planck''s new classic on eating for two explains why real food is better for woman and child.
From the Publisher:
The food-activist author of Real Food challenges popular nutrition advice for expectant and new moms, explaining the value of traditional whole foods while addressing such topics as meat and sodium intake during pregnancy, the importance of specific solid foods in a baby's diet, and the importance of quality fats and proteins in a child's first years. Original.
Following the success of Real Food, Nina Planck's 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 paper's most e-mailed articles- she's no contrarian. Readers applaud her candor; they also trust her research and welcome her advice.

Nina's basic premise hasn't 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 doesn't prevent allergies. Cereals are not the best foods for tiny eaters; meat and egg yolks are better. From conception to two years, the body's 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.
Nina Planck, the author of REAL FOOD, continues her discussion of the value of whole foods in this guide to eating well for conception, pregnancy, and postpartum. A proponent of ancient foods, raw milk, and meat, Planck shares an abundance of information about healthy eating through the lens of her own pregnancy. Although considered controversial by some (raw meat mixed with eggs and olive oil for babies in place of cereal), the book is filled with compelling evidence and readable personal stories.


"Plank gives more comprehensive pre-pregnancy and pregnancy diets than those in WHAT TO EXPECT and her lively, genuine and personal approach makes it easy to absorb a lot essential information." 06/08/2009
