The Fertility Diet, Eating for Two, and Baby's First Foods

Following the success of Real Food, Nina Planck's Real Food for Mother and Baby explains why real food is better for a woman and her child. Nina Planck, one of the great food activists, changed the way we view old-fashioned foods like butter with her groundbreaking Real Food. Then 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 misguided 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. 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.
