How direct are the correlations between prenatal nutrition and predispositions for cancer, diabetes or heart disease? Very, according to Karin B. Michels, a professor of obstetrics at Harvard Medical School, and Kristine Napier, a director at the Cleveland Heart Clinic, in The Gift of Health: The Complete Pregnancy Diet for Your Baby's Wellness From Before Birth Through Adulthood. After a few conceptual, overarching chapters like ""Eating for Your Child's Future,"" the authors detail optimal diets for prepregnancy and each trimester designed ""to prevent undernutrition in the first and third trimesters, to prevent excessive weight gain in the second and third trimesters, and to maximize the notable nutrients every day of your pregnancy."" Confidence-inspiring explanations behind every suggestion and more than 100 recipes from salads to shakes will gratify mothers-to-be. (Aug.)
