What to Eat When You're Expecting

Arlene Eisenberg, Author, Heidi Murkoff, Joint Author, Sandee Hathaway, Joint Author Workman Publishing $10.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-89480-015-3
This mother-and-daughters team, authors of What to Expect When You're Expecting, present what they call the Best-Odds Diet, a clear, well-informed and easy-to-follow plan that places emphasis on lean protein, plenty of calcium, vitamin C and other minerals and vitamins. (Scaled down, this diet could enhance anybody's health anytime.) Daily requirements are calculated in servings. Ice cream and pickles, as well as any other sugary, salty and overly processed foods, are frowned upon by the authors, but allowances for ""cheating'' are made. The book proceeds from the needs of mother and fetus to changing eating habits to problems like morning sickness and heartburn and what a vegetarian mother should do to ensure correct nutrition. One-hundred tasty and practical recipes follow. (September)
