Did you know that simple changes in your diet could increase your fertility by 60 percent? That what you eat when you're
pregnant could affect whether your child will need to wear glasses or braces? That increasing your intake of certain
nutrients before you become pregnant could radically decrease your chances of suffering from morning sickness?
In Beautiful Babies, nutrition educator Kristen Michaelis reveals the truth about diet and pregnancy. Based on her
research of the nutrient-rich diets of healthy and fertile populations around the world, she lays out exactly what you
should and shouldn't eat when trying to conceive, during pregnancy, and while breast-feeding. In the first half of the
book she explains the ways industrialized foods can prevent pregnancy, how a low-fat diet can increase your likelihood
of infertility by 85 percent, what to do if breast-feeding doesn't work for you, why babies can't digest cereal, and
gives step-by-step instructions on how and when to introduce your baby's first foods. In the second half of the book she
equips you with more than 50 recipes for incorporating traditional fertility-boosting foods into your diet. Beautiful
Babies provides you with everything you need to know about having a healthy pregnancy and nourishing your growing baby.
