Pregnancy is that period in a woman’s life when she undergoes physiological changes for which a special diet is important. Since the pregnant woman has to ‘eat for two’, she must ensure that her diet is as nutritious as possible. Nutritious Recipes For Pregnancy would act as a guidebook towards helping them get their nutrition and diet right, right through the 9 months.

Essentially, Dalal’s book is a ready reference material that lists out various healthy food items that women could consume during pregnancy. The recipes included in the text are wholesome and nutritious, that cater to the increased nutrient requirement of the body. The author has taken care to categorize the recipes based on the nutrients they are rich in. So, moms-to-be can find in the book a section on iron-rich recipes, and similarly, other sections with recipes rich in proteins, calcium, vitamins, and fibre and antioxidants. Importantly, the recipes given in Nutritious Recipes For Pregnancy are simple to prepare, and are sure to appeal to pregnant women even with their unusual cravings for food.
Alongside, the book also provides some interesting information on how to remain healthy, and on how to maintain the well-being of the fetus.

There is also information provided on the specialized nutrient requirements during pregnancy, and a brief explanation of why some nutrients are more vital than others during these nine months. This will make readers more aware of the what’s and why’s of nutrient consumption during gestation.
