Read from the Book

Excerpt from the Foreword by Jessica Alba:Dr. Jennifer Lang and I have very similar health rules for moms: Know exactly what's going into and on your body. Creating a safe environment for your baby begins the day your baby begins to grow in the womb. As you'll learn in The Whole 9 Months, the food choices you make can have lasting effects on the long-term health of your children, including their brain and organ development, and even their future food preferences. Plus, how you eat during pregnancy can lay the foundation for good eating habits for life. Just think: if you develop their penchant for veggies early on, you probably won't have to create a kids' meal and an adult meal-you will all be eating the same thing!It can be daunting to sift through the claims on food packaging and to try to figure out what will nourish your family and what's just a gimmick developed to make you believe that a processed, additive-laden food is a smart choice. That's where this book comes in. Dr. Lang focuses on what you can and should eat-she's done all the hard work of research and makes choosing healthy food for yourself and your baby so very easy. It's the book I wish I'd had with my pregnancies with Honor and Haven. As moms and health activists, Dr. Lang and I are crusaders for healthy eating and safer non-toxic home products. We both know the joys and anxieties of pregnancy firsthand, and I'm thrilled that Dr. Lang has put her valuable knowledge into these pages. This book provides fact-based advice that you can trust from a doctor who is also a mom. With this book in your hand, you are on your way to putting your health first and setting your baby up for lifelong wellness.
