The Yummy Mummy - Nadia Holland
‘The Yummy Mummy’ is the perfect book for new mums looking to get back into shape after childbirth, from a woman who knows first-hand what works and what doesn’t.
Mum-of-two, Nadia Holland put on an extra 30 kilos during pregnancy. After the birth of her first baby, she slowly shed this additional weight, only to frustratingly put it all back on again when she fell pregnant with her second child. As Nadia recognised, her attitude towards diet needed to change; ‘My biggest mistake was that I treated my first pregnancy as a nutritional free for all.’ Based on Nadia’s own weight-loss journey as she gradually (and healthily) shifted the weight after her second child, ‘The Yummy Mummy’ is the author’s tried and tested post-natal nutrition and exercise toolkit for real mums.
In collaboration with a registered dietician, Nadia has devised a healthy eating programme with nourishing, family-friendly and budget-conscious recipes, together with an easy-to-follow illustrated exercise plan, specifically intended to shift the post-baby bulge.
