    I’m not pregnant or expecting but ordered this book for myself because of the alcohol free healthy mocktail recipes. Not only does this book include yummy and healthy recipes but it also has some great nutritional and pregnancy advice for expecting parents. I’ll be giving this as a baby shower gift from here on out!

    I was substituting meals with Perrier and not eating/drinking properly before my pregnancy as a result; this helped a lot and made it fun!

    Honestly, this book is equally great for pregnant women and non-drinkers who want to be part of the party, minus the alcohol, and nutrition value is a definite bonus!
