Don’t just take our
word for it.

“An absolute life saver during my pregnancy! When diagnosed with gestational diabetes I was totally clueless and scared to eat anything. This wonderful book took away all of that and made meal and snack times easier again. I have literally used it every single day! No idea what I would do without it, as I’d just be guessing the carbs! I plan to use this book after my pregnancy as it’s just so useful! I highly recommend, as it has made my pregnancy a whole lot easier.”

Mrs G

“Brilliant photographic aide if you are diagnosed with gestational diabetes. This book is a life-saver including recipes and visual guides to all the carbohydrates.”


“I have tried quite a few recipes so far and I love being able to look up the carb content in foods easily. I am usually an online person but love having an actual book to refer to when my toddler hijacks my phone!”
