<h3>COVER STORY</h3> <h4>Fertility food</h4>


Fertility food - Prof Wayne Cutfield's advice on what to eat for conception and a healthy baby.

In this week's issue, Jennifer Bowden reports on how diet and lifestyle are crucial not only for getting pregnant but also for the long-term health of the child, yet many women who are trying to conceive fail to follow the basic rules. Also in this issue, faced with so much conflicting advice about her baby-to-be, science journalist Linda Geddes investigates the truth behind the headlines, guidelines and old wives' tales; Kiwi journalist Glen Johnson gives a glimpse of the horror of Syria's civil war through the eyes of a father and his young daughter; Guyon Espiner speaks with former NZ politician Simon Power about his banking business; and after taking each of his young sons on separate trips to Europe, Paul Yates has found that one parent and one child is a great formula for cheaper and more enjoyable family travels.
