5.0 out of 5 stars A must for parents facing the weaning process!! 27 May 2004
My husband & I purchased this book on the advice of our health visitor and have not looked back since. The daunting task of weaning our son (he is our first) was made very simple by following the sensible & practical advice about nutrition & the introduction of new foods to babies & toddlers Annabel Karmel offers.
By starting our son slowly on baby rice for the first two weeks as suggested & then gradually introducing more adventurous foods, we now have a healthy, lively & energetic 19 month old, who eats everything that is placed in front of him with no fuss.
The recipes ranging from 'Lovely Lentils, Baked Sweet Potato & Orange' to 'Fillets of Fish in Cheese sauce' have meant that our son has been eating balanced & nutritious meals without additives or preservatives since he was four months old.
The meal planners are invaluable, saving time when there is little by having a weekly straight forward outline that is simple to follow. Freezing recommendations & portion guidelines have halved the time spent in the kitchen as favourite recipes can be stored for use at a later date & we get to spend more time with our son.
For our son's 1st birthday all the dishes were made using this cookbook and the adults loved the variety of food on offer as much as the children. Some family favourites are 'Chicken with cornflakes' & 'My favourite pasta with broccoli'
I highly recommend this book as a first recipe book for parents facing the weaning process.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great for getting started 16 Dec 2008
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this book on the recommendation of so many mums, and it was a great help to get started through the minefield of weaning - I found the first and second stage recipes a great help, although some of the second stage ones are a bit too similar.

Unfortunately, having now reached the 9-12 month section, I'm finding it a bit less useful. The recipes still seem to be based around creating a purée, when my 9-month old is quite happy with lumps and likes finger food. I was also very surprised to see the 9-12 month menu planner with milk feeds 5 times a day, and had hoped for some direction in reducing these.

I notice Amazon package this book with the 100-purée book - having bought one and borrowed the other from the library, I'd say the content is about 90% the same, so save your pennies and just buy one!

By A Customer

This book covers everything from what to introduce, when and how - not only food groups but texture/consistency, meal planners, ideas for toddlers and information about nutrition.
Babies ARE little humans but with different dietry requirements to adults and whilst at the correct stage they can eat what we eat this book gives tips on how to ensure your baby receives a nutritious diet for optimum physical and mental development.
To the reviewer who states you dont have to give avocados, squash etc to be a good mum (have you actually read the book?) indeed you dont but not only are you developing your childs taste buds to accept a large range of nutritious foods but for example studies have revealed a strong correlation between increased glutathione intake and decreased risk of oral and pharyngeal cancer. In addition laboratory analysis has shown that avocados contain 76 mg of beta-sitosterol per 100 g of raw, edible fruit - thus promoting lower cholesterol levels (not to mention the mono-unsaturated fats) - whilst not sampling such foods does not make anyone a "bad mum" I'm sure the majority of parents want to offer such food groups because of the advantages highlighted above.
This book helps parents introduce these foods into the diet in a baby friendly and digestible way and combines them with other foods for maximum benefit (ie, iron with vitamin C to aid absorption)
In my opinion the book is a good balance of recipes and information, enough for you to feel informed without being left baffled which in turn means you can add your own variations to the dishes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic - a must for new mums 6 Dec 2005
This book has been absolutely brilliant in helping me to introduce all kinds of food to my baby who is now nearly 10 months old ( I am still using it). Whilst I am a keen cook and have commom sense, when it comes to feeding babies I was not sure on how adventurous I could be. This book has given me total confidence and some great ideas and my baby has not yet refused any kind of food I have given her. By the way, you do not have to be an advanced cook to use this book.It really makes you think about texture and flavour and avoids your baby having pureed pear for months as some other books suggest. A must have in the kitchen and in baby's tummy!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Baby meal planner made easy! 10 April 2006
My husband and I found this book to be invaluable. We have used it both as a resource to check when & what we should be feeding our little girl, & as a recipe book to make all her foods for her.
She now (at 7 months) has a varied diet including fish, chicken & vegetables that she eats with pleasure & enthusiasm. This book provides great ideas for food combinations that you wouldn't necessarily consider, one of our daughters favourites is banana & avocado.
We think it is essential reading for every parent & will give a copy to all our friends when they have children.
