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.
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!
The book was well thought out and the recipes easy to use. Guiding parents through the different stages of weaning was also extremely helpful. The book was not patronising, it just offered practical and level headed advise. My partner, who was even more clueless about feeding babies found it invaluable - he seemed to enjoy the recipes just as much as my daughter!
The information that is given regarding getting started is useful & simple though if you are wanting something more in depth then you would be better off with the Gina Ford Weaning guide.
The food plans were not for us as my son's feeding schedule didn't seem to fit but that doesn't mean it won't work for you.
The very best thing about this book is the recipes. If you are planning to make you own babyfood then do not be without this book the recipes are imaginative & tasty.
After all if this book is good enough for Jamie Olivers children...
The concept of real nutrition seems to have been ignored in favour of fun. While I endorse fun fod for kids, it teaches them nothing if they eat 'fast food alternatives' all the time. I reccomend Karen Sullivan's Commensense Healthcare for Children, which seems to have much, much more of what practical, busy parents need to know. Shame, really. A good book in the making, but it fails to deliver.

It's great for ideas of quick and easy meals that you can stick in the freezer. However I do not agree with Annabel Karmel's approach of pureeing food all the time. Read morePublished 8 days ago by Sarah Ward
