Book Description

7 Aug 1997

Many vegetarian parents are anxious to feed their children a meat-free diet right from the start but worry that a vegetarian diet may not offer the equivalent range of nutrients. Baby & Child Vegetarian Recipes allays those fears totally, clearly demonstrating that for both children and adults, a vegetarian diet is indisputably a healthier option.

Arranged for easy reference in four sections covering the major milestones in dietary development each section offers general nutritional guidelines, lists of foods to introduce and avoid, and includes a host of practical hints, tips and advice. Suggested weekly menu planners for each age group enable parents to tailor time and supermarket runs to provide the best possible diet for their child with the minimum of fuss and effort.

Packed with over 150 quick and easy, tried-and-tested veggie recipes, and fully endorsed by The Vegetarian Society, Baby & Child Vegetarian Recipes offers parents a blue print for a healthy, varied diet that will engender a lifetime enjoyment of good, healthy and wholesome food.

Product Description

Amazon Review

Stuck for ideas at tea-time? Looking for meat-free snacks for lunch? Baby and Child Vegetarian Recipes is invaluable to the vegetarian family and will quickly become and old friend in the kitchen. It is packed with more than 150 recipes for babies and toddlers, almost all accompanied and brought to life by comments from the author, Carol Timperley. Her relaxed and very personal approach to the presentation of her family favourites makes this chunky little book particularly unintimidating--something mums and dads will appreciate during the often stressful time of weaning baby and feeding young children.

The five chapters of the book, each introduced with heaps of practical advice including menu charts, cover stages in the development of a child's eating habits from the first taste to toddlerhood. Recipes range from basic purées and staples such as macaroni cheese and bubble and squeak to the more sophisticated Hungarian stuffed marrow and avocado and cottage cheese dip. Recipes are clearly presented and include boxes in which to register your child's reaction--no one is pretending it is always easy to feed youngsters!

An added bonus to this already excellent book are Stephen May's humorous illustrations. The leap-frogging grains of rice and the potatoes enjoying a hot tub are bound to raise a smile and could prove useful for parents wishing to encourage an awareness of cooking in their children. As Carol Timperley says in her introduction: An appreciation of good food is one of the greatest of all gifts you can give your child.

Fully endorsed by the Vegetarian Society and approves by consultant nutritionist Jane Brophy, this book will be an inspiration to busy parents. --Dale Evans

5.0 out of 5 stars The best vegetarian recipe book ever! 22 Oct 2005
By A Customer
I bought this book when weaning my son. I have been veggie since I was 14 and buy a lot of cook books. I was seriously impressed with the recipes - they are so tasty! My whole family enjoys most of the ones I have tried. I loved the chatty style and found the advice useful. I haven't done many of the deserts because my boy is not keen but there are enough sugar free or very low sugar things to try (Fruit doesn't need a recipe really does it?)
We have all enjoyed the Lentil Hotpot, Barley pot but our all time favorite is the Spinach and Mushroom Lasagna - utterly sublime!
I tend to "adapt" recipes to ingredients that I have but I would recommend following her recipes at least once as the combinations are amazingly tasty.
Never mind the weaning or feeding children aspect - this is the best cookbook I have ever bought EVER!

4.0 out of 5 stars YUMMY FOOD 12 Nov 2004
By A Customer
This is a good book to give you pointers with vegetarian weaning. I found the early chapters most useful as to what to give to baby when first weaning, being a new mum I had no idea.
The recipies are easy to follow and have a happy/sad face next to them so you can mark if baby likes them it not.
I would recommed trying the baby museli and chocolate pudding recpies as baby loves these.
On the downside some of the portion sizes are a large, partculalry if you make a dish and baby does not like it.
Overall a good book to dip into for inspiration for baby and toddler meals.

2.0 out of 5 stars Really Disapointing 10 May 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I don't usually review books, but having bought this one on the strength of all the good reviews, feel obliged to do so.

The section on nutrition is very basic- these foods contain this nutrient. But nothing on how much is needed and how much you would get from a certain food.

The recipes themselves are really dreary and old fashioned- they remind me of the food I was eating as a new vegetarian 20 years ago. There's very little foreign food- despite one of the authors having an Indian husband there're only 2 Indian recipes.

The main source of protein is cheese, there are a handful of recipes using tinned beans and lentils, but a huge range of vegetarian protein sources (tofu, tempeh, seitan, quorn, more unusual pulses..) are left completely untouched.

There also seem to be an unnecessary number of sweet recipes, if I wanted to feed my child sugar I could find sweet recipes in any non-vegetarian kids cookbook.

5.0 out of 5 stars Veggie Cooking for babies 26 Jan 2004
I found the recipes in this book went down well with my baby and his older sister. The chapters for older babies/toddlers also contained recipes the whole family can eat, some quite adventureous ones too as quite a few of them contain spices. I only wish I'd had this book while weaning my daughter but better late then never.

4.0 out of 5 stars numm, numm 5 Mar 2004
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My daughter loves this book the recipes are great. Who would have thought at 6 months my daughter could try a very mild curry. Whats more there are recipes in the 6-9 month category I make for hubby and I -the cheesy and potato bake is scrmmy so is the parsnip and apple soup. They are easy to make and most freeze well. Its easy enough to skip the recipes with sugar if you wish - however seeing my babies face light up with chocolare pudding is a delight for me. My only complaint was I found the intro a little preachy. But probably because I had to wean daughter early due to gigantic appetite.

5.0 out of 5 stars highly recommended 21 Sep 2001
By A Customer
Extremely useful and innovative. Plenty of ideas for catering for your vegetarian child without limiting their palate. Far better than relying on supermarket jars and each recipe nuritionally tested and approved.

5.0 out of 5 stars Veggie Weaning & Toddler Food 27 Aug 2003
By A Customer
I used this book for my son and I was surprised how easy it made the whole process of trying to raise a vegetarian child. The receipes are easy and adaptable for adults which means we can all sit down and eat the same meal. The deserts are yummy and easy. I would be lost without this book.

There are some nice ideas but I find sugar is part of too many recipes and the book caters mostly for spoonfeeding from 4 months rather than including baby led weaning.
