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
Love this book, excellent recipes. So far nothing has been refused by babies. Love the way it's broken down into age range and the detail about texture etc. Very happy xxxxxPublished 2 months ago by Mummy of two
Great recipe ideas, but the author seems to think that every baby is as open to new tastes as her own, and her anecdotes about her own experiences can be wearing.Published 2 months ago by Lisa9898
This is a nice book but seemed a little out of date. It refers to egg white being indigestible by babies but then gives recipes that use the whole egg. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Bess_Wheat
I am actually vegan though great recipes and incorporated it with the baby led weaning. Great to make things from scratch as you can control what is in the food. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Gina
This is a very good book with plenty of veggie recipes but not one that I use daily.Many of the recipes take a long time to cook with lots of different ingredients. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Dearbhla O'Farrell
Lots of recipes to try. Most are quite old school though and make suggestions that don't entirely match current guidelines. Read morePublished 6 months ago by ECM
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.Published 6 months ago by Ms E. Hill
