Format: Hardcover
An excellent guide for anyone feeding a child old enough to have sense of independence, but young enough to have difficulty with the etiquette of cutlery! The basic information sections should help compile a storecupboard of easily obtainable and useful fallback ingredients, and the recipes are easy to follow, and often quick to make. The results have the approval of my 20 month old child!! The aim is to provide good, nutritious and non-faddy meals which are easily (and not too messily) eaten without use of cutlery - although we have progressed, helped by the dips section of this book, to more use of a spoon, via vbegatble and fruit finger and mini pittas. The author wanted to make mealtimes fun and enjoyable, instead of a battleground, and I think succeeds. Particular highpoints - mini muffins (as popular with grown up family as small people), fishcakes and homemade ketchup and guacamole. My only criticism, if I had to make one, is that the use of cartoon style drawings may be more attractive to the children eating the food than adults preparing it, and I would have like to see proper pictures of the intended end results - but frankly, this is being picky in the extreme with a book I have been very well pleased with and have made much use of! I would happily recommend this to any parent who likes to know what goes into their child's food, and wants to be confident that the food will literally go down well, but doesn't want to spend hours scouring shops for exotic and hard to find ingredients, or hours preparing and cooking meals. The guidance on storage and freezing is exceptionally clear and concise, and the nutritional information extends to a short specific note on every dish included, as well as general comment. A small but invaluable guide!

Great little book, good and not to difficult recipes that are often quite quick, and ideal for a little person very keen on independence just like my little one.
Helpful info on freezability, easy to adapt, if you wish to, with a realistic philosophy aiming for stress-less mealtimes.
I would recommend this book (and have done so) to all my friends.

Alleluia! A book that aims to have babies and toddlers eating 'grown-up' food. In today's culture of kiddy menus, and food marketed purely at children, we need a lot more of this kind of book. And the recipes are lovely. The healthy banana cakes get rave reviews all around, even when made by me!

Despite being called Finger Food for Babies and Toddlers, other than the simple cooked vegetables, virtually all the recipes are rubbish as finger food. They are indeed tasty, but disintegrate at the slightest squeeze. As 7 month old babies squeeze everything tightly, it is hardly useful for feeding them. I would not recommend this to people who are using baby led weaning.

Highly recommended. This book contains great recipes which my son has really enjoyed and are quick and easy to cook using everyday food. Nutritional value of foods are broken down for each recipe which is really useful for any mother worried about what they are giving their little ones. I must have buy!!

This was one of the cookbooks I used the most when weaning my son - we did BLW and there are some really fantastic, easy, and healthy recipes in here.

To the reviewer who thought that it wasn't a good cookbook because of adding salt, I suspect you didn't read her introduction, in which she states quite clearly that salt (and Marmite) should not be used if making recipes for children under one. Additionally, regarding frying - babies and toddlers need plenty of fat in their diets to help healthy brain development, so there's no need to panic on that score! I used olive oil to saute anything that needed frying, and didn't use massive amounts, so did not feel that the recipes were unhealthy at all.

My son loved all the recipes that we tried in this book, and there were plenty - some great basics to try!

what i didn't realize about this book is the author is a vegetarian too which has made this book evan better. it has the veggie option and an alternative for meat and fish eaters. i bought this book for my 7 month old who refuses to be spoon fed. the ideas are fantastic and my daughter can really get stuck in and my two and half year old can help me make them too, AND enjoy eating the same things as she always seems to want what her little sister has. have recommended to my friends and would to anyone!

My 20 month old son is very choosy about what he eats, but loves savoury and sweet biscuits and snacks (much to my horror). As well as the huge selection of recipes in this book, there are also recipes for biscuits, snacks and treats so at least I know he's not eating processed junk. Each recipe gives details of the 'nutritional value' in plain English. I'm writing this review today as I'm in Amazon to order a copy for a girlfriend having similar eating problems with her 13 month old girl.
