Format: Paperback
Although the book is called "First Foods" it contains more ideas for toddlers than weaning. The weaning section is very thorough and explains food allergys and intolerence well. It tells you which foods are suitable for each age using an easy chart, but lets face it there is only so much that can be said on pureed friut and veg.
The book contains many more ideas for toddlers though and healthy eating is the main focus with lots of ideas on how to make food fun and interesting. The coloured pictures are very clever and show how food can become a piece of artwork that children will love to get their fingers into and eat up.
The recipes are easy to follow and quick to prepare making it an ideal book for parents of fussy eaters!

Format: Paperback
I read this book hoping to find some recipe ideas for weaning my daughter with finger foods. By far the overwhelming idea that the book's recipes convey is how to make food look attractive for the older child. As such, it is less useful for inspiration for Baby's very first foods. Also, some of the ideas, while fun and attractive, seem pretty fiddly, and I wonder how many busy mums really have the time to make their child's dinner look like a clock, house or whatever. I would far rather my child wasn't so fussy that I needed to resort to such ideas (easy to say now before weaning has started!).

The tone is also very bossy "Do do this, don't do that", even though no single person is an authority on what to do about weaning (some of the author's advice contradicts NHS advice, for example, on giving fruit juice to babies). Rather than simply be told not to offer certain foods until a certain age, I would like to understand why and have an explanation. The book was written before the UK Government's advice became to wean at 6 rather than 4 months, and as such the charts on what foods to offer when would be disputed by other experts. I am also likely to take any expert's advice with a pinch of salt if they say on one page "Never give your baby ... Brie or Camembert" and on another "Don't hesitate to introduce soft French cheeses" such as Brie and Camembert!

After reading Miriam's other baby books, this was a little disappointing. The information on weaning is sound but there isn't that much. I did however find it interesting to read to compare the information with that I'd read in other weaning books (Gina Ford and Annabel Karmel). I found that the recipes are more tailored to toddlers rather than babies. Some of the recipes are good and will come in useful for the future but if you are looking for assistance in the process of weaning then this book isn't the best buy on the market.
