Lizzie Vann's organic baby and toddler cookbook is a throughly great book for mother and child. It is full of interesting receipes from 4 months to toddler, it includes meal planners which are great for first time mum's!! To nutritional values of each meal so you know exactly what the most precious thing in your life is getting and the benefits of what your child is eating. The receipes are easy to follow, and preperation times are given, the book is well set out and explains how much to give to your child. I have used this book for my second child and it is like my bible, my daughter loves the meals I prepare for her, from breakfast right through to dinner! The meals can be prepared and frozen, the book explains how long the food can be frozen for or refrigerated, and this is great for working mums who need to freeze the food if time is of the essence. I give this book a five star rating and is a must for any new mum, starting to wean their child.

5.0 out of 5 stars Annabel Karmel's Strong Rival ! 3 Dec 2001
By A Customer
Fantastic book - great, easy recipes with lovely photos. The portion sizes are realistic and the recipes are very original. I must admit I was a little hestitant in trying some of them (such as Veg Korma and Fruity Chicken), but oddly enough my daughter adores those very ones !
I never thought I would end up using more recipes from here than Annabel Karmel's, but I have.
Also the recipes are featured in the Organix range of babyfoods which is nice if you want to test your baby on the jarred version before spending the time cooking your own.
Well done Ms Vann.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recipes that actually taste of something! 19 Nov 2003
By A Customer
I love this book...the author is unafraid to make use of herbs and spices to actually make the meal taste of something. The recipes are easy to follow, and really easy to adapt if you're missing some of the ingredients. The book is fairly short but a great source of inspiration. Home-cooked, the recipes taste far better than their equivalents in jars.

5.0 out of 5 stars And I can't even cook! 2 Nov 2003
By Toni
As a first time mum with little (or no) time on her hands - and about as much talent in the kitchen as my seven-month old, even I can make the meals (and sometimes they even look like the pictures)!!
The recipes in this book are not only extremely tasty, colourful and adaptable, but they are also good for baby (and some are nice for mummy and daddy, too!)
Have confidence in yourself that you can make your own baby food ... and, on days when you can't, at least you have the knowledge that you know EXACTLY what goes into the jars!
Buy this book. Enough said?

5.0 out of 5 stars very good, easy to follow and delicious results. 26 Sep 2001
Unlike ordinary baby food books this one does not advise you to disguise childrens food into a face shape or such. Basic common sense, nutritious food that my sons adore. Especially the burger recipe that consists only of mince, onion, sage and breadcrumbs. Other favourites include, little gourmet macaroni cheese, chicken dippers, fresh & fruity shakes and fruit bread fingers.
A real winner with the whole family, no need to make separate adult meals.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this book - real recipes for real people 31 Jan 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I originally borrowed this from our library! The recipes are not too time-consuming (I write as someone who does not own a food-processor). Unlike many other books, these recipes do not involve lots of weighing or fiddly quarter tsps (usually just a few spoons, whole veg or a measuring jug (floz or ml)) and are easy to multiply if you want a larger quantity. Fine veg chopping is fiddly but worth it. Also, the ingredients are easy to find in a standard store ie tinned butter beans, frozen sweetcorn. I did find other books required things I cannot get ie rice wine vinegar. I have used these recipes so much more than any other, I need to get my own copy! I taste everything before I give it to baby and we both like these. Strangely, on processed food my baby is very fussy, on home-made, she is no trouble.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scrummy goodness for little tummies 13 April 2011
I was given this book by a friend and I love it so much I felt I had to review it.

I have used most of the recipes from 4-15 months (my son is currently 13 months) and I am sure I will continue to use it for many more years to come as he has loved everything I have made from this book. The recipes introduce some quite sophisticated flavours at a young age, which I hope will prevent fussiness later on - so far my son has shown no fussy tendancies.

The recipes are more adventurous than other baby cook books, but without being time consuming or fiddly. The recipes can even be adapted for adults and my husband I tend to also eat most of the things I have made from this book (the meatballs served with roadted root veg are a family hit).

One of the 1 star reviews mentions that it uses ingredients that 4-6 month olds are advised not to have - I also found that it moved onto chunkier food sooner than my son was ready - however I merely waited a few more months and used them a little later than the book suggested as they are fantastic recipes.

A big hit with my family and a book I have recommended to lots of friends.
