I am something of a River Cottage addict, and, with a 2 year old at home, when I noticed this book appearing in my recommendations I had a closer look. I did hesitate on whether to order it or not, given that I don't own any other books specifically aimed at feeding children. A read reveals that is an absolute bible on feeding your child - from breastfeeding all the way through to adulthood. Throughout the book preaches a message of trying to relax and give your child a balanced varied diet.

Before getting into the recipes, the book gives advice on a number of areas including why to cook for your children - ranging from the better taste, control in what goes in to reducing packaging. Good food shopping is next on the list. All fairly obvious, but it does set the book firmly in the River Cottage corner. Despite providing a normal index at the back, Nikki gives a very thorough and useful 6 page table, split up by vegetable/fruit, giving when it is in season, how to store it, what do with a glut and where the recipes are in the book. Glut ideas - for apples - range from pureeing to grating to use in cakes, coleslaw and burgers. This Raw Ingredients chapter ends with the things to avoid - E-numbers, processed foods and too much sugar/salt and the wrong sort of fat.

The next chapter is The First Year - the great food adventure begins. This chapter includes breastfeeding, formula feeding, milk (even what formula to choose),when to wean, weaning, allergenic food and reluctant eaters.

Nutrition - what exactly does your child need - follows next.

really great book, discusses baby led and 'standard' weaning and really promotes a mix of the two to suit you - ideal in my opinion and just what i was looking for
lovely recipes, healthy, simple and lots of tips too

I've made many of the recipes from this book for my son and the rest of the family. Great for weaning and toddler stages

The first half of the book is general advice about weaning babies, dealing with fussy toddlers etc, so do be aware it's not just a book of recipes. The recipes themselves are all generally easy, nutritious and appealing to my toddler. I especially like the low/no refined sugar cakes and muffins etc, as I'm far happier giving my toddler this kind of "treat" than either sugary stuff off the shelf or hideously expensive alternatives from the baby food aisle. Most of the recipes can be modified or mixed up with other things or used as a basis other things. Loads of freezer friendly stuff too so I double up quantities sometimes and stock up.

I was originally unsure whether to buy this book because of some of the more negative reviews but being a huge fan of River Cottage I kept coming back to it and decided to buy in the end. I am glad I did, the book has some nice recipes and ideas for finger food and purées. I have already earmarked quite a few recipes I would like to try - including the polenta chips and some lovely looking muffins. The book is not written by Hugh FW but is in the same vein as his writing and recipes, it has the River Cottage essence. I would say if you are a fan of the other River Cottage cookbooks go for it.

I bought this book when my second child was a young baby and over the past 18 months it has become my one of my favourite cookbooks. I like it so much that I bought two more copies and gave them away as presents to new mothers.
I liked that it had ideas for purees (as well as good advice on the best way to prepare and store particular vegetable or fruit in the puree form) as well as finger foods for babies, and I like that it has lots of meal ideas that are suitable for young children but also for adults. This was very important because we eat dinner together and I do not want to cook two (or three!) separate meals. Some recipes have become our family favourites: carrot and lentil soup (I seem to make it every few weeks!) and fish pasta bake, or the pumpkin steamed pudding--the latter was one of my son's favourite finger foods when he was an older baby. There were very few flops: the only recipe that did not turn out well were sultana buns.

Great recipes for babies! Love that it includes recipes for BLW and recipes are divided into seasons to include seasonal fruit and veg accordingly.

Some great ideas and most of them very quick and easy. I love the fact the receipes are adapted for adults/babies and toddlers which saves making different meals every night. Thank you!
