Book Description

5 Mar 2009
By the age of nine months, many babies want to start feeding themselves but can't yet handle a spoon, which is when finger foods come into their own. They're also great to offer to toddlers who are prone to go into 'meltdown' just before dinner. This essential collection of tempting, nutritious finger foods features 100 quick and easy recipes, including fresh fruit ice lollies - perfect for soothing sore gums - goujons of fish and raw vegetables with dip, that will not only introduce your baby to new textures and tastes but will make for a healthy, happy and contented child.

2.0 out of 5 stars Giving nutrition the finger! 5 Jun 2011
By Maria
I have used Annabel Karmel books in the past and I was glad I only got this one out of the library. I figured Annabel was jumping on the baby led weaning band wagon; but no. Or at least if she is, she's missed the point.

There were two things I took inspiration from in here (the tortilla pizza and the quesadillas) but I changed the recipes to make them healthier. That's the alarming thing about this book; so many of the recipes would be high in salt and / or sugar or contain ingredients in them which would be unsuitable for under 1's (e.g. parma ham or honey) but it's not all that obvious that these foods should not be given to kids under 12 months, there is only a comment saying when foods are suitable (which is very few, I counted 19 which included some with added sugar) but no comment saying when they aren't.

Lots of the foods are fried or annoyingly use the grill when oven cooked foods you don't have to watch are easiest with a child and often lower in fat than fried equivalents. Some savoury recipes, e.g. cheese and sweetcorn muffins contain honey! Surely that's not sensible to get kids used to sweet 'savoury' foods?

All in all, really disappointing. What I would expect from AK and this book is a range of recipes suitable from baby led weaners and babies who are first starting to have more 'complicated' finger foods (e.g. 9 months plus) and a genuine consideration of the nutritional content. The recipes I've come up with for my 12 month old are considerably healthier than these.

2.0 out of 5 stars Expect ideas 2 Jun 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this book to get ideas for finger foods for my 8 months old son. I bought this book as I like other Annabel's book but I was very dis appointed. The book does not contain many ideas for so "young" babies and a lot of recipes using sugar that I would like to avoid as long as possible.

4.0 out of 5 stars The next Annabel step 23 Feb 2010
By Zaria
I have used Annabel's Complete Meal Planner since weaning my little boy but when it came to the next step I wasn't sure how to get him eating when he couldn't hold cutlery yet. I checked out Annabel's other books and this one was the perfect solution. With tons of recipes / ideas on things to cook and prepare that kids can pick up with their hands I found it inspiring and fun. My little boy is yet to refuse anything I have cooked! Some of the dishes look a little complicated but I think I will venture into them as time goes on, they look amazing. I'm sure I was never fed food like this when I was a kid!

I used this along side the baby led weaning cookbook and found the recipes perfect for a growing toddler, and Mum and Dad have to admit to enjoying some of them too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun and appealing ideas for little ones !! 18 Aug 2009
I've just introduced my daughter (8 months) to finger foods and have found this book a helpful guide to get me started. I found the `Good first finger foods' list useful and I'm sure (when ready) the list for `Finger foods for older babies' will also become a helpful quick reference guide. Recipes are broken down into sections which cover: breakfast bites, versatile veg, fun fish, finger-licking chicken, meaty mouthfuls, simply snacks and sweet treats. Alongside each recipe information is provided on prep time, cooking time, how many portions it makes and if it's suitable for freezing. It also indicates on (approx 20) recipes if it's suitable for children under 1 years old (french toast fingers, eggy bread, veggie balls, salmon fishcakes, parmesan chicken fingers, mini meatballs, yoghurt orange and lemon mini cupcakes to name a few ....). The book also highlights foods that are choking hazards and what to do if it happens. It also introduces ideas on food to give your baby to help whilst teething. Overall I'd recommend this book for new, imaginative and fun cooking ideas to complement other healthy alternatives.

I was very excited when this book came out as there are not that many "finger food" books out there. Yes for someone who claims to be a children's "healthy food" guru, there sure are a lot of recipes for fried foods (fried fish, fried mozzarella, french fries, chicken fingers). Additionally if you are looking to make finger foods, you are most likely looking for simple ideas - who has time to make mini-burgers, mini-pizzas and mini-cupcakes with kids? Finally, the book is divided into meal types (breakfast, dessert, meat, veggies etc...) which is not helpful in terms of knowing what you can offer your baby at what age stage. Very disappointing, you'd be better off just following your own favorite recipe books but making things in smaller, more baby-friendly sizes.
