The first 25 pages are detailed general advice on how to introduce new foods, understanding truths and myths, and in particular addressing special diets, a bit of advice for vegetarians and allergy issues. Then the rest of the book is divided into three sections: Stage one, up to six months; Stage two, six to nine months; and Stage three, 10 to 12 months.
Stage one has lots of information on preparing foods, what first foods should be, the specialness of the very first spoonful and how you should feed the baby. There are then about ten recipes as well as a number of purée suggestions.
Stage two has the most information: this is the section for a baby who has begun to eat quite well, and there are many different purée recipes such as Pumpkin and Pea, or Salmon and Corn Chowder. Also puddings, bringing the number of recipes in this section to about 25. These are proper recipes, which will take a little time to prepare, but there's also lots of advice about freezing and how to do all this relatively sensibly so you don't spend your whole life cooking tiny meals.Read more ›
Great all rounder but not an essential buy as most of the information can be found with a quick google search or going to annabel karmels webpage!
I was in two minds whether to choose this book or to go for the baby led weaning system which is fashionable at the moment. I started using this intending to more on to BLW later but I didn't as I found the recipes in this book worked so well I didn't want to change to BLW.
Primarily this was because it was fun. The recipes are very easy to cook and take max 20 minutes but usually much less. And Annabel Karmel knows what babies like and it was a real joy introducing him to such a wide variety of food and flavours, from the very first spoonfuls you're offered a wide variety of choice to feed your baby. In addition the food in this book is packed with fruit and veg and moves on to quite complex flavours fairly quickly.
The variety of food won out over BLW for me - he really introduced to such a cross section of food and so many different flavours that I didn't want to change. I felt BLW would exclude too many foods and wouldn't introduce him to so many flavours as there is a temptation to stick to easy finger foods and exclude things that may be to messy. Also if you're giving him things on a spoon he is introduced to things which he perhaps may not pick out himself on a plate and therefore this method seems to introduce your child to a far wider range of flavours.
He is now a toddler and will eat anything and is particularly fond of fruit and veg, and also very adventurous and likes to try new things. He's very into garlic, Turkish and Mediterranean food and I credit this with the early way he was introduced to food using the methods in this book.
I would recommend this book to anybody, it was so enjoyable to use and had such great results.
