Stuck for ideas at tea-time? Looking for meat-free snacks for lunch? Baby and Child Vegetarian Recipes is invaluable to the vegetarian family and will quickly become and old friend in the kitchen. It is packed with more than 150 recipes for babies and toddlers, almost all accompanied and brought to life by comments from the author, Carol Timperley. Her relaxed and very personal approach to the presentation of her family favourites makes this chunky little book particularly unintimidating--something mums and dads will appreciate during the often stressful time of weaning baby and feeding young children.
The five chapters of the book, each introduced with heaps of practical advice including menu charts, cover stages in the development of a child's eating habits from the first taste to toddlerhood. Recipes range from basic purées and staples such as macaroni cheese and bubble and squeak to the more sophisticated Hungarian stuffed marrow and avocado and cottage cheese dip. Recipes are clearly presented and include boxes in which to register your child's reaction--no one is pretending it is always easy to feed youngsters!
An added bonus to this already excellent book are Stephen May's humorous illustrations. The leap-frogging grains of rice and the potatoes enjoying a hot tub are bound to raise a smile and could prove useful for parents wishing to encourage an awareness of cooking in their children. As Carol Timperley says in her introduction: An appreciation of good food is one of the greatest of all gifts you can give your child.
Fully endorsed by the Vegetarian Society and approves by consultant nutritionist Jane Brophy, this book will be an inspiration to busy parents. --Dale Evans
A comprehensive guide to vegetarian food for children from weaning through to nursery age.

The recipies are easy to follow and have a happy/sad face next to them so you can mark if baby likes them it not.
I would recommed trying the baby museli and chocolate pudding recpies as baby loves these.
On the downside some of the portion sizes are a large, partculalry if you make a dish and baby does not like it.
Overall a good book to dip into for inspiration for baby and toddler meals.
The section on nutrition is very basic- these foods contain this nutrient. But nothing on how much is needed and how much you would get from a certain food.
The recipes themselves are really dreary and old fashioned- they remind me of the food I was eating as a new vegetarian 20 years ago. There's very little foreign food- despite one of the authors having an Indian husband there're only 2 Indian recipes.
The main source of protein is cheese, there are a handful of recipes using tinned beans and lentils, but a huge range of vegetarian protein sources (tofu, tempeh, seitan, quorn, more unusual pulses..) are left completely untouched.
There also seem to be an unnecessary number of sweet recipes, if I wanted to feed my child sugar I could find sweet recipes in any non-vegetarian kids cookbook.
We have all enjoyed the Lentil Hotpot, Barley pot but our all time favorite is the Spinach and Mushroom Lasagna - utterly sublime!
I tend to "adapt" recipes to ingredients that I have but I would recommend following her recipes at least once as the combinations are amazingly tasty.
Never mind the weaning or feeding children aspect - this is the best cookbook I have ever bought EVER!

I found this too fussy - long recipes which take a lot of time. Flavours such as garlic and spices not good for sensitive tummies. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Plato's Symposium

Love this book, excellent recipes. So far nothing has been refused by babies. Love the way it's broken down into age range and the detail about texture etc. Very happy xxxxxPublished on 16 Oct. 2014 by Mummy of two
Great recipe ideas, but the author seems to think that every baby is as open to new tastes as her own, and her anecdotes about her own experiences can be wearing.Published on 29 Sept. 2014 by Lisa9898
This is a nice book but seemed a little out of date. It refers to egg white being indigestible by babies but then gives recipes that use the whole egg. Read morePublished on 19 Sept. 2014 by Bess_Wheat
