    Great Recipes

    This book is great for getting started with solids. The information is thorough but succinct. There is no fluff, which I liked as I don't have time to read endless unnecessary tips (who does?). The author also gives instructions on what goes with what so you can experiment once you get the basic idea. The recipes are absolutely delicious and easy to make. There are herbs, onion, even garlic, which I didn't know I could give my baby, but yes, I could and they make the food so tasty and flavorful. My daughter has loved everything I have cooked, she even likes her spinach. <BR/>Yes, there are some foods considered inappropriate for the given age here in US, so keep in mind that the author is British. So as with any cook book use your best judgment - you can easily modify recipes to your liking. My mom lives is in Europe so she assured me some of the foods I was afraid to cook(tomatoes for example) are considered safe there. <BR/><BR/>I would highly recommend the book to anyone looking for diverse, easy and delicious recipes for baby food.

    Great Recipes!

    First of all I want to say that I love the preface of this book! It reminds everybody why parents decide to make their own baby food – It is healthier and it tastes better! I remember the first time I decided to make my own baby food, my baby was about 3 months old and we went to a friend’s (their babies are four months older than Baby E) and they had me smell a jar of chicken puree; it smelled worse than dog food – there was no way I was ever going to feed that to my baby. Here is a book that helps me make my baby’s food better.

    This book is nice because it goes into detail for each recipe stating how to make it, what age it is best introduced, how many portions yielded, how long of cooking time, and if it is suitable for freezing. It also has more foods than just purees. I think this book complements The Healthy Baby Meal Planner by Annabel Karmel. It has some of the same names of recipes, but the recipes usually differ a bit.

    This book covers first foods (about 6 months) with recipes such as butternut squash (one of my baby’s favorites), apple and pear with cinnamon, no cook baby food – avocado, banana, and papaya; (2) after first tastes (6-7 months) with recipes such as see-in-the-dark puree, Cinderella’s pumpkin, potato carrot and corn, chicken with sweet potatoes and apple, apricot apple pear and vanilla; (3) second stage weaning (7 to 9 months) which features recipes like tomato cauliflower and carrot with basil, mini minestrone, and cauliflower and broccoli in cheese sauce; (4) and lastly growing independent (9 to 12 months) with recipes such as mashed potato and carrot with broccoli and cheese, pasta with hidden vegetables, creamy chicken and vegetables, and nectarine and strawberry with vanilla.

    Our family has enjoyed this book and I think it has helped us introduce more of a variety of foods for our baby. I am glad that he is learning to eat and enjoy foods that are healthy. Hopefully having such a variety will help him be less picky later in life!

    I Also Recommend:

    Excellent information and gorgeous pictures

    Easy to use directions and broken into age appropriate food combinations which are much easier to make than I thought. I'm very visual and the pictures are excellent.

    Fabulous!!!!

    This book was fabulous. Not only are the recipes easy and tasty, but the tips and suggestions provide good explanations of why you should cook/store/process food a certain way. My daughter has enjoyed only homemade food and my husband and I are enjoying making the food for her. I especially love experimenting again with different food combinations and learning which foods go well with each other and which ones don't - the ice cube method makes it easy to 'mix-n-match' flavors.

    A reviewer

    I had someone recommend this book to me as a reference to start making my own baby food. I found the information very helpful and just took a day and made a whole bunch of baby food and froze it in ice cube trays. It was very easy and she loves the baby food I made. Also, the amount of money I saved was phenomenal!!!
