    If you want to help your baby develop the best possible physical vehicle for his or her future, a balanced diet of real foods is the way to go. So say Jeannette L. Bessinger and Tracee Yablon-Brenner in Best Food for Your Baby & Toddler, and they should know - just take a look at their credentials. And they say it well. This book is heavy laden with information on baby nutrition, from birth and breast feeding to age three and finicky eaters. Then, for good measure, they throw in some tips for helping guide children in eating well as they move forward in life. Baby's first year is divided into four age groups and guidelines on best feeding practices for each age are given, including storing breast milk, when to start solid foods, best foods for each age range, and allergy prevention and treatment. Advice for toddlers from age twelve to eighteen months includes coping with food preferences, key nutrients, portion guides and feeding a sick toddler. In the section on feeding children from eighteen months to three years, tips on dealing with fussy are provided, as well as ideas on portion control, external cues about what and when to eat, and best ways to cope with meals away from home. The authors point out that these months are our chance to set the stage for a lifetime of healthy eating. And then there's more! There's a great chapter on safe food preparation and kitchen organization and lots of great recipes for the different age ranges, some so good they make me hungry. Bon Appetite, babies!

    This book truly covers it all - from food safety in general, to environmental concerns (detailed coverage of pesticides/plastics, etc), preparing for your baby and breastfeeding, to tons of recipes which are orgazined very well by age and food group. In fact it is a great cookbook, and 'healthy-eating-book', even if you didn't have any kids! It also includes setting up a pantry, and your kitchen as a whole, and the most detailed shopping and produce advice I have ever found in any book. This is coupled with detailed nutritional information - in a way that puts everything right where you need it, without flipping back and forth. The nutritional value of each fruit, etc is given in detail and discussed, and the recipes give you a full nutriton-label-like break down as well. I have looked at a lot of 'cooking for babies and toddlers' books as well as cookbooks in general, and I could not be any happier with this one! It trumps them all in information!
