Overview

Give your baby and toddler the best start in life and help them grow up healthy, happy, and strong with delicious, homemade foods. Packed with 90 easy-to-prepare recipes made with wholesome ingredients, The Baby & Toddler Cookbook—along with its companion volume, Baby and Toddler On the Go—offers a fresh and nutritious approach to feeding children from 6 months to 3 years.

Making fresh, homemade meals for your baby and toddler is one of the best ways to give him a healthy, happy start in life. And while every parent can appreciate the convenience of already-prepared foods, balancing them with wholesome meals you have prepared yourself not only provides better nutrition, but also teaches your baby good eating habits. Packed with over 90 recipes and loads of nutritional information, The Baby & Toddler Cookbook makes cooking healthy meals easy, even for busy parents. By setting aside only a few hours a week, you can make and store an array of nutritious foods to keep baby happy and fed. All along the way, this book will give you helpful hints, guidance, and plenty of recipes to ease your path to nutrition.

Each chapter begins with detailed information about the child's nutritional needs and how to address the needs at mealtime. Organized by age, the recipes follow, showing how to introduce different, appropriate foods at every development stage, from 6 months to 3 years. Each of baby’s stages is covered, from starting solid foods and introducing new ingredients and textures, to easing into toddlerhood with plenty of ideas for fun meals, snacks, and desserts. This book also includes tips for making foods ahead, using the freezer to maximum advantage, and making food fun for your toddler.

    A good cookbook it's worth the online price.

    I purchased this cookbook for my niece. I looked at some of the receipes. The receipes seemed easy to make. I hope my niece will enjoy the cookbook.I'm glad that I was able to order the book online.
