Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“As the obesity epidemic spreads across the world and parents become more concerned than ever with what to put in their children’s mouths, The Best Homemade Baby Food on the Planet takes a lot of the guesswork and frustration out of this important parenting task. It is a must-have for parents and grandparents alike.”

-Victoria McEvoy, M.D., Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School and Medical Director and

Chief of Pediatrics at Massachusetts General West Medical Group

“Tina Ruggiero and Karin Knight have compiled an amazingly beautiful cookbook that shows you how easy it is to make healthy and attractive food for even the pickiest of little ones. The Best Homemade Baby Food on the Planet guides you through the first foods to finger foods and beyond with style and ease.”

-Robin Elise Weiss, L.C.C.E., C.L.C., mother of eight and author of

The Complete Illustrated Pregnancy Companion and The Better Way to Breastfeed

“This well-written and highly attractive book surpasses the traditional expert advice on the nutritional content and preparation of healthy foods by invoking a developmental approach to infant nutrition. The reader will not only learn how simple it is to make their baby's meals at home, but also understand the developmental and physiological rationales for healthy food choices. This is anticipatory guidance on infant nutrition at its best!”

-Paul H. Dworkin, M.D., Professor and Chair of Pediatrics at the

University of Connecticut School of Medicine and

Physician-in-Chief of the Connecticut Children's Medical Center

“Making your own delicious and nutritious baby food could not be easier as this lovely book explains. I can’t think of a better or more enjoyable way to start a baby on a lifetime of happy and healthy eating exploration than to mash and puree your way through every one of these recipes. You will want to eat these foods too!”

-Marion Nestle, Ph.D., Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies,

and Public Health at New York University, and author of What to Eat

Library Journal
Registered nurse Knight (The Baby Cookbook) and nutritionist Ruggiero combine their perspectives on homemade baby food and provide more than 200 recipes. They include a month-by-month guide for introducing foods, detailed nutritional descriptions, and "helpful hints for the high chair." While filled with recipes, the book is marred a bit by cutesy recipe names like Yummy in My Tummy Banana-Yogurt Puddin' and Crib-Rockin' Lentil Roast. Fortunately, most of the recipes can be made in less than ten minutes and can be frozen.Verdict This title is similar to Renée Elliott's Healthy Eating for Your Baby & Toddler (reviewed above) in content and price, but if you can only choose one, Elliott's presentation is preferable. Still, Knight and Ruggiero's good recipe resource will make readers feel as if an RN and a nutritionist are by their side with guidance.—Barb Kundanis, Longmont P.L., CO

    Love it!

    Love this book! I got this book to make baby food with the Magic baby bullet blender. It was just what I was looking for. I didn't have time with three boys to read all the fun stuff at the beginning of the book, but the recipes are simple, quick and so tasty! I especially love the fact that they give you microwave cooking directions, makes making food so easy. Buy this book if you plan on making food for your baby, you won't regret it!

    Very helpful

    My husband and I wanted to make our baby's food and this book has been very helpful! We have just started making the food, but so far she's enjoyed the food and it was easy for a non-cook like me to use. Plus the book gives lots of valid information that was useful. I bought the book in hardcopy, but its very bulky; and I wish it was spirl bound so I wouldn't keep losing my place!
