This is such a welcoming book! The focus on mom's nutrition as well as the baby's is wonderful, and the gentle way that Kelly and Katherine empower parents to help their children (and themselves, too) is incredibly encouraging, even to people like me who don't have kids. Just like any parent, I don't want to see children suffer from health problems, especially chronic ones that can be avoided with a little bit of learning and diligence. A book like this is exactly what parents and prospective parents and anyone who cares about children's health needs to have and read regularly. I really do think that the title should be "Super Nutrition for Everybody," because adults have the same needs, too, in terms of making sure we optimize our nutrition and understand how our bodies work. Can we make this required reading in all high school health classes?? "Super Nutrition for Babies" is inspiring, it's friendly, it's approachable, and most importantly, it's comforting. Even though there is a lot of information here to be digested, the overall positive tone and the reinforcement of how important mom-baby nurturing is makes all of the info supportive rather than overwhelming. Great blend of recipes + info, too. I am quite looking fwd to making the sweet potato & coconut crackers for myself. And ooh, the homemade ginger ale! I've always wondered how to make that. As a food coach and professional recipe developer, I read a LOT of books about food and wellness researched and written by a variety of authors. Kelly and Katherine's book is one of the best I have ever read on how nutrition relates to everyday and long-term health. Do yourself a favor and get reading! You'll be enjoying tasty and wellness-enhancing meals for you and your baby in no time.

A wealth of nutrition information for infants dietary needs, but some of the ideas are very left field. Take what you will from it, your child will still benefit from a lot of the products the author presents.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
