Designed to address the many aspects of women's health over a lifetime, this series of books by Dr. Miriam Stoppard is uniquely accessible and affordable. Small, fully illustrated guides meet women's individual needs at every lifestage--from teenagers curious about their changing bodies to new mothers looking for advice and reassurance to women of all ages experiencing menopause. Fully illustrated, straight-forward, and practical, these are the ideal healthcare guides for every woman. Children's appetites are notoriously fickle; they're easily distracted from their food and they may have a fad for certain foods for days on end. But you can still give your child all the nutrients she needs by providing variety over a weekly period, rather than worrying about making every 24-hour period nutritionally complete. First Foods is separated in two sections: the first part tells you all about weaning your baby and feeding an older baby and toddler, with helpful food preparation dos and don'ts. It also covers information on family and social eating, practical nutrition guidelines, and help with feeding problems, including food intolerance and allergies. Separate charts suggest when to introduce different foods to your child and give advice on preparing and serving fresh fruits and vegetables. The second part of the book is full of creative ideas for feeding children from nine months old. All the meals are based on finger foods. They're nutritionally balanced and generally made with foods that you'd use and prepare for the rest of the family. More than 60 recipes are included and illustrated in full color.
