What Parents are Saying about Michele Olivier and Little Foodie:

”I've tried almost al the recipes and my 9-month-old loves them all. She never wants to leave her high chair. I've searched all over internet and yours is the best that I can find. I bought your cookbook and am cooking the and freezing like crazy. I am so proud that my daughter loves all the food and that I am able to make it for her.” —Mandy L.

“Just bought your cookbook and made this recipe first. I didn't know it was possible for my daughters mouth to open as wide as it did. Huge hit!! Your recipes are hands down the best and most creative I've found. Here's (hopefully) to little foodies in the making!” —Therese H.

“My baby went crazy over this (roasted banana + rosemary puree) this morning. So far he has been a very good eater, even eating all of his zucchini (which was the one I was most worried about), but he lovvveeeeed this puree. And I admit, after tasting a little when I was checking the temperature, I almost ate it myself…” —Ashely O.
