Format: Hardcover-spiral
This is a book I wish I had when my children were babies. The information is just what parents need as they navigate through the development of their baby's eating habits.

The book has a chart outlining when to introduce foods, and addresses food allergies and how to avoid them, as well as distinguishing the difference between a real food allergy and a food intolerance. Advice is given concerning organic vs. non-organic, frozen vs. fresh, suggested processing tools such as food mills, what foods should never be given to a baby under 12 months old and why, and so much more I also liked the "at our house" segments throughout the book - real life stories from parents about how they handled food issues with their children.

With over 100 recipes from first food purees to foods toddlers and young children will enjoy, this book is a valuable source of information. It is spiral bound which is always a plus for a cookbook, and has lots of great color photos, including some of the most adorable babies.

This book will be my gift of choice for anyone I know who is having their first child.

I was given a copy of this book to review by the publisher but the opinion is my own and was not solicited. If I didn't like it, I would say so.

I was delighted with the quality receipes in this book but what I found most helpful was all the additional information highlighted in the book. They covered topics such as; what and how much they should be eating, and at what age, storing baby food, etc. They addressed a daunting topic like making your own baby food and made it easy.

The first half is telling you to steam, boil, or bake a veg or fruit the purée. Wasted space. The wholesome baby food website is much better and free.

I really like this cookbook because it doesn't assume you have one type of baby food maker. I also like how it has age-appropriate recipes throughout the toddler years! I really don't think you need any other cookbook for baby food if you get it because you can pretty much use these recipes with many different things (ex: it also gives you hints to use avocado when you go out because it's easy to mash up).

What an excellent book on how to begin your baby's journey into eating solid foods as healthy as possible. Lots of great recipes that are, as they say, "Kitchen Tested and Baby Approved". They really are scrumptious! I highly recommend.

We've consulted numerous books as we move our 12 month old to solid foods. This book is the one we continuously turn back to. It's well written and includes many great ideas and recopies.

The title of this book intrigued me so I bought it for my daughter and her 7-month-old baby. But, I had to thumb through it before giving it to them and I found it very informative and the recipes extremely easy. This book is a great way to get your baby on a path to good, healthy eating.
