?Babies are built from food,? writes Greene (Raising Baby Green) in this straightforward manual for eco-conscious parents. Most of the nutritional advice here will not be new to parents; it?s not specific to parents who are choosing organic or sustainable food. The strength of the book is in its personality. Greene shares his own childhood eating habits and takes a nonjudgmental approach, offering specific brand suggestions for organic baby formulas knowing that some mothers need that option. Parents of picky eaters will especially appreciate the tips for engaging toddlers in new flavors and aromas. Verdict This title will stand out among the proliferation of organic cookbooks for babies and toddlers, as it capably tackles the why (we feed our kids healthy food) and how (to get them to eat it). ?Library Journal Xpress Review(Oct 2010)
