Editorial Reviews

Review

?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)

This book provides a very large amount of information.

I can say with all honesty that Dr. Alan Green takes a very common-sense approach to feeding your baby (and YOU!)

I was fed a very limited variety of foods as a child, and as a result I've always been very picky.

This book has everything! If you're like me and a picky eater, you've probably wondered how to get your kids to eat things you don't eat. I was fed a very limited variety of foods as a child, and as a result I've always been very picky. This book explains why me and countless other Americans prefer the taste of packaged, processed foods loaded with salt and sugar, over fresh, wholesome, good food. So what did people do before the bland, jarred baby food of the industrial revolution hit store shelves? Read this book to find out!

What is included:

The definition of "baby" food
How to eat while pregnant to maximize the chances of your baby being an adventurous eater later on
How to introduce foods in a way your baby will find intriguing
Recipes
How we inadvertently teach our toddlers to become picky eaters
Facts about what's actually in baby food
How jarred baby food came to be in the first place
How to approach eating as "fun" and create enjoyable food experiences

You not only become educated on what to feed your baby, you become educated on the entire process of how consumers came to depend on Gerber and other baby food companies as the only way to feed a baby. I was always told that it wasn't safe to introduce too many varieties of fruits and veggies to a baby at once, but this book dispels that myth and so many others.

Skip What To Eat While You're Expecting and just read this.

this is one of my favorite baby feeding books! forget the bland, jarred purees with BPA leaching caps, the constipating cereals, and the different "stages" that commercial baby food manufacturers try to sell us. dr. greene shows us why it is so much better to make our own baby foods, and how easy it can be! dr. greene (like dr. sears) also recommends the using a "Treasure Tray," a fun tray filled with healthy finger foods for baby (or toddler or even older) and letting him/her explore different foods, tastes and textures. we also always let our baby nibble off of our plates, and did what is called 'child led introduction to solids' and she loved it! today, at 3 1/2, she eats any and everything i put in front of her-- including kale and broccoli.

I will have to agree with another reviewer who says this book is good for beginners. For those who have a fairly decent knowledge of nutrition and healthier alternatives and those who did their research while pregnant, on the other hand, this book may simply be more of the same.
While I enjoyed what the book had to say regarding the "magical" properties of herbs etc, my largest complaint would be the lack of recipes throughout the book. There are some, and while the text does not call itself a cookbook, I believe more recipes, with a background on why they are the best choice for your child, would have been more suited to my own personal needs. A lot of the information is what you would find in any pregnancy guide, magazine or website.
If you have already had children or are one who is extremely health conscious, you are not likely to find a host of profound information in this book that you have not come across previously. That being said, it is certainly a viable guide for those who want to change their nutritional lifestyles for themselves, their kids and their environment (if they have not already done so).

I ordered this book because I really enjoyed reading Raising Baby Green. Feeding Baby Green actually covers a lot of the same information covered in Raising Baby Green, but goes into a bit more detail. I pretty much skipped the whole first section on what to eat during pregnancy, since Raising Baby Green already covered the topic.

Overall, the book is practical and useful. I especially liked that Dr. Greene covered formula/bottle feeding. I had not expected to need that section, but after having had serious problems while breastfeeding my son, I was thankful that he gave suggestions for keeping bottle feeding as "green" as possible. However, I think he also covered that topic in Raising Baby Green, as well.

In short, I did like this book, and I found it to be helpful. If I had to do it over again, though, I would check out Feeding Baby Green from the library and buy Raising Baby Green, instead of the other way around.

This book kind of blew my mind. I am already a proponent and (mostly) practicer of "green" eating, but Dr. Alan Greene (haha) convinced me that eating whole and organic foods will become even more of a priority when (if) I become pregnant.

"Feeding Baby Green" walks through the various stages of pregnancy and the first few years of a child's life, laying out both a comprehensive eating strategy and examining in depth specific strategies to employ at each stage. The central message is that children will become adults who seek out the foods they ate both in utero and as infants, so parents should actively think about and feed their children the foods they want them to wind up eating as adults. Greene makes it sound like common sense, and in some ways it is, but he also backs it up with very compelling science.

Did you know that babies in utero drink amniotic fluid, and that it conveys the flavors of the foods the mother has eaten? Or that there have been studies that show that animals will seek out the foods their mothers ate while pregnant, even if separated from their mothers after birth, and so lacking the social cues that might direct them to those foods? Even if those foods are not things the animal would be expected to seek out? Wow!

There's also a significant amount of science surrounding the benefits of eating whole and organic foods in preventing allergies, eczema, asthma, and more. And about the negative behavioral effects food dyes have on children -- so negative that many European nations have banned the dyes we (and our kids) eat regularly!

Although Greene says you can begin these strategies at any time in infancy or toddlerhood, he also repeats over and over that it'll be easier the earlier you start.
