Joachim and Christine Splichal invite us into their home as they raise their twin boys, giving us a taste of good food in a family setting. I like their emphasis on easy preparation, and simple ingredients, presented in an age-appropriate progression. Each chapter helps focus on different stages in a baby's eating development, from the first solid foods on. Although tips are scattered throughout the book, I wish there was a chart in an appendix that outlines suggestions for which foods to start at which age.
I agree with Joachim and Christine that children should enjoy meals with their parents, eating age-appropriate versions of what is prepared for the whole family. I have fixed the Splichals' meals for my husband and myself, eagerly anticipating sharing them with our daughter (now 6-months old).
The bibliography of recommended readings is especially helpful to learn more about healthy nutrition for babies -- and their families, too!

Our goal was to raise our daughter to be a willing and adventurous eater, and to steer her clear of the usual all-American pitfalls of corn syrup, sugars, salts, etc that come with jarred baby food and formula (she never had any of that...perhaps a spoonful of rice cereal before we tossed it all out). This cookbook is very much about raising children in a foodie family, where the adults aren't eating processed foods, and are more likely to be getting fresh and rare items for the kitchen. The recipes themselves are almost immaterial - I think the real asset in this book is how beautifully it promotes a very European ethic in feeding your children properly, not bringing up picky eaters and spending too much money on "for kids" branded foods loaded with yech. The proof of its value to me (we got it as a gift) is that my daughter loved the dishes we prepared for her, without fail, and now, at 3 and a half, we get shocked looks from friends when we bring her to restaurants and others' houses for meals and she is happy to eat what the grown-ups are eating. LOVE IT!

why didn't i think to make such good food for my daughter BEFORE i read this book?! she is 9 mos. and every recipe i've tried from this book has been a hit with her and me and my husband. we can all sit down together for an enjoyable meal. what a treat!

to those who may find the ingredients elusive or expensive, simply substitute what you do have in season or available. modify the recipes as you need to, just remember, your baby wants to eat what you eat, and you will find these recipes DELICIOUS and easy.

Enjoying the book very much after receiving it as a present from my mother-in-law. My soon to be 11-month-old loves the recipes for carrots, broccoli, spinach... and I like the recipes, too-- so we share some of her veggies and add some of mom and dad's salmon or chicken, and everyone's at the table and happy. I'm also amazed at how much less expensive it is to prepare organic, healthy baby food.
