Cute little drawings all over, easy to read. No nutritional info for each recipe. The recipes are organized by age of the baby. For instance, one chapter is called "First Flavors: 4-6 months" and another is called "Texture and Taste: 6-9 months."
The basic baby purees are pretty much vegan. Once you get into the recipes at 6 mos and over, there is a lot of egg, milk or dairy and will require adapting for a vegan family. Some of the adaptions are simple -- just using rice or soy milk instead of cow milk, others will require more experience with vegan cookery to make it come out right like in the baked goods.
I wonder about some of the selections because they use strong tasting ingredients like cabbage, curries, etc. An adult might enjoy them but I wonder how agreeable it would be for a baby? There is an effort though to keep the tone of the recipes simple and appealing to the average person.
The little smiley and unhappy faces with the boxes under each recipe is useful to check off how baby reacted to the food for future reference. Not a whole lot of margin space to write adaption or more comments though. Because a babies tastes change over time, I would have liked more space to note when I tried it again how baby reacted. Maybe several lines of happy and unhappy faces with a space to add the date?
Overall, it's a cute collection, and looks fun, but while I appreciate the effort to put together something that babies could deal with and create meals for adults that "pull out baby portions" easily for a toddler, I would have found it more useful if it had these things:
Notations for nutritional info per recipe.
If the recipe was vegan, ovo-, lacto- or lacto- ovo- with some kind of symbol
If the recipe freezes well with some kind of symbol
Space in back to write down allergies, etc.
More margin space to write down comments

If you love to cook, this book is for you! Adorably illustrated and laid out in an easy-to-read format, it makes a nice addition to your cookbook collection. It was written with babies and toddlers in mind, and all the recipes were tested on the author's own son. It is a bit short on quick, throw-together recipes once you get past the baby food section, though, so if you're short on time, this may not be the resource for you. There are some really good recipes that your child will love if you have the time to spend in the kitchen. Vegans, note that many of them require eggs and/or dairy.

This is a wonderful collection of vegetarian recipes for babies and children, in a clear and easy to use format for busy parents! Mostly recipes, with a wonderful section explaining how to prepare single food items. There is some solid information and advice about feeding, very brief and to-the-point. I would highly recommend this book to anyone feeding a baby, vegetarian or not.

When my family and I became vegan, I needed some help with recipes for children. I found very few specifically vegan resources, and hoped that this book might have some vegan recipes.
It doesn't, and since it doesn't claim to be vegan that isn't a problem.
The problem, for me, is that the ingredients butter, cream, whole milk, and cheese are all throughout the book, most recipes containing more than one of those ingredients. I really can't imagine a baby or toddler being healthy eating SO MUCH saturated fat and cholesterol. Yes, their dietary needs are somewhat different from adults, but not so very different.
I was not able to try the recipes, but I rather think it should be a recipe book celebrating dairy and eggs. If you want to feed your kids lots of full-fat dairy and egg products, this is the book for you whether you are vegetarian or not.
If you want low-fat, whole-grain, vegetable-containing foods children will eat, skip this book altogether.
