More About the Author
Now that my son has grown up, my focus has turned from nutrition to massage, and I have been working as a licensed massage therapist in a physical therapy office for the last 15 years. It is terrific job and I hope I'll still be at it when I'm 90. My latest project is working on a booklet about "birder's neck" - that painful side-effect that birders get when they look up into the trees for too long.
I am grateful that Vegetarian Baby (updated version with Christine Beard) is still available and suspect that new parents are enjoying the pro-vegetarian culture that exists today where this book is one of many on the subject. I raise my glass (a home-made Nutribullet drink) to Families and Children everywhere!

We becams vegetarian (nearly vegan) over the last year or so, and that's why I decided to read this book: even though my daughter is no longer a baby (she's 2 and half), I wanted to start from scratch with the info on vegetarian nutrition for children.
This book offers a wealth of information on macro- and micro-nutrients and on all staple foods for a vegetarian/vegan baby. There's plenty of info on grains, vegetables, beans and nuts, fruits, and all vitamin and minerals necessary for a baby to thrive. I found the info on grains particularly interesting, as it went into grains I have never heard of or was not very familiar with and showed the ideal sequence to introduce the various grains, from the lightest and gluten free to the more common, glutinous corn and wheat.
Because even in omnivorous families, meat is one of the last items introduced to a baby, I think this is a great resource for any parent, vegetarian or not, as fruits, vegetables and grains are usually introduced first in any case, and this book will explain you how and when it's best to introduce each of those foods, also taking into consideration the prevention or spotting of possible allergies or intolerances.
The book also offers ideas for menus for your baby, and at the end there is a useful FAQ section.
A great book, which I am planning to buy as a gift the next time a friend is pregnant.
This book is Yntema's book, rewritten by Beard-- and I like Yntema's narration much more than I do Beard's. While it's very nice to have more recent nutrition facts at my fingertips, I don't enjoy the way they are presented in a staunchly pro-vegan monologue. While I think it's very important for vegan parents to have this support for raising their babies, I find that I miss the support I received reading about Yntema's own journey raising a healthy vegetarian child.
I will keep the copy that I have of this book, to turn to when I have a question about nutrition. But I will be buying a copy of the original version, to turn to when I need reminding that raising a happy and healthy child on a vegetarian diet is easier than all of the RDAs, DRIs, ESADDIs, and EMRs out there make it seem.
