Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Vann founded Organix, her successful English organic children's food company, in 1991. Her cookbook offers 70 recipes for babies and children from four to seven months up through preschool age, along with lots of information on organic and natural foods, nutrition, and other health issues, in an appealing format that includes full-page color shots of the food and photographs of adorable, rosy-cheeked children. The recipes are easy and sometimes unusual, and though Vegetable and Coconut Korma or mashed Corn and Potato with herbs may be too adventurous for some children, others will love them. Sure to appeal to parents, this is recommended for all collections on cooking for children.

Even parents who don't serve their children exclusively organic food will find Organic Baby and Toddler Cookbook a terrific resource. (Kansas City Star)

I was excited to find an organic cookbook for babies and toddlers, hoping to find some new inspiration and/or healthful recipes for my 3 kids (all under the age of 4). I did glean a few new healthy ideas from this cookbook, but was really surprised about some of the things suggested to feed a 4 to 7 month old baby. For example, I can't wait to try the hummus recipe for my 4 year old and 22 month old. The recipe isn't that original in any way, it's more that I hadn't thought about making hummus in awhile. But, one of the first recipes suggested to make in the 4 ot 7 month old category is a rice cereal with raspberries and strawberries. For a baby that young?? Yet, off to the side there is a note saying something about needing to remove all seeds from fruits because babies at this age cannot process seeds comfortably since they are so young. I don't know many moms willing to pick the seeds off of strawberries. Most of the recipes for young babies contain multiple ingredients, including olive oil, oregano or other spices and I have always read/heard that you introduce one food at a time using the 4 day wait rule in case of allergies. Much of the same is found throughout this age category of recipes.

There is quite a bit of information about organic food and the pros of feeding it to your children, which is great, however overall I don't feel like the author has a really good feel for what kids should be eating at what age. And it seemed like there were so many recipes for an oatmeal or rice breakfast, all with very little variation.

So if you're looking for a book to go by age and appropriate ingredients, try Ruth Yaron's Super Baby Food. If you are looking for a book with a few recipes for your toddler or preschooler, this is an ok choice. The one thing that is very consistent is that the measurements for each recipe tell you how to make just a tiny amount needed to feed your little one.

I think every food book tells you something different on the subject of nutrition, and you can add this one to that list. I think it would be impossible for any author to keep current every piece of advice the 'experts' in America dish out. As a British author you can bet she didn't even consult them. Nor should she have. I find it interesting that many of the reviewers didn't even consider that fact in their reviews.

Don't expect to find recipes to make hamburgers, fries, chicken fingers, or fish sticks. Instead you'll find fish cakes, lamb, and the best meatballs I've ever tasted that incorporate chopped mushrooms into the mix. Day out cakes are great. Fruit bars are fantastic. Shreaded apple and orange breakfast is tasty. Expect to find ideas in here that are outside the box of typical American kid cusine. And why might that be? Because the author is a Brit. Yes, some of the recipes do require a little effort, but the results have been well worth it.

If you're looking for a book on how to make baby puree, you'll find a few ideas here but not a complete chapter. If you're looking for parenting advice or a breastfeeding advocate or recipes for the run-of-the-mill fare.. this isn't the book for you. And especially to those looking for a complete nutritional resourse for infants and children.. this isn't the book for you. I've never expected those things from a cookbook and neither should you.

Buy this book as a fantastic addition to the nutrition guides you already have on your shelf and ignore those pages of this book.

First off, this cookbook does contain some wonderful recipes for babies and toddlers which are easy and quick to prepare and are very nutritious. However, like other reviewers below, I too take exception to the poor advice given regarding breastfeeding and the nutritional importance of breastmilk. In the introduction the author writes, "I believe there is nothing more important than the quality of the food that we feed our children - their development, health, and happiness depend on it... always use organic ingredients... always use natural ingredients... keep sugar and processed ingredients out of your child's diet for as long as possible." One chapter is entitled, "As Nature Intended".A quote by the author on the back of the book states, "There should be no compromise in what we feed our children." But unfortunately she does not seem to apply any of these principles to what we feed them before they eat solid food. Rather than advising a mother returning to work to pump her breastmilk for her baby, she tells her to switch to formula! Now which is more "natural, organic, and unprocessed", fresh human milk or prepackaged formula? She further states in the first recipe section that "breast or formula milk is the only suitable food during the first four months. After this, your baby needs some solid food in her diet... By four to seven months of age milk alone no longer meets her body's demands for nutrition and energy as she grows." I don't know where she got this information, but it is complete nonsense. First, formula is NOT on a par with breastmilk in terms of "suitability". It is a poor substitute which should only be used by those unable to produce milk of their own. Second, a baby absolutely does not NEED other foods at four months of age, or even at seven.Read more ›
