Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I admit that I am a former (mostly-reformed!) picky eater, and have always worried about how I would encourage my own children to be confident, adventurous, nutritional eaters. One flip through this (beautiful) book, and I am relieved to know that it can be done, simply.

The book is broken down by age/stage (4-6 months, 7-8 months, 9-11 months, and 12-18 months). Each recipe is laid out on a single page (sometimes with an accompanying picture on the opposite page) with simple icons for cooking time (including whether the time is mostly "hands off"), freezer-safe status, and recipe yield. As someone who regularly "makes extra" and freezes meals, I appreciate that every recipe includes a note as to how long these recipes can be refrigerated or frozen.

This book has sane, simple advice on feeding little ones, and this makes it so accessible. There are so fancy additives or ingredients (generally just things I buy anyway), so you don't have to hunt for anything to complete a recipe. Most of all, I didn't feel overwhelmed as I read it; well done by the editors of Parenting.

I especially enjoy that the recipes aren't limited to traditional kid fare, instead including salmon patties, bolognase, and french toast bites (all in the 9-11 month section), and fritatas, red beans & rice, and corn & red potato chowder (in the 12-18 month section).

I will be buying copies of this book to include with baby shower gifts!

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Thankfully, my little angel pretty much eats any and everything we put in front of her. I'm always in the kitchen, and I don't cater towards young taste buds, so her adapting to the food I serve has been truly a miracle. Not all children are like that, and with baby number two on the way, I saw this as an opportunity to test the waters a bit with my cooking. So, when I saw that a cookbook directed at foods for your little one was offered on this month's Vine list, I jumped right on it.

You never know, this new baby may hate everything I know and love (food-wise).

The first thing I noticed about this book is how pretty it is. I don't usually indulge in a lot of cookbooks. I'm more of a freelance cooker (ha) in that I don't like to follow a recipe. So, I own a few cookbooks, more for inspiration than anything else, and I only by them if they have pictures (which tend to inspire me more than the recipe itself). This book has lots of them, and they are all appetizing, colorful and vibrant. They make you want to cook their food, and that is VERY important.

As they always say, you eat with your eyes first.

I loved the thoughtful forward and all the little tidbits of info and suggestions littered throughout the book. It's a fun and playful book, embodying the spirit of its inspiration; children.

The book is easy to read and easy to follow. This isn't one of those recipe books that is going to sit on the shelf and collect dust due to the fact that you can't figure something out or can never find ingredients. A lot of these recipes could be made from the stuff sitting in your pantry.

Oh yeah, and the food is pretty delicious.

I've only tested out a few of these, but we all seem to really enjoy what's here.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I love the pictures and format of this cookbook. It is easy to navigate and has lots of good "side" info (e.g., the mercury levels in various types of fish or how to introduce herbs, etc.). Most importantly, there are also really creative recipes that pair ingredients I probably would have never combined on my own (e.g., Creamy Pear with Spinach). My baby is only just about to turn 4 months old, so I have not really explored the later recipes, but I like the purees I have tested so far. Highly recommended!

Format: Paperback
I love this book. I am NOT a cook. I am a first time mom of an 8 month old son who doesn't eat so great herself (hardly touched a vegetable before adulthood) and who is determined that my son will eat better than I did as a child (and hopefully as an adult as well!) There are a lot of criticisms of baby food cookbooks that only a moron needs a recipe book to tell them to shred up some carrots and steam them. Well, for someone who has never used a vegetable steamer before, it's not quite so obvious! This book starts with the basics, the very basics, and assumes you basically know nothing about cooking nutritious food which was very true for me. With this book, I have bought and cooked nutritious foods for my son that I never knew how to cook for myself. I had never in my life bought raspberries, prunes, asparagus, blueberries, cherries, sweet potatoes, green beans, white beans, zucchini, etc--now I buy them all the time and my son gobbles them up! This book combined with Cooking Light's First Foods have made me a true baby chef. I make about 90% of my son's food. FYI--I am a more than full time working mom (I am a physician in residency working upwards of 70 hours a week) and still find time to do this. These recipes, at least the 4-8 month and 8-12 month section, are very doable. They seem to get a bit more complex after this, so we'll see how things go!
