Realizing that healthy eating involves eating as a family, Tyler Florence has filled this book with recipes that work for everyone in the house. Last night I made Roast Turkey with Herbed Vegetables (page 72). Not only was it easy to make, but it was delicious! Roasting is a nice way to make a flavorful meal without a lot of work. I can throw it all together, pop it in the oven and then play with the baby, or give him a bath while it cooks. The food that I portioned out for the baby and pulsed in the food processor was the perfect consistency for him. The leftovers have kept well and he had "seconds" warmed up today for lunch. He liked the flavors, as much as he does the Sprout baby food pouch meals.

I felt really good about serving my whole family the same meal. This book makes it easy to have a family meal that is healthy, appealing and delicious for everyone at the table. The ingredients are easy to find in the average grocery store provided they are in season, this means a lot to me as I do not want to plan a meal and then have a hard time finding everything I need to make it. The flavors are powerful without overwhelming the sensitive palate of a baby or a toddler, while at the same time pleasing the adults at the table.

This book will see a lot of use in my household. I highly recommend!

As a dietitian and mom (and diabetes cookbook author),I absolutely love this cookbook geared for babies, children and families. It's not your typical "baby food" cookbook that tells you to puree carrots and serve. He not only includes realistic family meals, but he combines unthinkable foods that taste delicious (and are healthy). He roasts a lot of fruit and veggies for maximum flavor and you can tell he is a dad that knows how to get his kids to eat good food. My 6 month old and 2 year old both ate a spinach and banana smoothie this morning (2 year old asked for more). I was always a fan of Tyler Florence, but I've never bought one of his cookbooks. I highly recommend this book! Lara Rondinelli-Hamilton

I love Tyler's Ultimate. He is definitely my favorite Food Network chef to watch in action. His passion for food and life shines through on screen. Even though he has several books out, I had not been interested in purchasing them. I guess I thought some of his magic would be lost in print. That is until two weeks ago when I ordered Start Fresh on a whim. As soon as it arrived I fell in love and I have made something out of it every day since. EVERYday. The book is absolutely fabulous. If you are into making food for your baby/toddler - get this book! Get it even if you don't have kids...And if you don't want to buy it, borrow it from your local library. You won't be sorry, and you'll probably be back to order a copy of your own in the end.

Start Fresh is divided into three sections roughly based on age. The first contains purees, some of which can also be used as sauces for meat dishes for the grownups. We came to this book a little late for the first section. At a year old my daughter is pretty much over purees, and isn't a big fan of veggies either, though she will drink them from a cup smoothie-style. She had Tyler's banana, spinach, and yogurt puree this way and asked for more after already sucking down 5 ounces.

The second and third sections are where the fun begins. All of the recipes contain fresh fruits and veggies, which Tyler suggests you purchase organic and locally (a man after my own heart). Most of the recipes call for these various fruits and vegetables to be roasted in the oven, a technique I have to admit I had never bothered with before the book. It is so simple and does an excellent job of adding complex flavors to food that I can't believe I avoided it for so long.

The very best part is that the meals are meant to be enjoyed as a family!

Ok, so I have purchased several books on making your own food for baby, and I like all of them so far, however the difference in this book for me is that it contains meals you can make for everyone all at the same time. I have made quite a few recipes out of this book, and so far they are all great. The one pan lasagna is totally awesome and will be a recipe I will use for years. I have made several of the purees for my son and he loves them. Tyler uses a lot of roasting techniques whichs adds a whole new flavor that I didn't have when making purees by steaming. I've also made the butternut squash macaroni and cheese, which was a hit as well, and I felt healthy eating it!! This is really an awesome book and I'm glad that I purchased it. I almost bought it for my kindle, but decided I wanted the pictures, which are quite inspirational. Oh, and I promise that the recipes aren't hard or complicated at all, nor do they require strange ingredient. Trust me, I'm not a seasoned cook and love it when you can just throw things together.

Almost all pros:
-beautifully put together with gorgeous pictures
-nice prologue with an intro about why this book exists (those pages are previewed through Amazon); definitely inspires you to make your own baby food
-conquerable, DELICIOUS recipes that your child will eat (if it tastes good to you, it has a far better chance of tasting good to them as opposed to nasty jarred food)
-some real basics (i.e., single vegetable purees) and then easy-to-do advanced recipes (multi-ingredient)
-tells you equipment you need (three things - steamer, sheet pan, blender/food-processor) rather than demanding you buy a million things (as in Super Baby Food)

Cons:
-wish there were more recipes
-vegetarians should know there are several meat recipes (although there are also plenty of vegetarian ones)
