I love this cookbook! The stages are easy to to follow and the recipes are delicious!! The pictures are beautiful and really inspire you to try the recipes. I have used this cookbook since my little one started eating solids and he now is eating everything. The toddler section is particularly helpful for me as I try to expand lunches and dinners beyond your typical peanut butter and jelly fare. Our favorites are the homemade cheesy noodles with broccoli and the veggie quesadilla with spinach and mushrooms. The food is so good, I make lunch/dinner for the whole family. And most of the recipes use 1 pot/pan for everything and are super quick and easy which is a must for a busy mom!

This book is not only beautiful but the recipes are simple and easy to use. The book has the perfect blend of information about preparing, storing, and serving baby food along with yummy looking recipes to please baby's palate. It really bothers me when people review baby food cookbooks and say it's too "simple" or too "obvious." First of all, part of the point of these baby food recipe books are to show you how 'simple' and easy it is to make your own baby food. Baby food purees are exactly what they sound like. Steamed fruits or vegetables that are blended into a puree to make it easy for baby to eat. You are not supposed to overwhelm your baby with multiple flavor combinations in one meal and it is always recommended that you start out simple with one pureed fruit or vegetable at a time. Once baby has gotten used to basic flavors he/she can then begin exploring new flavor combinations and more complex recipes which this book also includes after baby has reached about 8-9 months of age. I would recommend this book to other moms as a good jumping off point for homemade quality baby food.

I bought this book when I was expecting my first baby. I knew I wanted to make his baby food but didn't know where to even begin. This book was very helpful and informative in helping start the process of making his food. I realized very quickly on though that it was lacking a lot of very important information. I had to do additional research to "fill in the blanks". That being said, I have been happy with the recipes that are in here. I like that there aren't any additional uneccesary ingredients included in these easy recipes like butter, salt, oils or any type of "flavor enhancer". I wanted basic, healthy food so my baby would learn how to eat without any side effects or tummy troubles. This book accomplishes that. The extra information I was looking for was things like...how do I know my baby is ready for the next stage... how to cook additional ingredients that weren't part of a recipe... or if a fresh fruit isn't available could I use a frozen substitute or canned, or what foods to avoid until certain ages... and those issues aren't addressed in there. So as long as you're willing to do a little bit of extra research then this is an excellent book!

This is not a bad review - just informative. I purchased this book with the zeal of someone who was already steaming and pureeing veggies for baby food. BUT this was just an extra step too hard for our family. The recipes seem great but we have had it for months and have only attempted 2 or 3 because they just require too many ingredients. I was looking for some variety for the kiddo as he transitioned to 'real' food but we just couldn't live up to this cookbook.
Again - there is nothing wrong with the cookbook, food seems tasty and there isn't another book that would have worked better. I just wished I had realized I didn't have the time to follow through before I spent the money.

I bought this book as the first time I cooked in my life is when my daughter was 6 months old. I have prepared all her baby food when she was little, so when she transitioned to stage 2/3 food, I wanted to do the same. This book gave me ideas about how to combine vegetables andfruits with oats, quinoa, spices, etc. I have the Top 100 Baby purees book, but did not like it too much because it uses citrics and allergic ingredients to younger babies. This book uses theingredientes I want to use. IN addition, I can use it until the baby is 18 months old.

An excellent cookbook for those who want to cook wholesome food for their little ones. Especially love the breakdown of what foods (in what forms) are appropriate for what age groups.

While nutrition is important to me as a cook, I cannot make any claim in this review as a nutritionist or pediatrician. I cooked for my child without benefit of a book like this one. And I wish I had one then, but I find myself regularly in the position of needing to cook for those under three, without keeping any baby food or formula on hand. As a cook, this book has proven ideal in format, scope and approach.

Seeing what corporate control of the food supply has done to the rest of America, I have less than no faith in their claims to care about the most helpless of us. Neither do I have much faith in Agribusiness, especially seeing how food safety oversight has degenerated.

I am not trying to convert anyone to doing the cooking for young children all from scratch. And I do not fool myself into thinking that cooking from scratch will automatically address completely the above concerns. I just need to cook for kids upwards of six months. I want to do the best job possible without driving myself or anybody else nuts. My needs are completely met by using this book without all my old guess work and fussing.

Babies do not have a developed sense of smell and taste (they are combined for the cook). They will eat and drink poisons, such as chlorine, without batting an eye. My toddler daughter would tuck into fiery hot and sour soup at the local Beijing and Sichuan places to the astonishment, horror and amusement of their staff. I am not recommending that you feed your little ones chili, she just went for what was in reach. But they are amazingly resistant to food you think should be delicious to them. The answer cannot, must not be found in drenching everything in high fructose corn syrup, boxed cereals be damned.
