After purchasing Karmel's Top 100 Baby Purees, I plunged in for three Finger Foods- one for me (grandma) my daughter (9 mo old) and my daughter-in-law (6 month old). I think these recipes are great, and I will be more than happy to purchase greek-sytle yogurt (more protein, no fat) and leeks. A lot of the recipes- I do have the ingredients on hand. I plan to make a lot of these for my HUSBAND - started with the sweet potato parsnip crisps. My son in law made the tortilla pizzas the day they received the book. I love the side bar that states preparation time, cook time, servings, if "suitable for children under 1" and if "suitable for freezing". I want to make the mozzarella sticks after my next grocery trip. I'm happy!

I purchased this book when my baby was around a year old and I was trying to come up with new ideas to feed to her. To me Finger Foods suggested small children, but most of the recipes in this book are more for 4 years old and up. (I've actually cooked a lot of the recipes just for Mom and Dad.) So if you are looking for a family cookbook, this is a good one...but not so much for toddlers.

There were a lot of recipes, which was nice. I was looking for a book with simple and easy recipes and finger food ideas. The recipes included in this book were a bit intricate and had too many ingredients. They were not simple or quick in my opinion.

I have made a few recipes from this book and they have all turned out surprisingly good, plus my son enjoys them. However, a majority of the recipes do require a lot of time and ingredients to make, so it is not practical for every day use when you are a busy mom. I will maybe make something from this book once a month. Here is my general overview of the book

Pros:
- Tasty recipes - everything I have tried so far has turned out good. It is food I would eat and my son enjoys the food (however, to be honest, he is not a picky eater)
- Provides a lot of good ideas - I really like to use it as a guide on ideas of foods to make for my toddler now, more than a recipe book.
- Well organized - book is divided into sections based on type of food (fish, snacks, chicken, meat, sweet treats, etc)
- Corner of each page shows a basic overview of important info for the recipe (e.g., "suitable for children under the age of 1", "suitable for freezing", "suitable for reheating", etc)

Cons:
- A lot of time and ingredients required - many recipes have more than 5 ingredients, many seem to have 10 or more, so making food from the book does become time consuming
- Only a handful of ingredients are "suitable for children under the age of 1" - just an FYI if you are looking for recipes for your 9 month old.
- A lot of the recipes involve frying/pan frying/sauteing in oil - However, I have baked several of them rather than frying and the results have been good.

The editor has no shame permitting the cover to bear the word "healthy" as these recipies are mostly for fried foods. I found two that I will try - the rest are garbage (quite literally: they are make-at-home junk food recipes).

lots of fried stuff in the recipes. although the title says "finger foods," I was hoping there would be more non-fried options.

At one year old, my son wants to feed himself. I needed healthy options for finger foods. I also wanted recipes that offer a variety of flavors. This is perfect!

There are some good recipes in here, but when it comes down to it, it wasn't the type of book I was looking for. Like another reviewer said, the recipes are often intricate and unrealistic for a working mom with young kids. It didn't seem worth the cost of returning, but I haven't used it once, so now I wish I had sent it back. I'm accomplished in the kitchen so it's not a question of the recipes being "above" a beginner. I simply don't have the time it takes!

I purchased this book hoping to get some good ideas for finger foods for my son. I ended up returing the book. I felt that it did not have a good variety of recipe ideas. A lot of the recipes were fatty or seemingly unhealthy. It was disappointing because I absolutely loved the Top 100 Baby Purees book by the same author.

I previewed this book at my local library and decided to purchase for some toddler meal ideas. My only complaint is that it is written by an author in England and we do not have all of the same products in the U.S. as those in England, so there are a few recipes that I cannot make. The book is full of healthy recipe ideas, but it is not what I expected. I am a little disappointed.
