3.0 out of 5 stars Good variety, but no photos, March 17, 2011

This review is from: The Baby-Led Weaning Cookbook: 130 Easy, Nutritious Recipes That Will Help Your Baby Learn to Eat (and Love!) a Variety of Solid Foods - and That the Whole Family Will Enjoy (Hardcover)
The first 5 chapters of this book is a summary of the first book Baby Led Weaning. It also includes cute photos of babies eating various foods with their hands. There is a very useful table that goes by age and skill level and describes what foods are appropriate, such as large sticks at 6 months when they are just learning to aim food towards their mouth, then moving on to peas at at 8 months when they have a refined pincer grip.
The recipes offer a lot of variety but no photos, which is why I took away 1 star. Since the authors are from England, I was not familiar with some of the foods, so it would be nice to see the presentation of Bubble & Squeak, a dish made with mashed potatoes and cabbage or Toad in the Hole, a popover stuffed with sausages. There is a good mix of classic recipes like chicken nuggets, potato salad, beef stew, and broiled fish to curries like green thai curry chicken and saag paneer (sauteed spinach with cheese/tofu) to moroccan lamb tagine (stew with tomatoes, apricots, & raisins) and risottos and pastas.
I took away another star because the recipes do not have a time estimate of how long it will take for prep and cooking. The measurements are in US cups/oz/tsp/etc. and most of the ingredients are easy to find at the local grocery.
Overall, it's a good guide for how to start Baby Led Weaning with recipes that the rest of the family will like to eat.
