The Baby Cookbook, Revised Edition: Tasty And Nutritious Meals For The Whole Family That Babies And Toddlers Will Also Love Paperback – August 18, 1992
From Library Journal
This revised edition (Morrow, 1985) includes a discussion of nutrition and nutrient requirements, and provides information on feeding children, nursing, introducing solids, childhood obesity, and food allergies. It also contains Knight's personal journal of her daughter's food experiences during infancy and toddlerhood. Knight, who is a registered pediatric nurse, states in the preface that her aim is to "provide a complete feeding guide in the context of family life." The second part of the book contains 200 healthy "family recipes," which a baby of 12 months or older can share with family members. The recipes are low in sodium, contain almost no sugar, and emphasize complex carbohydrates. Microwave cookery is included as are menus. More of a cookbook than Louise Lambert-Lagace's equally useful Feeding Your Baby: From Conception to Two Years ( LJ 9/1/91), Knight's book is recommended for public libraries.

First, I LOVE the sample menu section. It has encouraged me to give my daughter a much more varied diet! There are a lot of creative ideas in there!
The nutrition information covers all the basics without going into information overload.
There is also a food diary, describing what her daughter ate at what age. This is, in my opinion, the weakest section of the book.
By contrast, the Lair book recipes called for ingredients that you could only get at a natural foods store or macrobiotic grocery, and most of the recipes are really for ADULTS, not babies. There's just a little note at the bottom that says (for example) "reserve some of the beans and mash for a baby."
The Baby Cookbook uses food available at a regular store, and has recipes that can be served for baby and everyone else (after about age 9 months, when you're past the very plain food). As a stay-at-home mom, I like the snack recipes that make one adult and one child serving to share.
I wish the recipes specified what age to serve them to baby. Instead, you have to page back to the sample menus and the what-to-introduce-when charts to figure out if the recipe is right for your child's age.
