The Complete Idiot's Guide to Feeding your Baby and Toddler Paperback – November 1, 2005
Top Customer Reviews
The first part is geared toward starting infants under a year on solids and provides step-by-step instructions for parents just starting to make their own baby food or feed their infant from a jar. The rest of the book focuses mainly on toddlers who eat table foods. Along with important nutrition details about vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates and fats, I found the cooking tips included in the second half of the book to be most useful. The chapter called "Supermarket Savvy" shares great ideas to make store-bought/convenience foods healthier (such as adding apple juice and chopped raisins and celery to stuffing mix or mixing instant oatmeal into refrigerated cookie dough). The recipe section is better than most cookbooks I've seen for kids because it includes healthy recipes for foods that kids will actually eat (such as apple crisp, meatballs, pudding popsicles, blueberry muffins, chips made from pita bread, and macaroni and cheese).
This Complete Idiot's Guide does a wonderful job of making feeding and nutrition easy for parents--without making you *feel* like a complete idiot. I highly recommend it and refer to it often myself when making meals and snacks for my own family!
