Review

?Babies are built from food,? writes Greene (Raising Baby Green) in this straightforward manual for eco-conscious parents. Most of the nutritional advice here will not be new to parents; it?s not specific to parents who are choosing organic or sustainable food. The strength of the book is in its personality. Greene shares his own childhood eating habits and takes a nonjudgmental approach, offering specific brand suggestions for organic baby formulas knowing that some mothers need that option. Parents of picky eaters will especially appreciate the tips for engaging toddlers in new flavors and aromas. Verdict This title will stand out among the proliferation of organic cookbooks for babies and toddlers, as it capably tackles the why (we feed our kids healthy food) and how (to get them to eat it). ?Library Journal Xpress Review(Oct 2010)

This book has everything! If you're like me and a picky eater, you've probably wondered how to get your kids to eat things you don't eat. I was fed a very limited variety of foods as a child, and as a result I've always been very picky. This book explains why me and countless other Americans prefer the taste of packaged, processed foods loaded with salt and sugar, over fresh, wholesome, good food. So what did people do before the bland, jarred baby food of the industrial revolution hit store shelves? Read this book to find out!

What is included:

The definition of "baby" food
How to eat while pregnant to maximize the chances of your baby being an adventurous eater later on
How to introduce foods in a way your baby will find intriguing
Recipes
How we inadvertently teach our toddlers to become picky eaters
Facts about what's actually in baby food
How jarred baby food came to be in the first place
How to approach eating as "fun" and create enjoyable food experiences

You not only become educated on what to feed your baby, you become educated on the entire process of how consumers came to depend on Gerber and other baby food companies as the only way to feed a baby. I was always told that it wasn't safe to introduce too many varieties of fruits and veggies to a baby at once, but this book dispels that myth and so many others.

this is one of my favorite baby feeding books! forget the bland, jarred purees with BPA leaching caps, the constipating cereals, and the different "stages" that commercial baby food manufacturers try to sell us. dr. greene shows us why it is so much better to make our own baby foods, and how easy it can be! dr. greene (like dr. sears) also recommends the using a "Treasure Tray," a fun tray filled with healthy finger foods for baby (or toddler or even older) and letting him/her explore different foods, tastes and textures. we also always let our baby nibble off of our plates, and did what is called 'child led introduction to solids' and she loved it! today, at 3 1/2, she eats any and everything i put in front of her-- including kale and broccoli.

I will have to agree with another reviewer who says this book is good for beginners. For those who have a fairly decent knowledge of nutrition and healthier alternatives and those who did their research while pregnant, on the other hand, this book may simply be more of the same.
While I enjoyed what the book had to say regarding the "magical" properties of herbs etc, my largest complaint would be the lack of recipes throughout the book. There are some, and while the text does not call itself a cookbook, I believe more recipes, with a background on why they are the best choice for your child, would have been more suited to my own personal needs. A lot of the information is what you would find in any pregnancy guide, magazine or website.
If you have already had children or are one who is extremely health conscious, you are not likely to find a host of profound information in this book that you have not come across previously. That being said, it is certainly a viable guide for those who want to change their nutritional lifestyles for themselves, their kids and their environment (if they have not already done so).

I ordered this book because I really enjoyed reading Raising Baby Green. Feeding Baby Green actually covers a lot of the same information covered in Raising Baby Green, but goes into a bit more detail. I pretty much skipped the whole first section on what to eat during pregnancy, since Raising Baby Green already covered the topic.

Overall, the book is practical and useful. I especially liked that Dr. Greene covered formula/bottle feeding. I had not expected to need that section, but after having had serious problems while breastfeeding my son, I was thankful that he gave suggestions for keeping bottle feeding as "green" as possible. However, I think he also covered that topic in Raising Baby Green, as well.

In short, I did like this book, and I found it to be helpful. If I had to do it over again, though, I would check out Feeding Baby Green from the library and buy Raising Baby Green, instead of the other way around.

Pros:
*The writer was not brought up eating the healthiest. So, I feel that I can somewhat relate as opposed to someone who has eaten healthy all of their lives and didn't have to make a change.
*Easy to understand, not very technical yet comes across as very sound advice.
*The cover has a "waxy" feel, so it probably won't get messed up if you get food or something else on it.
*I really like how he advocates learning opportunities for you and the kids (letting them pick out fruits/veggies at the store, having a little herb garden to pick from, etc.)
*Although this is a very wordy book, there are some bullet points (or lists) that he gives you that you could highlight and refer back to later. He has a "biodiversity checklist" at the back (about 3 total pages) that I think is neat and would be a great exercise to do with your kids when they are older (besides doing it yourself).

Cons:
*not many "recipes" as I thought there might be, although not a big deal to me.
*I'm a little surprised that he did not talk about foods to eat (or avoid) for breastfeeding. I know that could be a large topic in and of itself, but I thought he would have at least touched on it. (yes, he tells you to limit caffeine, no alcohol, etc.) but I'm talking about foods themselves that will enhance your supply or might give gas to the little ones.

Notes/Neutral:
*152 pages (out of 257) covered his background, pregnancy and up to a baby 3 months of age). Just trying to give you an idea what most of the book is spent upon.
*At times, he does list brands of things he's recommending.
*Basically, if you don't grow it yourself or get food from a co-op, he recommends organic food/formula.
