Just A Few Of The Handy Baby-Safe Foods You’ll Find:
Broccoli is an excellent source of vitamin C, which helps improve iron absorption. Steam, roast, or sauté veggies until they are tender, and do not be afraid to season them! Before serving any vegetables and fruits to your baby, check that they can be easily smashed between your thumb and forefinger.
Strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries provide plenty of vitamin C. Frozen, defrosted strawberries are a great texture, and the cold temperature can be soothing for sore, teething gums. Because berries are smaller pieces of fruit, they can be difficult for babies who use a palmar grasp.
Beef is an excellent source of iron. With steak, which should be cooked to 145°F or 62.8° C, the goal in the beginning is for your baby to suck out the juices rather than eat the actual meat. On the other hand, very tender meatballs and ground beef shaped into strips are often easier for babies to negotiate.

How much more comfortable for everyone to give the littlest family member a seat at the table."―Miriam Weinstein, Author of The Surprising Power of Family Meals

Drawbacks: It would have been nice to have just a couple recipes in each section to help really be able to get started, although there are options to serve foods singly. Organizationally, I would have liked to see the allergy section and the "foods to avoid in the first year" at the beginning of the book up perhaps with other emergency and health concerns like choking. In my mind some allergic reactions and choking are on similar playing field. Portion sizes and frequency would be helpful to know. For instance, as a working mom I am not comfortable letting daycare handle this when my little is just beginning...is it important to offer three meals, is one fine, two, since it is for practice and baby is still getting most calories from milk?
