Filled with recipes that take 10 minutes or less to prepare, The Best Homemade Baby Food on the Planet (Fair Winds Press, December 2010, $21.99, paperback with color photos and illustrations) is a trusted resource when it comes to establishing a child’s preferences for healthy, nourishing foods. The book’s recipes not only save time, but parents will be thrilled to learn that preparing baby food at home costs pennies compared to purchasing ready-made baby food.
The book includes informative sidebars that address feeding challenges, food safety and even traveling with baby. Best of all, each recipe features a nutrient analysis, serving size suggestions and recommended preparation methods - assuring parents baby receives the nutrition they need without any of the additives found in most store bought baby food.
The first baby food book to be authored by a Registered Dietitian (Tina Ruggiero) and a Registered Nurse (Karin Knight), the book provides readers with more than 200 baby food recipes that suit every age – from six to 23 months – along with a month-by-month feeding guide, insight about infant nutrition, allergies and more! Inside readers will find:
· Recipes from baby’s first purees to meals for active toddlers;
· Beautiful full-color photographs;
· An easy-to-spot snowflake symbol next to recipes which can be frozen;
· The latest information about infant nutrition, oral care, intolerances and optimal development; and
A fun recipe evaluation chart, so parents can rate what meals their little one likes best.
“Making your own delicious and nutritious baby food could not be easier as this lovely book explains,” writes Marion Nestle, author of What to Eat. “I can’t think of a better or more enjoyable way to start a baby on a lifetime of happy and healthy eating exploration than to mash and purée your way through every one of these recipes. You will want to eat these foods too!”
THE BEST HOMEMADE BABY FOOD ON THE PLANET is an essential resource that will educate parents about ways to help their children embrace healthy eating habits from day one.
