About Feeding Baby:

baby food cookbook"Your baby deserves the best in life- food is no exception! Feeding Baby is the ultimate guide to preparing and feeding wholesome foods for your infant, with helpful nutritional tips, picky eating solutions, and with over 80 recipes. Once you discover how easy and affordable it is to make baby food at home, you'll take comfort in knowing your child is receiving the best nutrition possible."

My thoughts:  My children are older than babies, but I do hope to have grandchildren someday.

Four hours each week day I spend at a Jr High School serving kids lunch.  Yes, I am a lunch lady. It is frustrating for us to enforce laws to make sure kids are given healthier choices to eat.  Kids do not want it!  They want the junk food and the fruits and vegetables are thrown in the garbage.

That's why I like the approach of this book.  If children are taught from the time they are babies, it wouldn't be an issue to take fruits and vegetables. They would be grateful  that the pizza is made with a wheat crust instead of a white crust.

This is found in the first chapter of the book.

Many parents focus on nutrition alone. They focus on the numbers of nutrition-eating 5 fruits and vegetables each day, drinking X amount of breast milk or formula ounces per day, or eating the recommended number of calories. Parents should pay attention to nutrition. After all, it is vital for growth and development.  The problem occurs when parents focus too much on the numbers.  Nutrition is just one component of healthy eating.  Parents should also concentrate on the variety of foods and lifelong eating healthy behaviors.

I thought that this book would be a basic cookbook on foods that would be nutritious and palatable for babies.  I was partially wrong.  The book looks at ways to help babies explore, play with, taste, and learn to accept new foods.  There is a very practical approach to teaching (yes, teaching) babies to like new foods.
