Format: Paperback
When I purchased this book, I was primarily looking for homemade recipes for baby cereal...when I received the book, i went straight to "Baby's First Rice Cereal". I was disappointed to see " 1 tbsp iron-fortified prepared rice cereal, 4-5 tbsp expressed breast milk or formula" "mix all ingredients together...". I didn't need to spend this money to get the directions on how to make Nestle rice cereal...I could have read the directions on the box. Needless to say, not too pleased. So, I flip the pages and go to "brown rice". Same stuff. You don't need to be a rocket scientist to know how to cook rice. I was expecting something a little more different, I guess.

Great book for babies, toddlers and your older kids!! Feb. 15 2010
By S. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is exactly what I wanted in a baby food book. I wanted more longevity then the simple purees and I love the organic info and eating healthy. Lots of info in simple quick paragraph/pages. I don't need chapters and pages full of why you should feed/eat organics like most books do - bore you to death. I wouldn't have gotten the book if I didn't want to do organic. This one is precise, doesn't overdo the organic theories and just gives you the info you need to make the food. It gives recipes for up to ages 3 but really most of these recipes past 12 months are great for any kids 10 or younger - heck even adults. I have tried a few on my 8 year old (lentil soup, lemony rice, veggie lasagna, cherry coconut rice pudding) and she loves them. Me too! My 7 month old has had more then 10 recipes and they are great. Also, the items do not have to be organic if you can't afford them. The recipes are different but almost all of them have the items in a basic grocery store. All you need is a blender.

Chapter 1: ORGANICS 8 pages explaining what constitutes organic, what items are a must, what items are not as important, what items to get pesticide-free, when to get canned, frozen, fresh, How things will last in fridge/freezer.

Chapter 2: INTRO TO FEEDING Gives you a layout on when to start items, best times to introduce, watching for allergies, how long to wait to try new items, what items can cause constipation/diarrhea, food safety, sample kitchen equipment, etc...

Chapter 3: 4-6 months that are common sense but still needed to be written. When to mix with water or formula/breast milk. Most are one items for starting out but some are mixtures like banana pumpkin mash, pear mango puree, avocado and barley cereal.

Chapter 4: 6-9 months and WOW there are so many types of various recipes here. Coconut chicken and banana, kasha with peach and pear puree, lamb and pumpkin mash, orzo and sweet pea puree, island breakfast cereal, beef stew mash, etc...

Chapter 5: 9-12 months and the recipes keep coming. Mango honeydew sorbet, quinoa & peaches, turkey chili, happy birthday vanilla cake, carrot and zucchini muffins, lentil soup, etc...

Chapter 6: 12-18 months. Spaghetti squash and herbs, caribbean baked risotto, chicken pot pie muffins, cinnamon yogurt fruit dip, lemony rice asparagus salad, etc...

Chapter 7: 18-24 months: Broiled pineapple with frozen yogurt, zucchini yachts, cherry apple coconut rice pudding, eggy boats, veggie stir fry, pinto bean roll-up, etc...

Chapter 8: 24-36 months: veggie lasagna, white chili, breakfast pizza, beef brochettes, sunflower seed butter cookies, tofu stuffed shells, lemon rasberry ice pops, etc...

Appendix A
Shows sample weekly organic menues for all of the ages above. (I LOVE this!!!)

Appendix B
recommended websites to refer to if needed

Appendix C
Nutritional info for all the common baby foods (LOVE this too!!)

Appendix D
Glossery of basic cooking terms

Then an INDEX of all the recipes by name and also listed by ingredients.

Hope this review helps - I love the EVERYTHING books and this does not disappoint - highly recommend this book.

great book March 23 2009
By Bellingham mom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book when my son was just getting into solid food. Lots of good ideas for food combinations that I hadn't thought of. Looks like there is enough to keep us going for a long time. The book inspired me to break away from the baby food jar and get out the food mill. Easy recipes.

All the information you need in feeding your infant Oct. 16 2009

This is a great cookbook. The introduction and information it gives on lactose intolerance, allergies, etc. is exactly what my pediatrician said. The recommendations are great and the recipes are good and easy.

Best Toddler Cookbook I've Found March 13 2010
By scanpennett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I own so many baby & toddler cookbooks. I have always made my own organic baby food. Honestly, until probably 10 months you don't need a book because you can only try one new thing every few days - you've got to try them before you can combine them. This is the one book I wish I would have had when he was around 10 months. He loved organic lentils out of the jar (we used when traveling) but I had no good baby lentil recipes. This book provides a lot of vegatarian recipes that contain mostly things I already had on hand (had to buy coconut milk & flax oil). I was really happy to see several recipes using quinoa & lentils for protien sources - it's hard when my little guy only wants eggs & peanut butter for protien. I only wish they had some pictures.

Not a cook book for baby food March 21 2011
By Cole's Mom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this cook book to make home made baby food for my son when he started solids. Unfortunately the recipes for little ones are pretty basic and pretty much self explanitory. Meaning, a recipe was not needed to make any of them. It was just mashing up a fruit or a veggie. So I was disappointed in it. Now my son is older and I think the book is great! I am getting a lot more use out of it w/ him eating solid foods. I would reccommend a person buying it not as a baby food cook book but a toddler cook book.
