I frequently refer to this book for ideas to feed my incredibly picky toddler, then I pass them up, because the recipes frequently use unhealthy ingredients. If I didn't care about the quality of foods that my son eats, I would just buy him a Happy Meal.
On the other hand, there are some pretty creative ideas that would entice kids to eat. It's useful if you're planning a kids party or for occasional treats, but not for every day cooking. Mommy Made and Daddy Too is a much better cookbook for healthy and balanced eating in my opinion.
One last note: I've noticed that a review gets far less helpful votes than ones that are very positive. Please be objective, wouldn't you rather know that it's not such a great product that's being reviewed BEFORE you buy it?

I own the original, type-written book from the 70's. It sat on the shelf in the kitchen as I was growing up, mom used it constantly. When I was born, in the early 70's, jarred baby food was all the rage. Armed with 'Feed Me, I'm Yours', and a garden, she proceeded to go the extra mile to feed my brother and I homegrown, organic fruits and veggies. She referred to 'the book' constantly. I truly believe that because of that, my health is what it is today.
I've since inherited the book, and am now raising two children. While all of my friends were buying overpriced, overprocessed food, I was happily making our own. To this day, the kids are healthier than any of their friends, and I attribute it to what we fed, and are currently feeding them. So many people think that making food for the kids is time-consuming, but it isn't. You need to make time, because you're investing in the health of your children, and looking ahead, the health of their children as well.
Naturally, since we have the older book, some of the information has been replaced by new statistics, such as not feeding honey to babies, but the newer book has been updated to reflect such changes in thinking...
I recommend this book (and all of Vicki's) to all of my friends. They always are asking to borrow mine, but I treasure my old copy so much, that I don't let it leave the house. I'm always writing down recipes for them instead! I'm hoping someday to be able to pass the book down to our kids, when they have families of their own.

A good guide to introducting nutritious, minimally processed foods to your young children. Commercial baby foods contain so many preservatives and fillers, not to mention being expensive, it's good to see that modern people are still doing it the "old fashioned" way. Another review of this book knocks the concept of making your own baby food, but it is a smart and nutritionally sound alternative to purchasing it, and can partially prevent your child's unconscious conditioning to artificially sweetened or salted processed foods. I personally think that, in turn, can prevent your child from rejecting some new foods (especially vegetables) introduced to them as toddlers simply because they don't taste like "prepared" foods they had been accustomed to on a store-bought baby food diet. If you're cooking healthily for yourself anyway it only makes sense to take a portion of your food and process it yourself for the baby, it's hardly any effort and the results are really worthwhile.

This will be my 8th copy purchased for personal use. I keeploaning them to friends and they "forget" to give themback. I first purchased one at a garage sale when my first child was 6 mos, it proved invaluable. I loaned it to a friend and found myself looking for another. Oh, well. The best thing is most of the recipies and ideas are easy to remember so I can duplicate much of it from memory but some of the clever presentation tricks have to be referred to from time to time when you don't use them as much (love the "sailboat sandwitches"). I should probably just buy a case to give one away everytime a friend or colegue has a baby or a picky toddler, or a B-day party for a elementary school age child. Then again I could just give them the title and point them to Amazon.com(grin). END

This was the only how-to book I had when my six-month old began eating solids, and it really helped me get started. Now that he is a bit older (13 months) I'm a bit disconcerted by the routine use of sugar, fat, white flour, etc. in many of the recipes and recommended foods. While suggesting items such as bacon, frankfurters, etc. it does note that they should be limited. But many modern nutritionists wouldn't suggest them AT ALL (or so it seems to me as a layperson). I'd say this is a fine book for getting your very young baby started, but once s/he is older keep this book as one among several that you turn to for advice. After all, it can be nice to have a book that doesn't make you feel like a rotten mother for giving your kid a small amount of sugar or white flour!

My baby isn't yet old enough to be eating solid foods, but I am so glad I bought this book ahead of time! Simple recipes for fresh, homemade baby foods (ie: puree fresh fruit and freeze in ice cube trays to make individual portions) sound much more appealing than those little jars of goop. This book covers babies from those who are just starting to eat all the way up to picky toddlers. Simple, healthy recipes are given for everything from soups to omlettes ... all with little tricks, like pureeing some veggies to sneak into your toddler's cheese pizza, or adding oatmeal to yogurt instead of milk for a toddler who's just learning to use a spoon. I'd definitely recommend this book, and may purchase additional copies as baby gifts.
