I was disapointed with this book. While it did include some good information, such as the reccommended age to start baby with at many foods, I could've thought the recipes up myself. For example the carrot recipe took up a third of a page and was basically: Boil the carrots until soft, then blend until smooth. The recipe for rice cereal is to go buy a box at the store and add water. I make rice cereal for my baby by boiling brown rice in distilled water until it is very soft, then putting it in the blender with more distilled water. It tastes much better than the boxed crap at the store and if needed formula can be added to improve the iron content. THis book is also not for the nutritionist. Many of the recipes for toddlers have sugar and butter added to them. I don't even eat butter or sugar, why give it to a baby? I make my baby's dinner every night when I make my own. Only takes a minute to blend. These recipes are meant to make in advance and freeze

I was disappointed to read the other reviews for this book as I thought it was a life saver for me when I decided to make all my own food for my son. Although the focus of the book is more for infants, I still occasionally refer to some recepies for my 18 month now. It was the first book I picked up to help me understand how to prepare all his food and I found the chapters at the beginning very helpful and informative. About 1/2 the book is information and the other half is recepies. I used this book frequently in preparing and freezing meals for my son when I first introduced foods to him at 6 months. Then when he was older, some ideas like making meatballs with pieces of cheese inside I thought was creative and never heard of before - and something he really enjoys. Again, I thought the information was very informative and very glad that I puchased the book.

Now even the most novice parent can provide baby with homemade baby foods that are tastier and nutritionally superior to even the best of the processed (and expensive!) jarred foods with Homemade Baby Food Pure & Simple. This "user friendly" compendium of easily prepared, pediatrician-approved recipes come with clear instructions, nutritional guidelines, and sound advice, including practical hints and invaluable tips that will save both time and money. Sample menus and food introduction charts are provided, along with special recipes for allergies and sleep difficulties. Homemade Baby Food Pure & Simple is an enthusiastically recommended addition to personal and community library parenting reference collections.

I echo the thoughts of another reviewer who said she would not feed these meals to her child. Many of the recipes contain age-inappropriate ingredients, and the most important thing seems to be that the recipes appeal to the adult palate rather than meet the child's needs. According to the book, the author became interested in writing a baby food book before she had children and when she was working in a completely unrelated field - sounds a bit suspicious to me. Perhaps she just thought it would be fun and didn't take the time to do the proper research. Choose one of many other excellent baby food books rather than wasting your money on this one.

I just want to say that I found this book to contradict itself in many sections. I was also very dissapointed to find that it did not even start into a description of how to prepare your own baby food until chapter 5. Half the book has information on breastfeeding and formula feeding. I also was dissapointed with the recipes that were included, the recipes do not include detailed preparation information and asume that you know exactly how to prepare it already.

Do not buy this book! There are many recipes that introduce foods in too early compared to the information in other baby cook books. I was shocked to see recipes which included eggs and yogurt for four month olds! (both of which should not be introduced until after six months) Check out "The Healthy Baby Meal PLanner" or "First Foods" they are much easier to read and in my opinion safer choices.

This is the only book I found written with pediatrician guidelines and was real simple to read. The author did an outstanding job dividing this into categories of 4 months, 7 months and Toddler age. I don't know what the other reviewer was speaking to on eggs (she actually introduced them at 12 months)..I work an 8 hour shift and its nice to know my little one can eat fresh homemade baby food.

I so appreciate the information in this book. I knew that I wanted to make homemade baby food; however, I was intimidated by the process until I read this book. I feel confident in my abilities to do this now. I can't wait to start this next stage in a couple of weeks. The information is easy to follow and extremely practical. Making homemade baby food is no longer intimidating!
