The instructions in this book for making baby food purees were very helpful. I'm using a blender, rather than a food processor or food mill as they recommend, so my purees don't turn out a fine as they probably otherwise would, but that's ok. Another plus is that their recipes are not overly complicated or strange, so you might actually be willing to cook them and be able to get your child to eat them.
That being said, here's what I wasn't as happy with:
* Some info was just plain wrong, which made me question the reliability of the other info where I didn't know if it was right or wrong. For instance, they recommend you just use tap water because all water that isn't well water is fluoridated. That is incorrect. I have to use bottled water (and make sure it has fluoride) because our city water has some naturally occurring fluoride so none is added, but the naturally occuring level is well below recommended fluoride levels for children. So if I hadn't known better, I might have accepted their advice without checking myself.
* They do provide a suggested schedule for introducing foods, but they don't explain why they schedule particular foods for a particular age. Knowing whether it falls that way on the schedule because the food should not be offered earlier or because that's just the way it worked out in their hypothetical schedule would have been helpful.
* They use sugar more than I expected in their recipes for older babies and toddlers. I'm not an anti-sugar zealot, but even molasses would be a preferable choice for baby food.
It's a good book, but not a great one, and I certainly wouldn't use it as my only resource for baby food.

first off there only appears to be only one pediatrician listed in the recognition section of the book. this is the worst book i have ever read about baby food. i am making my own baby food and wanted to get recipes and techniques on how to make the foods. the book starts out with buying brand name cereal. the whole idea of making at home baby food is to make it at home. there are many other rice or other grains that you can buy ground up that are not processed into flakes. i did it with my first child. another thing that really bothered me was that commercial juice was named as the best juice for your baby. In another chapter alcohol is mentioned for the adults to put into their own drinks when they want to spice things up or make them fun. If you are making food for your children why are you drinking around them. Coke was also said to be okay to give toddlers when they are sick as long as it is flat. YOU DON'T GIVE CHILDREN CAFFEINE! Any doctor tells you this whenever your child is sick or otherwise. I don't see how they could allow this woman to teach a mommy cooking course. This book disgusted me and i shipped it back. Paying postage to send it back was worth it just to get it out of my home. I wouldn't dare sell it to someone that was really wanting to make baby food. I am not one of those moms that restricts their child from everything but come on, common sense tells you not to do these things. Your childs health is the number one concern, that is why you are looking at this book right. Skip to the next one this is just terrible. If i had more than a 1,000 word minimum you would definitely hear more things that were written in this book.

Just wanted to give my 2 cents. These reviews really help me. I carefully read the reviews for this book and I am glad I bought this book. I found it very easy. Most of the baby purees are probably common knowledge anyway, but I needed someone to spell it out for me and this book does. It has lots of good recipes for older babies and toddlers. Our family would eat several of the toddler recipes. I recommend it to everyone. Making my own baby food has been a wonderful experience. I find that it doesn't take much time. I will cook for about 3 hours on a weekend and it will last for 2 to 3 weeks and my baby is getting fresh preservative free food. The only reason I do this is because I didn't want my child to be a picky eater and I heard this helps him learn to appreciate real food. The book gives explicit instructions on everything from cooking to freezing, etc. I highly recommend it. Thanks.

I went through a few different baby food books before I happened upon this one, quite by chance, but boy am I glad I did. The recipes are so quick and easy to make, very healthy, and they're encouraged me to try new foods I never would have thought I liked!
The layout of this book is fairly good: simple, clean design and easy to follow. The only thing I would change is to list the recipes by age rather than food group, but that is really just a minor point. This book has a great deal of information about starting solids with your infant, and even has a great little schedule for when to introduce what foods. There is also just the right amount of background nutritional info in this book: no information overload or boring repetitiveness. Definitely the best baby food book I've come across in my search, and the recipes are fantastic!

I was anticipating a book filled with helpful hints on how to manage cooking and storing baby food. But if you know how to steam fruits and vegtables, you know about half of what the book covers. There is one paragraph on how to store frozen food. I was more interested in, how to store bananas for example, whole, mashed, pureed?
Alot of basic info given on when to wean from breast or bottle (this does not pertain to cooking in my opinion). So save some money and just steam your foods and puree them for baby. When your toddler gets ready for finger foods, use your common sense and give them what you eat and expose them to lots of different tastes in a systematic way. It does mention the "no-no" foods like grapes, sugar, salt, peanuts and honey, but again I received most of this info from their doctor anyway.
As a side note, the outdated cover and lack of photos does not entice me in any way to completely read this book. Recipes would have been more organized had they been listed in order like 4-6 months, 6-9 months...instead they are listed in categories.
