How much are adult tastes in food formed by the quality of baby food? Infants raised on the recipes included in Better Baby Food already have the advantage of a mother or father with sufficient time and equipment resources to make homemade food instead of purchasing those little jars. But even if a parent can't cook all of a baby's meals, some homemade foods in baby's diet are sure to satisfy both parent and child. Daina Kalnins and Joanne Saab start with information on general infant nutrition, breastfeeding, and formulas before addressing baby's first solid foods. Sectioning recipes into breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and desserts, they give recipes for foods for each developmental stage from six months through 18 months and beyond. As baby matures, foods become suitable for adults, too, offering treats such as shepherd's pie and ratatouille. Truly pampered tots even get a fully seasoned risotto minus only the wine. Measurements appear in American and metric measures, and recipes carry brief nutritional analyses. Mark Knoblauch

An excellent and ideal source for parents, especially new parents ... It is a true blessing for parents to have such a source handy and readily available for use at home. It is definitely recommended for personal use and a great book for public libraries. (Kavita Mundle E-Streams 2002-04-01)See all Product Description

I find it appalling and frustrating that those in health professions have such little sense for what constitutes good nutrition. I guess I shouldn't be surprised considering what I've been fed in hospitals in the past.
If you are really interested in raising a healthy child, try "Super Baby Food" by Ruth Yaron. Not only are the recipes full of nutrition, but the book also includes tips for making child-friendly cleaning products and other projects.
As for earlier reviews that the cookbook is filled with sugar and fat filled recipes, well yes there are some that I would not feed my child, but you can also alter these recipes to your preference. However, the majority of these recipes are an excellent way to start your child off healthy.
