Vann founded Organix, her successful English organic children's food company, in 1991. Her cookbook offers 70 recipes for babies and children from four to seven months up through preschool age, along with lots of information on organic and natural foods, nutrition, and other health issues, in an appealing format that includes full-page color shots of the food and photographs of adorable, rosy-cheeked children. The recipes are easy and sometimes unusual, and though Vegetable and Coconut Korma or mashed Corn and Potato with herbs may be too adventurous for some children, others will love them. Sure to appeal to parents, this is recommended for all collections on cooking for children.

I guess the bottom line is to skip the filler in this book and head right to the recipes- you won't be disappointed.
One of the best things about the book is that the foods are quite different from what you would find in the store or at most restuarants and to see your child take to these foods (as well as you) is simply wonderful.
As well as the recipes there are chapters about how to buy, store and prepare organic ingredients, and menu planners and child development information. I've tried to make it fun and informative about organic food as well as appealing with lots of food values and cooking tips. I hope you enjoy it.
I'd welcome all your comments about the recipes and any other way in which the book could be improved. ....
The author also does not seem to be well informed of the optimal length breastfeeding should continue. The World Health Organization along with UNICEF recommmends that breastfeeding continue to age two and beyond. Ms. Vann mentions some cultures breastfeed for this long only when there is inadequate food available.
This book has some useful recipes but I would not recommend it to anyone based on the poor information on breastfeeding. After all, a babies FIRST food has the biggest impact on a child's health!
The first recipe I decided to make for my son was a pasta dish (I bought this book when he was over a year old), and when I looked at the ingredients I realized it was for a SINGLE serving (for a 10 month old). So,I have just decided to make larger portions and freeze some of the leftovers.
