Super Baby Food
Over the last week I read the book Super Baby Food and loved it so much that I had to write a mini review of it here for all who may be interested. Out of all the baby food books and cookbooks that I've read this was by far the most informative and exhaustive on the subject. It provides plenty of instructions for how to prepare your own baby food from vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans, dairy etc. It also includes food safety tips, cooking instructions, storing/ freezing instructions, thawing instructions and more. My favorite part though is that it has tables outlining what individual foods are allowed to be introduced to your child at each monthly marker, as well as sample menus for a balanced daily diet, and sample feeding schedules. This is such a well balanced, nutritious plan for feeding children, and ends up being very economical by relying on quick and easy homemade grain cereals and fruit and vegetable purees.
