Ok – when I saw this book as available on Blogging for Books, I jumped all over it. We had a so-so time transitioning Sheffield to table foods. He really like his purees, but didn’t seem to really want to eat any big people food. He loved his puffs, and his yogurt melts, and maybe one or two bites of scrambled egg, but other than that he was unimpressed.
I was dying for ideas, so this book seemed like an answered prayer of sorts.
The authors of this book are comprised of pediatricians, dieticians, lactation consultants, and chefs. Plus, they all have kids of their own, so they have got this stuff down pat. The book goes through every stage of eating, from the very beginning to introducing kids to table food, plus breaking down picky eating habits (!!!!). The book examines all sorts of diets for children, including how and when to introduce foods that can produce a strong allergic reaction.
The book includes a super easy Q & A format, as well as some recipes for purees and table food. The recipe for the mini Vegetable Frittata sounds right up Sheffield’s alley – no meat!
All in all, I was really glad I came upon this book when I did — we really really needed to read some of the things in here, and I fully plan on passing this book down to new mothers as well.
Definitely a helpful book!
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
