There is huge pressure on parents to think hard about the foods they introduce to their children as they develop and grow – this pocket-sized collection promises maximum nutrition with minimum effort, showing parents how to make healthy purées quickly and easily
We know that the key to children’s health, development and happiness lies in the quality of the food we wean them on, and continue to cook for them, and the food they then want to eat themselves. But it’s all too easy to fall back on jars of processed baby food when you’re feeding your baby, or the same old limited purées you’ve dished up again and again. Lack of time and knowledge often prevents parents from feeding their babies exciting, nutrient-rich food. However, help is on hand.Christine Bailey, an expert in child nutrition, has devised a set of easy-to-follow recipes to help make first foods simple.
The book comes with tables of foods for parents to introduce, and each recipe has a list of nutrients and at-a-glance symbols, as well as tips on preparation and storage.
From a simple Fennel & Apple Purée for the first stage, to a Polenta Florentine or Sesame Stir-Fried Pork & Sweet Potato Mash for 7-9 months, or a Creamy Pesto Chicken with Roast Vegetables, Salmon with Mango & Avocado Salsa, or Pear & Coconut Crumble, for 9-12 months, you’ll find delicious recipes your baby will love and you’ll even want to eat yourself!
