“Making your own delicious and nutritious baby food could not be easier as this lovely book explains. I can’t think of a better or more enjoyable way to start a baby on a lifetime of happy and healthy eating exploration than to mash and purée your way through every one of these recipes. You will want to eat these foods too!”

“This well-written and highly attractive book surpasses the traditional expert advice on the nutritional content and preparation of healthy foods by invoking a developmental approach to infant nutrition. The reader will not only learn how simple it is to make their baby's meals at home, but also understand the developmental and physiological rationales for healthy food choices. This is anticipatory guidance on infant nutrition at its best!”

“As a pediatrician, I spend a good part of my day talking to parents about their children’s diets or lack thereof. “My baby won’t eat anything,” or “All he eats is pasta.” The Best Homemade Baby Food on the Planet, is just what the doctor ordered and exactly what parents should have on their bookshelf. The book is filled with simple, wholesome recipes for infant and toddler meals, along with nutrient analysis, cooking and storage ideas, useful sidebars about when to introduce a new food to a baby, and lots of health tips to set up baby for a lifetime of wellness. As the obesity epidemic spreads across the world, parents are more concerned than ever with what to put in their children’s mouths. The Best Homemade Baby Food on the Planet takes the guesswork and frustration out of this important parenting task.”
