Baby-Led Weaning is the definitive guide to this crucial period in your child’s development, and shows you how to help your baby:Participate in family meals right from the startExperiment with food at his or her own paceDevelop new abilities, including hand-eye coordination and chewingLearn to love a variety of foods and to enjoy mealtimes

We are all Born to Eat and it seems only natural for us to start at the beginning—with our babies.

You don’t have to cook another entire meal to feed just baby, nor blend everything you eat into a puree to support healthy growth in an infant. With a little patience, presence, and skill, you can transform nearly any family meal into a baby-friendly food. Who knew a little planning could have the whole family eating together, and better?
Aside from the United States, most countries are accepting of babies starting of solids with the foods of the family.

• establish a meal and snack schedule (children will feel more secure and eat better)
• decipher the many labels and ingredient lists at the grocery store

• encourage the foods that will discourage chronic disease, from high blood pressure to heart disease

Easy Indian Super Meals takes flavour-inspiration from Indian home-cooking, combining ingredients naturally full of goodness - 'Super Foods' - with ingredients naturally packed with flavour - 'Super Spices' - to create simple, super-delicious recipes suitable for children from 7 months old.
Adding toddler-friendly spices to your child’s meals is a fantastic way to encourage them to love their food. Oregano and mint, nutmeg, cinnamon, turmeric and ground cumin, for example, add delicious flavour fast and offer natural health benefits too.
Watch your child happily munch their way through Mint and Coriander Veggie Stew, Creamy Sweet Potato Dream or Saffron Date Kheer (creamy rice pudding), looking forward to every mealtime and each new food you share with them.
There is no added salt, sugar or chillies in sight as all recipes adher to the UK Department of Health’s guidelines for weaning and beyond.
Healthy recipes for kids include baby food that is free of trans fats and artificial food coloring. These 12 recipes are made with fresh fruit, are easy to make and can be made in batches and fed to your baby for a few meals. Making baby food is not complicated and is the most preferable choice when it comes to feeding your baby.
Recipes and healthy snacks for kids in "How To Make Baby Food" include a banana puree, a banana sushi, fruit yogurt, a no-milk pudding and more.
Parents will also find information on fruit for young kids and tips for getting kids to want to eat more fruit.
Healthy eating should begin when your child is a baby. When you make baby food for your child, you are starting your child on the path to a healthy lifestyle as he or she grows up.

World-renowned research neuroscientist, nutrition expert, and author of What to Eat When You're Pregnant Dr. Nicole M. Avena presents an essential guide for new parents on feeding babies during their critical first two years. Answering common questions about picky eaters, food allergies, diversifying baby's appetite, eating out or on the go, feeding baby at daycare or when with another caregiver, and food safety, this comprehensive guide offers easy monthly meal plans and baby-friendly, nutrient-rich recipes designed to support your baby's developmental milestones.
‘Exceeded my expectations! In-depth introduction to weaning, including useful nutritional information, plus lots of lovely recipes appropriate to each stage of weaning – and the ones for toddlers are fantastic for the whole family to share, too!’
Weaning my little ones was a joyous, messy and occasionally testing experience! This book aims to help you through the next development phase: introducing your baby to the colourful, flavourful, wonderful world of food.
The thought of weaning can be daunting to the most self-assured mums and dads. I know I felt that way, even with my third! But while every baby is different, one thing is the same for all parents: the importance of serving them delicious, nutritious dishes with minimal fuss and maximum benefits.
There is no one-size-fits all approach and there are decisions to be made: spoon-feeding purees or baby-led weaning? What equipment don’t you need and where should you spend extra? With so much contradictory advice out there, I wanted to provide a go-to guide that arms you with everything you need to know as your baby starts on solids.
You’ll read about the basics of good nutrition; techniques; equipment; ages and stages (what they can have, and when). I’ll also share my go-to recipes for the key stages in the first 15 months, developed over the process of weaning my three children. These are simple, easy-to-follow meals and plans that require minimal prep time, make the most of your ingredients and won’t break the bank. I’ve also provided recipes for the months and years that follow, including sections on feeding the entire family (the ultimate goal!) and the perfect things to serve at party time.
There will be testing moments but there will be joyous ones too – I’ll never forget the look on my children’s faces when they first tasted baby rice! So take a deep breath, trust your intuition and dive in!

In Real Food for Mother and Baby, Nina explains why some commonly held ideas about pregnancy and infant nutrition are wrongheaded--and why real food is good for growing minds and bodies. While her general concept isn't surprising, some of the details might be. For expecting mothers and babies up to two years old, the body's overwhelming requirements are fat and protein, not vegetables and low-fat dairy--which is why, for example, cereals aren't right for babies, but meat and egg yolks are excellent.
Nina shares tips and advice like a trusted friend, and in this updated edition, her afterword presents the latest findings and some newly won wisdom from watching her three children grow on real food.
Here, in her first cookbook, she shares over 150 recipes that the whole family will love, including Three-Ingredient Banana Pancakes, Sweet Potato Super Muffins, Tuna and Quinoa Baby Bites,, Avocado Pasta, Chicken Korma Pies and Buddha Bowls. Aileen also includes advice on how to get started when your baby is ready to be weaned, as well as her very own kitchen tips.
Wave goodbye to wasting time on purées and preparing separate meals - with The Baby-Led Feeding Cookbook you can enjoy watching your baby effortlessly develop a happy relationship with food for life!
