    I am so glad I bought this book; it agrees with my philosophy about shaping children’s palates early, using whole foods, and organic eating in general. The recipes are easy and delicious, and give you ideas for all the way into toddlerhood. I love the inclusion of recipes using meat, fish, and chicken. My daughter has loved everything I have made from this book so far; my husband and I have even eaten a few- with salt and seasoning added for adult taste- and enjoyed them.

    I do, however, agree with Lynn W.- USE WISDOM with certain recipes, since the author does not seem to follow the AAP’s recommendations about when to introduce certain foods, and seems to lack a current understanding about food allergies in children. There are lots of recipes with cow’s milk, tomatoes, and citrus, for example, for very young babies.

    Otherwise, I highly recommend this book as an excellent resource.

    I bought this book looking for homemade baby food recipes and got so much more. Besides having lots of tasty recipes for each stage of your baby’s development it provides valuable nutritional iformation. Each recipe is easy to follow and easy to make. The best part is that they actually taste good! I usually spend 3-4 hours over 2 days to make enough baby food to last a month. A tip, pick a few recipes that use similar ingredients and as Rachel Ray says, “Use it twice, chop it once.”

    To make my life easier most recipes are suitable to freeze. I freeze them in 1 ounce ice cube trays (mostly the fruit purees to add to yogurt, cottage cheese, or baby cereal) and in 4 ounce portions (for the more complete meals). Some of my baby’s favorites are the Lovely Lentils, Apple-Mango Puree (mixed with plain yogurt), and the Sweet Potato with Spinach and Peas. I love this book and I love knowing my baby is eating healthy, tasty food that I’ve prepared.

    This review is from: Top 100 Baby Purees: 100 Quick and Easy Meals for a Healthy and Happy Baby (Hardcover)

    My daughter is turning eight months this week. She is not eating textured foods yet or finger foods, but she is getting bored with one-ingredient foods and bland food like just sweet potatoes by themselves, so I’m starting to make her some varied purees with different ingredients and spices. Hence, why I ordered this book!

    What I was expecting to find was exactly what the title said…100 puree recipes. Not a book divided into ages with age-appropriate recipes. The first section tells you how to steam and puree vegetables and fruits. Then moves on to 6 month old foods, and then 7-9 month foods and then 9-12 month recipes which aren’t even purees. They look more like recipes I would make for my husband and I, not that it’s a bad thing at all, because we want her eating what we’re eating in a few months!

    I’m not returning the book, because some of the recipes look awesome and I can’t wait to try them, but it’s not what I was looking for at all when I ordered it. It really should be retitled to something other than Top 100 Baby Purees when that’s not really what it is.

    But the BEST part of this book that is so different than other books is that it has some great puree recipes for chicken and beef and fish, and I haven’t been able to find that anywhere else. And the recipes call for onion and garlic, which are two ingredients that my husband cook a lot with, so it’s going to be a good cookbook for us. So, three stars for the quality of the book and the ease of the recipes which I can tell already by reading them since I’m an experienced cook, but a two star deduction for the bad title.
