New Cookbook promotes healthy foods for babies and toddlers

Posted on Sep 01, 2010 by Maggie LaBarbera

I usually review books that focus on healthy eating for children but I just came across a special book that focuses on healthy foods for babies and toddlers.

The book is called "Organically Raised - Conscious Cooking for Babies and Toddlers"  by Anni Daulter and Shanté Laney.

This book does a great job of walking you through the steps of introducing solid food and when and how to expand food choices.  We often don't talk about the effects of processed foods on babies but this book answers lots of those questions with supporting research.  It is very simple to read and well written.

The book is sprinkled with little sayings and affirmations called "Mama Mantra" and I love that because it isn't always easy!  Babies have a little mind of their own - not to mention toddlers and food can be a challenge.  "Mama Tips" are also found throughout the book along with some special topics like "food allergies".

It is very visually appealing with lots of  pictures of babies, toddlers and healthy foods throughout the book.  I like books that make me want to look more.   I found myself smiling a lot as I looked at full page shots of kids learning about foods.  Brought back lots of memories of when my children were being introduced to solid foods. (oh they grow so fast!)

The book is filled with recipes too!  If you have a baby or toddler, this is a must have book.
