Every parent wants to know that their baby is getting the very best, but why bother making your own baby food when there are so many choices conveniently located at the grocery store?
When it comes to mealtime, nothing is better than homemade food you prepare yourself, and it’s easier that you think. Armed with a steamer, a blender, and a little planning, in a few hours parents can prepare a month’s supply of healthy, wholesome meals for their infants and toddlers that is bursting with nutrition and flavour.
On May 8, 2005, Random House Canada will publish The Baby’s Table: Over 100 Easy, Healthy and Homemade Recipes for the Pickiest, Most Deserving Eaters on the Planet. Written by Brenda Bradshaw, a teacher, and Dr. Lauren Donaldson Bramley, a family practitioner, this is the most comprehensive resource available for practical advice on feeding your baby.
Part cookbook, part everything-you-need-to-know-to-feed-a-baby, it answers all the feeding and nutrition questions a parent might have. Filled with over 100 healthy unprocessed, unsweetened, unsalted whole food recipes, The Baby’s Table also offers important nutritional information, cooking tips, weekly and monthly meals planners, growth and development charts, and detailed information on topics such as breastfeeding, formulas, food allergies, when to start solids, and more.
A baby’s’ nutrition is of critical importance for physical and intellectual growth and development and has lasting implications for his or her future. Using the tips, recipes, and meal plans provided in The Baby’s Table, you can create your own baby-pleasing fare that offers nutritional advantages not found in commercial brands. Homemade baby food cuts down on unwanted additives and offers your baby a wider variety of textures and flavors than commercial baby food.
All of the recipes in The Baby’s Table are nutritious, safe and taste great. Geared for specific age groups – newborn to four months; from four months; from six months; from eight months; and toddlers — the recipes are simple and quick to prepare and have been reviewed by a physician and tested by parents and babies.
The information in this book is based on the latest medical and nutritional research and complies with the current Canadian guidelines for infant feeding.
