I actually won this book at the American Baby Faire in Atlanta last year after the author gave a talk. It is an invaluable resource that I refer back to time after time. I especially valued the information on bottle feeding, and how to introduce solids. The first few chapters that included information on cancer, pesticides, etc. were also very helpful. I have recommended this book to other new moms who were just as happy with it. Because I’ve been so happy with this book, I plan on buying Swinney’s book “Eating Expectantly” for my next pregnancy.
This book is fantastic
I bought this book hoping to find some tasty recipes for my five-year-old. I did! And I found a whole lot of practical advice on everything from how to make fast food healthy to what to pack in school lunches. Some of my favorite tips include the “Parents’ Ten Commandments of Healthy Eating” and “Ten Tricky Ways to get Your Kids to Eat Their Veggies.” The recipes are also great. My son absolutely loves the “Batman and Robin Noodles” and the “Raging Ravioli.”
Highly recommend for the cooking impaired!!
I bought this book because I don’t like to cook but, gee, had to feed the kids. This book offered quick, very simple recipes that included ingredients I would have on hand. I also liked the variety of recipes that give me an opportunity to expose my kids to different foods disguised in more recognizable dishes (not just with pasta or in casseroles). Great for meal ideas, includes a lot of info on feeding suggestions–a good read. I wouldn’t recommend for children under 1 year old since this is the pivotal age for many food allergies. 4 stars because this book tries to cover all bases by including info on breastfeeding and baby feeding, pages I would rather have seen spent on more great recipes. Includes monthly meal planner, handy meal quickies, and fat/cal/chol/vitamin/mineral breakdowns for each recipe.
Not Just A Cookbook
When I got this book I thought it would give me a lot of quick and nutritional meals for my family, but the author covered so much more. She covered nutritional balance; allergies; and how to change your family’s current habits. I was very pleased. Also, I was pleased that even as a dietition she recognized that not everyone has the time to devote to meal planning. I would much rather spend time laughing and playing with my children. This comes from a woman who planned on being that perfect stay at home hippie type mother.
I love this book. I am also a registered dietitian and have not only used this book for my own children, but I have given this book as a baby shower gift. It’s perfect for a first time mom. This is the only book that I have run across that tells you exactly how much to feed a baby, from ounces of formula to servings of first solids.
Very Helpful and Informative!!
I actually won this book at the American Baby Faire in Chicago this weekend after she gave a talk. This book is actually very helpful and informative. My daughter is starting soilds and it gave ideas and meal plans that I can give to her sitter. I would recommend this book to anyone who has a child that is about to or is starting soilds.
Lots of easy and healthy recipes the whole family will love
Our family was bored with same old recipes and this book has GREAT ideas – using “normal” healthy foods! My 2 and 5 yr. old have loved every recipe so far and so has my husband! A must book if you seek refreshingly simple recipes with healthy foods.
Great book and it is helpful for me to cook for my son. Fast shipping!
