In THE WHOLESOME BABY FOOD GUIDE, Maggie Meade will show you how fast and easy it is to feed your baby fresh homemade goodness. Baby food can be fresh, vibrant and delicious when it's made easily at home – and made from foods the whole family enjoys too. Food for babies does not have to come from a jar and be tasteless, processed and bland. With more than 150 recipes, as well as storage tips, and allergy alerts, this is the only baby food book you will ever need. Maggie also reviews the three major stages of a baby's learning to eat:
4-6 months | 6-8 months | 8 months and beyond to toddlerhoodWritten for parents and caregivers, Maggie knows the pressures of mealtime and the barrage of conflicting information on feeding babies; she made homemade baby foods for all three of her kids, including twins. With courage, humor, and gentle motivation, this book will show parents that their baby's food doesn't have to come from a jar to be healthy and safe. In fact, the healthiest, safest, and tastiest (not to mention least expensive!) foods for babies are those cooked from real ingredients in the kitchen at home.

This book sets the stage for a child's lifelong love of healthy and wholesome foods. Move over commercial baby food companies — parents are getting into the kitchen!

Love this book!

 on May 9, 2012

I purchased this book after spending some time on the Wholesome Baby Food website. I really wanted to make my own baby food but was apprehensive about the time involved. As a working mom, I don’t have a lot of spare time these days. This book gave me just the push I needed and I am so happy I decided to go for it. It really does just take an hour or two each month to make tons of delicious baby food! My son has happily eaten everything I’ve made so far– even the green veggies. And the savings can’t be beat! The first batch of food I made cost just $9 and it lasted thru the first month that he started solids. Compare that to the pouches of organic baby food at $1.19-$1.49 each, and it’s a no-brainer! I also loved the wealth of information in the first half of the book before you even get to the recipes. It’s only been 2 months of solid food and I’ve pulled this book out dozens of times. I will be recommending this to all of my friends!

Best baby food book out there.

Admittedly, I’m not the cook or the baby food maker in our house, my wife is, and she raves about this book. We purchased a couple of other books at the same time and returned all of them since this is the only book we use and need. You won’t be disappointed.

So far I love this book–it is exactly what I was looking for. The recipes for 4-6 months are simple but that is to be expected. The only thing I would really change is that I wish she was a little more specific sometimes. For example, she’ll write bring ____ to a boil and add enough liquid until it is the right consistency for your baby…it would be nice to know a starting point though! I like all the information and recipe ideas in here though! For me it is easier to have it all in a book than having to look things up on the web.

Really good book on what foods can be fed at what age, how to prepare fruits, vegetables and meats, how to spice up the food, food safety and storage, etc. I like how there are notes about how certain foods enhance each other, i.e. apples with chicken for maximum iron absorption. I also how it covers the topics on problems that may arise with starting solids such as constipation and food allergies. Recipes are easy to make. My 9 month old started solids since 6 months and she has eaten everything so far!

MUST Have! Baby Food Bible!

 on October 30, 2015
By Caitlin E
BEST purchase I made for my little guy. I knew I wanted to make all of his baby food since it seemed like the healthiest option for us. This was like my baby food bible. Learned so much about how to offer him solids the first time. Skipped cereal for lack of natural nutrients and gave hime sweet potato first pureed and mixed with lots of breastmilk. The recipes for all of the baby food combos were priceless. I ended up making all of his baby food – he never once had gerber and pouches just on occasion (i even made my own pouches). This book is a must. If you are on the fence about making your baby’s food, I can promise you if you make large batches at once you will only be “cooking” for it max once a week. I would just make multiple things at once in large batches and freeze. So easy! Buy this book! I buy it for all of my pregnant friends!

Invaluable Information on Baby Feeding

 on September 1, 2015
By ELEMama
After being disappointed with several other baby food cookbooks that had great pictures, but not a lot of useable recipes or great information, I ordered The Wholesome Baby Food Guide on a whim, and hit the jackpot. This book offers no pictures, but has a wealth of information about baby nutrition, feeding schedules based on age, recipes for everything from purees to finger foods, and more. There is also a free website that coordinates with this book if you want an idea of what type of recipes you will find inside. The information about how to cook, what to cook, how much little ones need, what to buy organic, what has the most/least pesticides, when to introduce certain foods, food allergies to watch for, signs of adverse reactions to food, etc were invaluable. Highly recommend to anyone who is planning to make homemade baby food!

Best way to feed baby

 on March 25, 2014
By Lindsay M Sipos
I am so happy with this book and the concept of Baby led weaning. I have recommended this book to all my friends who are having children. I give it as baby shower gifts as well. It made feeding our daughter and soon our new son. I am a full time working mom(i’m an engineer) and I found it very easy to keep up with making home made baby food over the store bought stuff. 1 hour a week allowed me to feed our daughter the healthest things possible. We try and stay with the organic, NON-GMO foods. I love the fact that my 2 year old will eat EVERYTHING and I really think Baby Led Weaning has helped foster that. Her go to snacks are veggies and the amount of blueberries we go thru is crazy. This book showed me when to introduce fun spices and the recipes were great cause i can make them for the entire family. Our favorite was the sweat potato risotto. This is a must have for any new mom.

another useful book in baby food

Not only provides recipes but a variety of cooking methods for each recipe. And each recipe provides information if it can be made ahead of time and if it is freezer friendly or not. While providing information in choosing what type of food for baby food making. Also adding a basic fundamentals in baby food making like for instance how long to store baby food, what myths and fact in baby food, nutritional information, what to introduce at the various stages, forbidden foods an potential allergies, food safety, techniques and so much more.

Easy to follow. Great,simple recipes.

I’m the kind of person who likes to have a solid cook book in my hand when I’m in the kitchen when I’m following recipes, and I also don’t have a smart phone, so that’s why I bought this book instead of visiting the website. I’m about to start my son on solids and I’ve been studying this book to prepareme. It’s a very good, easy to follow book, and the recipes seem simple but delicious. I usually buy my books used so I don’t have to pay full price but I am very happy I bought this book. I highly recommend it to any parent about to embark on the homemade baby food journey.

Great Book easy Recipes that my baby and family loves!

 on September 4, 2013

Everytime I am in the grocery store I have this book in hand. I am a working mom with a goal to make all my homemade baby food. My baby is now 10 months old and because of this book I have been successful. It sounds simple enough to make homemade baby food, just puree and go. However there were so many other questions I had, what age can I feed my baby what, what can be frozen, and what spices can I incorporate, how long is the pureed food good for? This book helped answer them all! Since my baby is in daycare making sure the food could be frozen and transported easily was my top concern. Additionally I didn’t really think about using spices until I read this book. The recipes I find in this book are unique and help me make combinations to keep food interesting for my baby (would have never combined mango, butternut squash and peaches on my own). This book also exceeded my expectations as there are family recipes in the back that my husband and I love! The haddock recipe is a new favorite in my house. Also I find myself cooking new things for the whole family that I have never made before, like quinoa. Prior to the baby we were mostly a takeout family and now I find myself excited every time a new season hits and I can try some new recipes from this book (pumpkin is next on my list!). I have made almost every recipe in this book and only one has failed me (crockpot oatmeal, it turned into a hardened blackened mess. I suspect either my crockpot was too large or that I accidently put the temperatre on high instead of low, it wouldn’t be the first time I made that mistake). I just bought another copy of this book to give to my friend at her baby shower.
