Simple Recipes for a Wholesome Start

Nothing compares with making your own baby food: It's fresh and unprocessed, you choose what goes into it, and it is a delicious way to introduce your child to a world of flavors. In Real Baby Food, Jenna Helwig helps you fit this loving act into a busy day's routine by making the process easy, fast, and flexible with 100 meals to begin a lifetime of healthy eating-from the moment your baby takes her first bite of solid food through her toddler years when she's happily ensconced in a booster seat at the family table.

Real Baby Food is your guide to these important first years of eating. Find the building blocks of starting your child on solid foods, how to recognize food allergies, and easy ways to cook in bulk. Recipes progress from single-ingredient purees to multi-flavor blends like Salmon, Kale, and Sweet Potato Smash; then move on to finger foods-Turkey Meatloaf Bites, Maple Graham Animals-and finally toddler meals and snacks. Most can be made ahead and frozen, many are easily adapted for grown-up tastes, and allinclude full nutritional information.
JENNA HELWIG is the food editor for Parents magazine, as well as a freelance writer, culinary instructor, and personal chef. She also founded Rosaberry, a culinary services company devoted to helping families eat better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gift for first time Mommy I gave this as a Christmas gift as my grandson has just started on purées. His momma and dad told me how much they love the book, the info, the chart for the fridge and how very practical and easy to follow the recipes are. It’s a hit! Highly recommended.
