Like all parents, you've always wanted the best for your baby, and the area of baby food is one that you can control to give your child a healthy head-start in life. This practical manual is filled with mom and baby friendly advice on how to choose organic, healthful foods (and a chapter on why you should) along with an extensive recipe collection for baby food from four months to four years. Allaying fears of time-consuming labor and exhorbitant prices for natural ingredients, The Petit Appetit Cookbook offers a comforting hand to guide you through feeding your baby or toddler. All recipes come with nutrition facts, and contain a variety of vegan, gluten/lactose/wheat/sugar/egg/cooking-free recipes for babies with intolerances, allergies or for parents who live a vegetarian/vegan lifestyle. Blue print on cream-colored paper makes this a pleasure to look at as well as read. 268 pages with index, softcover.
