The Best Homemade Baby Food on the Planet Book Review and Giveaway

I can't believe that my little daughter is going to be one month old tomorrow! She is getting so big! It is hard to believe that in about five months, she will be big enough to start eating baby food.

With my last child, I tried to make a good share of my son's baby food myself, but I was really just winging it. I didn't really know what I was doing. That is why I am so excited to have "The Best Homemade Baby Food on the Planet" book now.





The first baby food book to be authored by a Registered Dietitian (Tina Ruggiero) and a Registered Nurse (Karin Knight), the book provides readers with more than 200 baby food recipes that suit every age – from six to 23 months – along with a month-by-month feeding guide, insight about infant nutrition, allergies and more! Inside readers will find:

· Recipes from baby’s first purees to meals for active toddlers;

· Beautiful full-color photographs;

· An easy-to-spot snowflake symbol next to recipes which can be frozen;

· The latest information about infant nutrition, oral care, intolerances and optimal development; and

· A fun recipe evaluation chart, so parents can rate what meals their little one likes best.

My number one favorite thing about this book is that it is filled with recipes that take 10 minutes or less to prepare! I am a super busy mom, but I want the absolute best for my children. I want to know exactly what is going into their body, and I want it to be super nutritious! "The Best Homemade Baby Food on the Planet" is awesome at providing easy to make, fast recipes of healthy, nourishing foods. Not only can you make these meals fast, but did you know that preparing baby food at home costs pennies compared to purchasing ready-made baby food? And, it is a lot cheaper compared to buying organic baby food, which is my choice, because I don't want all the icky chemicals, preservatives, etc. in my little one's food.

This book also includes informative sidebars that address feeding challenges, food safety and even traveling with baby. Best of all, each recipe features a nutrient analysis, serving size suggestions and recommended preparation methods - assuring parents baby receives the nutrition they need without any of the additives found in most store bought baby food.

As you have just read, I think this book is so awesome! I really appreciate all the unique touches that make this book special and a must-have for parents! My one critique on the book is that the recipes are all made to fit baby or toddler servings, and some of these recipes I would like to make for the whole family. That would mean I have to refigure all the correct measurements, and it would take a lot more work that I have for creating a fast meal. Overall, though, this book is great and fits my goal of living a healthy and natural life and sharing it with all of you!

You can buy this book from several online retailers such as: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Borders and more.

One of our readers is going to have the blessing of receiving this book for free!

  88. Follower. My niece is pregnant and is a very "green" type, but she does not love to cook. I think making food for her and getting her in the kitchen for some hands on learning would be great for her and the baby!
