Best Food for Your Baby & Toddler Book Review & Giveaway (CLOSED)

Baby Brandon's Adventures
Holiday Gift Guide presents...
Great Expectations: Best Food for Your Baby & Toddler
From First Foods to Meals Your Child Will Love



Description:
The definitive guide to infant and toddler feeding—from first foods to meals your child will love To ensure that baby gets the best, most wholesome, and natural food possible, go homemade! The newest entry in the acclaimed Great Expectations series focuses on easy preparation of nutritious baby and toddler meals at home—from the first finger-foods to more than 130 delicious kid-tested recipes that will lay the foundation for a lifetime of healthy eating.

The book teaches parents how to select the right food, set up a pantry (with a guide to key kitchen equipment), establish smart eating routines, and introduce a wide variety of tastes and textures. It also explores today’s most pressing nutrition issues: Should you buy only organic food? Is it healthy to restrict a toddler's calorie intake? Is a vegetarian diet good for a very young child? Additional resources include information on breastfeeding and food allergies, as well as a comprehensive listing of whole foods companies and products that make healthy eating faster and easier.

My Review:
After reading this book and following Jeannette Bessinger's recipes and recommendations, I find it has been very helpful. The information on nutrition are very well put together and I have been using it as a guide for creating healthy food for our little Brandon. This guide focuses on feeding children at every stage from birth to 3 years. It will show you how prepare home cooking as easy as possible. It has also given me ideas for making great meals for the whole family. Brandon had always been a good eater, but only occasionally he does get picky. He eats what we eat, which is great.

As a treat, I love making homemade gluten-free macaroni and cheese - comfort food to the max. Of course now I have to make it dairy free too for my little man!
