But it has my thinking, "I just gotta find some good twists and "real" recipes out there for babies!" Don't get me wrong. I do love the basic, simply purees of whole fruits and veggies. But I also want to find ways to sneak in some additional flavors that aren't typically found in kid cuisine. Better to start early than late, right? That's my theory anyway (especially now that I have a picky 3yo eater in our household!).
So here are a couple books out there that I found helpful on this topic:
"Cooking for Baby" - ($19.95) We've got this book at our house now, but I have yet to delve into it...got it after the firstborn and before the second's arrival. Has some really interesting-looking recipes, including "silken tofu & peach puree," & "edamame & yogurt puree."
"Super Baby Food" ($13.57 on Amazon) - This one's a winner at our house. Goes over all the basics from cooking plain vegetables & fruits, at what age you should introduce them, and specific cooking directions from baking to steaming and more!
"Love in Spoonfulls" ($19.95) - From Parents magazine...still need to try this one out! Anyone tried any of these recipes and recommend the book? Let us know!!
And for the older kids (toddlers, preschoolers & up), there's always "Deceptively Delicious," a.k.a, "Good ways to sneak in some good foods for those picky eaters of yours!"
Huge bonus? Get a used copy for just $0.40 (plus shipping) on Amazon.com right now!!!
