The book, already a trusted resource when it comes to establishing a child’s preferences for healthy, nourishing foods, owes a lot of its success to the fact that health and diet, especially when caring for one’s children, is not a passing trend among parents and caregivers, and are values shared across cultures.
Childhood obesity is now a worldwide pandemic, and as author Tina Ruggiero points out, “Parents are poised to be change agents, and The Best Homemade Baby Food on the Planet is the ideal tool by which to empower them.”
Parents and caregivers will learn:
• How to “prioritize their produce,” saving money when selecting organic fruit and vegetables.
• How to prepare meals in 10 minutes or less and use common pantry staples.
• What baby should eat and when, ensuring growth needs are met.
• How to establish preferences for vegetables, fruit and other “super foods”.
• Tricks to avoid the picky eater problem!
• Money saving tips for using over ripe produce, batch cooking and freezing.
• Creative suggestions for making mealtime a positive, fun dining experience for all involved.
What people are saying about The Best Homemade Baby Food on the Planet:
“Making your own delicious and nutritious baby food could not be easier as this lovely book explains. I can’t think of a better or more enjoyable way to start a baby on a lifetime of happy and healthy eating exploration than to mash and purée your way through every one of these recipes. You will want to eat these foods too!” - Marion Nestle, Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies and Public Health at New York University, author of What to Eat
