Re: which babyfood recipe book???

I just got the Super Baby Food Book by Ruth Yaron. I really like it. Its like an encyclopedia She has included a section with basically every fruit and vegetable you can think of with a description of what nutrients they have and when they can be introduced. Also a whole section of vitamins and minerals and their sources and recommended daily allowances.

This book was recommended to me by my Bradley teacher and so far, Ithink its great. I will warn you, when I went to buy it off of Amazon, there were some reviews that were pretty bad and if I didn't TOTALLY trust my bradley teacher, I might not have bought it for that. The main complaint I think was she has a whole section on nuts and nut milks and people didn't like that because of nut allergies. But she says pretty clearly in the intro and several other places that you should always check with your ped before doing anything, etc so...also, it is a huge book and if you just wanted recipes, this wouldn't be the bookto get...HTH

Re: which babyfood recipe book???

I loved the site http://www.wholesomebabyfood.com/

It gives the basics, plus some more involved recipes. I checked a few baby food books out of the library, but the recipes were more complex than what I normally made for dinner. I felt like once we got through the basic purees (taking it slow) my babies were starting finger foods and they ate from the table what they could.

I also loved Super baby Food. I think there is a tremendous amount of information in it. I found that it was as benificial to me and my eating habits as it was to my son's diet. I still use a lot of the projects in the back when me and the kids are bored...

www.wholesomebabyfood.com is awesome if you don't mind sitting at the computer to read it

For something tangible I also recommend the 'Super Baby Food' book!

I agree with the other replies about www.wholesomebabyfood.com. I never tred the book Super Baby Food. I liked the So easy Baby Food Kit (found at target, Babies r Us and online) which has basic puree recipes and detailed instructions. The kit comes with an instructional DVD and two baby food freezer trays with lids. The book has places on each page for you to write info regarding babies experience with that food. For more complex recipes I really enjoyed, and so did DS, First Meals by Annabel Karmel. Have fun with all the new foods.
