Publication Date: 1 March 2005
Why feed your baby food from a jar when you can quickly and easily make fresh, wholesome meals that give little mouths something to smile about? In "The Petit Appetit Cookbook", professional cook and mother Lisa Barnes offers a healthy alternative to buying commercially processed, preservative-filled foods to help you create delicious menus, nurture adventurous palates, and begin a lifetime of positive eating habits for your children. From birth to age four are a child's most crucial years for nutritional and dietary development - and now you can make sure your little one's early culinary experiences are delightful and nourishing, with recipes from fresh butternut squash for your baby, to chicken kebobs for your toddler, to multigrain scones for every petit appetit. The book includes: 150+ easy, fast, child-tested recipes for ages 4 months to 4 years; mealtime solutions for even the most discriminating eaters; how to create a single meal the entire family will share and enjoy; how and when to introduce solids to baby's diet; and, how to recognize signs of food allergies and intolerances.
