Nurturing your child's health and love of food

All too often baby and toddler food books are boring, bland and contain the same old recipes. Parents of babies and toddlers need the best information on what to feed their child as he or she grows up, but up until now this has been far from easy to obtain in an simple, contemporary format with beautiful design and photography - as well as delicious recipes and nutritional information.

Now comes Baby & Toddler Food Cookbook by Louise Fulton Keats. Having grown up in the kitchen of the iconic Margaret Fulton (Louise is Margaret's grand-daughter) Louise Fulton-Keats knows about good food, and food that is good for you. Now a mother and a qualified childhood nutritionist, Louise has taken her lifetime love of cooking and created a beautiful book that teaches parents everything they need to know about feeding their baby or toddler delicious, healthy food that is easy to make and won't have time poor parents slaving away in the kitchen for hours.

This is a comprehensive and informative guide on what to feed your baby once they are ready to progress to solids. Louise covers a wide range of topics including food allergies, organic ingredients, variety of foods, cooking methods, freezing and storing and what foods should be avoided. There is also a meal planner as well as a collection of healthy, balanced recipes that are easy to prepare. All recipes come with variations plus handy hints and tips. Recipes are divided into breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack and sweet treats so all mealtimes are covered. This is the ideal book for new parents who want guidance, as well as parents who want a variety of healthy meal options for their children.

Chapters include Feeding your child, Getting Started, First foods (4-6 months), More tastes and textures (6-9 months), A well-rounded diet (10-12 months), Feeding toddlers, and Family Meals. Recipes include Sweet potato and broccoli puree, Apricot and apple yoghurt, and Pasta stars with creamy chicken bolognese and taste so good you'll want them yourself!

      I received this book as a gift and it has become an installation on the kitchen counter. We use it a few times a week to break out of the rut of the five things we constantly rotate. Most cookbooks are confusing - these are easy to follow and they taste great. thank you!!

            This book has become my absolute bible for feednig my 7 month old son and my three year old daughter. We had developed some pretty bad food habits in my house with my daughter becoming so fussy. But all the useful advice in this book has got us back on track and both my children are now eating such a great range of healthy foods. Love it love it!

                This is a really informative book for mums needing inspiration to cook for their baby and toddler. Lots of variety in the recipes and easy to follow and understand. As a second time mum I even found it useful.
