Book Recommendation: Super Baby Food

Any links to Amazon are affiliate links.

I have never read this book, but have heard great, great things from many different people. The book covers food from birth to three years old.

Most parents are so worried about food with our children. We often worry if they are getting enough food. Here is a link to the website (and be prepared–it is hideous):

I have also heard this is a good resource for those who bottle feed their babies.

    I’ve read super baby food, I just started solids last week. I have not started to make my own baby food yet, we’re still doing cereal. But it is a GREAT book. Even if you choose not to make you’re own baby food it is FULL of great, easy to read/understand, practical information. It’s kinda quirky but I think that is part of the charm! I’m at you’re blog via Maya’ If you want to make your own baby food, or just find out more about infant/baby nutrition this book is amazing. A good confidence booster for insecure moms!

    I have read through a good portion of Super Baby Food and it has a lot of good information. I did find it a bit overwhelming, personally, and at times that the author was a bit condescending towards those who do not use organic foods. For my family, it simply does not fit in our budget.I thought I would pass this along because it has been so helpful to me and a handful of other moms I know. There is a website… and it is full of wonderful advice on making and storing your own babyfood as well as info on food allergies, spices, etc. It is very well organized and easy to navigate through and they recognize that using organic foods might not be an option for everyone. There are recipes that are clear and easy to follow for Stage 1 and 2 baby foods. I hope I’m not interfering with my suggestion of this web site…it has just been SO helpful to me.Thanks, Blair

    Blair, thanks to you too! That is good to be aware of when reading it. A good friend of mine and I were just talking yesterday about how it is too bad that organic foods are so expensive. My family is lucky enough to have a garden, but we still buy produce in the winter from the store, and no, it isn’t organic. I am also lucky to have a grandfather who raises chickens, so we get farm-fresh eggs for free. Thanks for the website. I have heard really good things about that site also. I will do a post on it so everyone can see the link. Never hesitate to add your own thoughts–there are so many options and viewpoints out there!
