    I have twin 2 year olds who would very easily live off fish fingers and tomato sauce if I let them, so when I had the chance to review Whole Food Baby I was very excited.
    I wasn’t left disappointed as I found the recipes very easy to follow and they all could be prepared In very little time, which is a bonus for me having twins.
    My little boy and girl both enjoyed trying new things and whilst not everything was a hit we have now got a lot more healthy variety into our meal times.
    My favourite thing about this recipie book is that the ingredients are easy to get hold of and not to expensive whereas other books iv used iv found they are asking you to buy quite unique and expensive ingredients.
    We have used quite a few recipes as a family now and would recommend to anyone wanting to get a healthy variety into their little ones diet then give this recipie book a try.

    My daughter Daisy is nearly 12 months old and we started weaning at around 6 months. I was never big on cooking before she came along. I’m still no Nigella Lawson but she seems to like my food! I think the most important thing when weaning is providing a variety of healthy food. The Whole Food Baby book is great because it’s full of nutritional recipes. I like the fact that it’s not all about spending hours cooking and most of the pages provide simple ideas for finger food when you are short on time. The book is well laid out starting with the introduction of food all the way through the first four years of eating. Daisy prefers to feed herself these days and won’t always eat purées (little miss independent like her Mother!). I found the finger foods very useful and most of them can be made in bulk. The carrot fritters went down well and the great thing is that they freeze for 3 months! There are also simple ideas like vegetables with dips. Great for a quick fix! My favourite bit of the book is the index. You can search the key nutritional benefits of each recipe. There are also little icons next to each recipe as you go through the book so you can see their nutritional value. Daisy had a cold the other week so I made her sweet potato and curry purée as its indexed as vitamin rich. It’s also good for bone growth! She loved it and Daddy and I had a more adult version of the dish too. That’s the great thing about these recipes, they can be adapted to suit the whole family. I would definitely recommend this book for new parents and my only wish is that we found it sooner. If you have a toddler or older child it’s still a very useful purchase. There are so many yummy recipes it will keep you going for a long time!

    I have a little girl who is 9 and a half months old. I have been cooking her finger foods but they’ve never really gone down too well! The Whole Food Baby book gives loads of great recipes and my little girl is starting to enjoy finger foods more now I’ve made some of these. The recipes are simple to follow and the food in it looks lovely. I want to eat some of the food! Each recipe shows the nutritional value which is really helpful. I can’t wait to try some more of the recipes and I love that I will be able to use the book for a few more years. I’d highly recommend this book.
