I was recently contacted about checking out the site: Real Food Moms – a site for moms that gives tips on how to feed your kids real food and improve your life. The site is great – filled with lots of ideas, resources and inspiration.
The founders of the site have written a book called:
Best Food for Your Baby & Toddler: from first foods to meals your child will love.
If you are able, making your child’s baby food is a great way to make sure they are getting introduced to all different fruit and veggies, spices and real food. I found that when I made Anna’s food, I could make sure she wasn’t eating preservatives and things that she didn’t need to be eating, especially at such a young age.
I often turned to different books for ideas, and information about the right times to feed her different foods and combinations I should try with her. This book is a great resource for all mom’s – whether you plan to make all of your baby’s food or just a few things.
I really liked how it started with information about breastfeeding and different formulas. Then it went into discussing when and how to introduce real foods.
The book does a good job of covering strategies for teaching kids about eating too. This is something that most moms need a little information on because we often don’t know what to do when a child refuses to eat something and how to handle it.
I like how the book has many easy to read and understand tables throughout it. There are clear instructions for how to reheat things and easy-to-read- charts and timelines for quick reference.
Overall, I thought this book was full of great info and would be an asset to any baby book collection! It would make a great book to give at a shower or pick up if you are stuck with ideas of what/how to start feeding your baby.
