Giveaway: Best Homemade Baby Food on the Planet
Awhile ago now we reviewed The Happy Baby book and one lucky reader won a copy. With this baby I am so pleased to giveaway The Best Homemade Baby Food on the Planet. Happy Baby was great, but as you might know that is a whole-approach book. It talks about cleaners, clothing, detergents, etc. The Best Homemade Baby Food book is all about what it says: food. Period.
Here's what I love about this book: it is so approachable and easy to follow. The chapters are "months." So, for example, in month 7 all of these great recipes are listed that are appropriate and suggested for the baby. It makes it really easy to go to in a jiffy. Also, the recipes are make-sense recipes. Now I have that Williams-Sonoma Cooking for Baby. Love it....I rarely use it. Because with a toddler running around I am not spending money on lamb, stocking amaranth, or making The Bug parfait. In an ideal world I would be one of those moms but, alas, we are not perfect here at our house. All of the recipes in this book can be done with regular old refrigerator and pantry items.
Ok, that said, there are certainly some recipes in this book that are pretty evident. Like bananas...mash them and serve them. Not sure you need a recipe for that. But I think these are no brainers because I am on number 2 and remember what I fed number 1. I do appreciate the reminder that such foods are suggested and appropriate for babies of a certain age.
Other great things about the book are the layout (I love the spreads, photos, and indexes!), the features on how to read your baby's hunger signs, mealtime successes, tips and tools, nutrition information and more. Of course, this is written by a nurse so it figures it will be informative.
One lucky winner can win a copy of this book: FOR FREE. We're making this giveaway about me. (My blog, I can do that it appears!) Tell me your child's favorite food. I need ideas on what to feed The Bug. So, you have 1 week to post a comment telling me what your child loves to eat. If you have a newborn, tell me what you loved to eat as a kid. Winner will be selected at random from all entries on Tuesday, July 31st. Happy eating and messes!
