Babycookbook 315

Wondering how to introduce your baby to solid foods by sharing with her the same food, at the same time and the same table as you? Authors Gill Rapley and Tracey Murkett now present their second title “The Baby-Led Weaning Cookbook” (The Experiment, April 2011; $18.95), and offer tons of simple recipes for family meals that also are perfect for babies 6 months and older. The book features 130 easy and nutritious recipes that help babies learn to eat (and love!) a variety of solid foods. And the recipes are tasty for Mom and Dad, too. There’s Chicken Stir-Fry With Noodles, Weeknight Chili, Spanish Apple Cake and more. The first five chapters explore the basics of weaning, food storage and safety, ingredients to avoid and how to watch for food allergies.
