I would probably not buy this book again. The recipes are pretty uninspiring though the titles are great. The book also has a few recipes that call for juice- seriously?! Why the added sugar? The one nice thing is that it includes nutritional information for all the recipes so it's nice to have as a cross reference.

This book is great for starting on the road to homemade baby food! It has wonderful recipes for slightly older babies (those who can eat mixed foods) and is full of good hints and tricks. However, keeping it from getting a full five stars is that it has inaccurate feeding guidelines. It is well known that an infant should start on vegetables before fruits, and is recommended by doctors and experienced parents to start them on green vegetables before any other vegetables, as they are the least sw...more

A perfect mixture of information and recipes, The Best Homemade Baby Food on the Planet by Karin Knight and Tina Ruggiero was a joy to read.

I could not wait to look through the book, and The Best Homemade Baby Food on the Planet did not disappoint! Whenever I thought of homemade baby food before, it seemed so time consuming and complicated. This book did a great job convincing me that it is actually not as difficult as it sounds. It provides detailed guidelines on preparing baby food, storing a...more

This book is fantastic! Not only does it have a ton of recipes, but it's organized so nicely by age and foods that are age appropriate for baby. In the back is a rating sheet for each recipe so you can mark if baby liked it, and whether you would want to make it again. There's tons of other health information about organics vs. non, teething, vitamins, and how to incorporate breast milk into recipes if you'd like to as well. There are so many different recipes, utilizing so many different foods...more

A good guide, but nothing groundbreaking. I used it for a few ideas, that's about it. I disliked that the author presented info as if it was set in stone, like what month you should introduce foods. Sure you should wait on some, but it's not going to matter if your baby eats broccoli a couple weeks before the author okays it. She is also downright wrong about juice. Several different healthcare sources have advised me to hold off on juice until my baby is much older than what this author recomme...more

I love this book. I knew I wanted to make my baby's food but honestly the idea of actually doing it was a bit overwhelming. That's when I headed to the book store and found this great book. This book has so much useful information along with great recipes (with pictures). I love how it breaks down recommended foods for different ages in months. I also love that it is written by two licensed professionals, something that you don't always get on-line. Now that my husband and I are more proficient...more

This book was a gift from my dear friend Becky. Amazing book that I know will be my "go-to" for all baby recipes! I have been discouraged by the gross commercial baby food products and this book is the perfect remedy! A must read for all parents (and expectant parents) of infants and toddlers.

****re-read during the spring /summer 2012. Again, a fabulous book. The best baby food book on the market!
Josette
This was exactly the easy resource I needed. Sure, some no-brainer-why-didn't-I-think-of-that recipes in there, but they were "aha!" moments for me realizing I had more food fun options already in my fridge than I realized. It made the process of feeding my babe so much less overwhelming than I made it to be (ya, could be just my issue). I just want the kid to eat...and eat healthy....

Best baby food book out there.
Jenny
This had some good recipes. Although,the doctor said not to give my 9 month old dairy until she is a year old. That babies have a hard time with the protien in dairy. So perhaps this would be a good cook book for older childern and toddlers.
Katelyn
I enjoyed flipping through to get some food combination ideas. But the recipes are usually for a couple of servings at a time. I think it would have been better (and more realistic) to provide recipes for batch making and storage.
Marie
Love this book! And I can't wait to try some of these recipes myself. They go from soimple recipes to more complex as children get older. And they let you know what will freeze well for later use.
Laura
Yes, baby recipes are usually "(1) cook, (2) puree, (3) serve." True. But I like that this cookbook includes recipes for the WHOLE family (when the time comes). Yay for family dinners!
Sheila
Wholesome recipes, easy to prepare and the book was organized wonderfully. I definitely recommend this parents, especially first time parents who want to make their own baby food.
Carol
Loved this book...a definite read for anyone wanting to make their own baby food. Has great information combined with great recipes that are categorized by age group.
Jen
This was ok, there are a few recipes I will try. Overall just slightly disappointed. The RealSmart baby food solution book is good as well.
Charli Rae
Love this book! It's a great one to have as a reference and to expand and do your own recipes!
Nathan Huff
Basically a cookbook for babies. One bonus is that it gives a list of foods at what age.
Amanda
Simple recipes - made in 10 minutes or less! Definitely one to come back to.
Amy
Love the tips and recipes in this one! So practical and easy recipes!
Robin
Recommends a lot of juice, avoids spices ... not impressed
Katie Casey
Love this one! HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO ALL NEW PARENTS!
Charlene Ng
Recipes are useful for busy working mums.
Caroline
