One of my favorite baby cookbooks advocating ogranic and natural ingredients. It contains helpful guides for rainbow eating and seasonal produce. The book also lists ingredients to keep in the pantry and equipment needed for cooking. The recipes are designed as spring, summer, fall, winter, and year-round depending upon the ingredients. Sidebars with information about nutrients accompany each recipe.

The book is divided into three sections by age group: 6 to 9 months, 8 to 12 months, and 12 months and older, which includes toddlers, preschoolers, and adults. And the recipes for 12 months and up look so good that I am looking forward to making them as family meals. Each recipe also includes a number of servings produced but does not exactly define the size of the serving.

The one negatives is that the authors are against freezing primarily because the food does lose nutritional value and doesn't taste as good. Although this is true, many many mothers don't have the luxury of staying home and being able to cook fresh food for their babies every day. So, not having information about freezing and preserving makes this cookbook less helpful than many others.
