Review quote

"Making your own delicious and nutritious baby food could not be easier as this lovely book explains. I can't think of a better or more enjoyable way to start a baby on a lifetime of happy and healthy eating exploration than to mash and puree your way through every one of these recipes. You will want to eat these foods too!"

-Marion Nestle, Ph.D., Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies,

and Public Health at New YorkUniversity, and author of What to Eat "This well-written and highly attractive book surpasses the traditional expert advice on the nutritional content and preparation of healthy foods by invoking a developmental approach to infant nutrition. The reader will not only learn how simple it is to make their baby's meals at home, but also understand the developmental and physiological rationales for healthy food choices. This is anticipatory guidance on infant nutrition at its best!"

-Paul H. Dworkin, M.D., Professor and Chair of Pediatrics at the

University of ConnecticutSchool of Medicine and

Physician-in-Chief of the Connecticut Children's MedicalCenter "As the obesity epidemic spreads across the world and parents become more concerned than ever with what to put in their children's mouths, The Best Homemade Baby Food on the Planet takes a lot of the guesswork and frustration out of this important parenting task. It is a must-have for parents and grandparents alike."

-Victoria McEvoy, M.D., Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at HarvardMedicalSchool and Medical Director and

Chief of Pediatrics at Massachusetts General West Medical Group
