This book is a must have for any parent that wants to get their baby or toddler off to a great nutritional start. Starting with my baby's very first bite of solid food I have followed it and I couldn't be happier. He is 13 months now and he has almost never been sick. He eats everything we give him and is the least picky baby I've ever known. No matter how little cooking experience someone has, with this book they would be able to feed their baby super healthy, wholesome homemade food with ease. I also bought this book for my sister who can't even boil water and now her freezer is chock full of homemade baby food. Half of the veggies she makes for him she had never even heard of before :) I don't know what I would do without this book. I open it at least 10 times a day and half of those times it's not even because I'm trying to make something for my baby. There is such great nutritional info inside plus it is just packed with general cooking tips. I use it almost as much to cook for my husband and I as I do for the baby.
