There is growing recognition that baby-led feeding is the healthiest way for children to develop a love of good food. Self-feeding allows babies to use their natural abilities to explore taste, texture, colour and smell. It encourages independence and confidence by allowing them to experiment with foods at their own pace and helps to develop hand-eye coordination and chewing. It also helps babies learn how to self-regulate the amount they eat, something which can be lost when they are spoon-fed. In this beautifully photographed book, Aileen Cox Blundell provides over 150 nutritious recipes free from refined sugar and salt, aimed at starting your child on a life-long food adventure. Every recipe has been developed with health and nutrition in mind and will appeal to the whole family, making mealtimes a pleasure rather than a chore. Wave goodbye to weekend's lost to pureeing and freezing food for your baby! The recipes in this book work for the whole family, making mealtimes a pleasure rather than a chore.
They include Three-Ingredient Banana Pancakes, Sweet Potato Super Muffins, Tuna and Quinoa Baby Bites, Avocado Pasta, Chicken Korma Pies, Buddah Bowls and treats like Frozen Yogurt Buttons and Aileen's healthy version of a Wibbly Wobbly Wonder!
