Inspired by the Italian way of feeding young children—encouraging them to taste and to try all kinds of ingredients as soon as they are appropriate—this collection compiled by the Silver Spoon and editor Amanda Grant offers recipes and nutritional guidance to parents who want to feed their children as much freshly made food as possible.
Thorough coverage of kitchen set up and ingredient selection is followed by a chapter on the weaning process. The recipes themselves are divided by age groups, and include a separate section on seasonal produce and how to prepare it as simply as possible for young eaters. Whether baby will recognize that creamy pea, lettuce, leek and cream cheese soup is out of the ordinary is hard to say. But parents won't find these sorts of recipes elsewhere.
