The Baby Bistro Cookbook by Joohee Muromcew
Yesterday we posted Part 1 of Brenda Nixon’s essay “Feeding Finicky Toddlers” from her book, The Birth to Five Book.
Below is part II of the essay in which Brenda Nixon recommends The Baby Bistro Cookbook.
The Baby Bistro Cookbook by Joohee Muromcew advises [child caregivers] not to cook a separate meal for their tot; rather give him a “dumbed down” version – for instance, a less spicy one – of what the parents are eating. Packed with 150 kid-tested recipes, The Baby Bistro Cookbook offers directions for preparing an entire week’s supply of dishes and pediatrician-approved information on adapting recipes to suit [the] tot’s age and tastes.
Most baby and toddler cookbooks contain outdated nutritional advice, lack menus for kids with special dietary needs, or offer unpalatable dishes that hold little appeal for your child. Joohee Muromcew was inspired to change those dismal options when she began to cook for her son. Armed with her expert culinary skills and her desire to create healthy, delicious foods with a sophisticated flair, she developed a cookbook that is without equal.
Teaching children at an early age to appreciate and enjoy the same fresh, delicious meals you find so delectable is easy. Once you experience the simple pleasures of knowing that your young one is eating happily and healthfully, you'll never want to touch, or feed a baby, another jar of bland baby food again!
