Review of Top 100 Baby Purees

Weekly Trip to the Library for Nannies and Au Pairs

Last Sunday we recommended the Beaba Babycook Baby Food Maker and tomorrow we will discuss The First Years Babypro All In One Baby Food Maker. A great book to reference when making baby food is, Top 100 Baby Purees: 100 Quick and Easy Meals for a Healthy and Happy Baby by Annabell Karmel.

The author, Annabel Karmel, is the mother of three children, a bestselling author of books on nutrition and cooking for babies and toddlers, and a familiar face on British television. Annabel has appeared on many American TV programs, including the Today show and The Early Show.

Top 100 Baby Purees By Annabell Karmel

This book has beautiful photographs and the recipes are user-friendly. She clearly shows the ingredients and the time it will take to make the recipe. The baby puree book, in particular, describes appropriate ages for particular foods.

The book explains that making your own baby food is not only more economical than buying commercial brands, it also assures that the child consumes only the freshest, top-quality ingredients.

From first tastes and weaning, right through to meals for older babies, all the recipes are suitable for children aged six months and older. And with all these fruit and vegetable favorites, and innovative fish, meat, and chicken purees, the dishes are so tasty you will want to eat them yourself!

In addition to easy and delicious recipes, Top 100 Baby Purees also includes information on: weaning a baby and transitioning to solid foods, food allergies, time-saving food preparation tips, freezing and reheating your homemade baby food, and tricks on finding the hidden nutrition in everyday foods.

The book does not stress the importance of organic foods and it's not written for vegetarian families.

Stop by next Saturday for another Weekly Trip to the Library.
