An inventive new program for preparing three months' worth of baby food in three one-hour blocks of time, with instructions for freezing, thawing, and effortlessly combining puree "building blocks" into tasty, nutritious meals.

As a food scientist and mother of three, Dr. Lisa Barrangou knew that homemade baby food made from whole, real foods, with no additives or fillers, was critical for young children. But how can modern parents possibly fit this chore into an already hectic schedule? The Amazing Make-Ahead Baby Food Book reveals Dr. Barrangou's unique system for preparing three months of baby food in three hours, allowing parents across the country to feed their babies efficiently without having to sacrifice health for convenience. With fun flavor combinations like Peachy Strawberry Salad, Coconutty Mango Lassi, Plum Gingered Broccoli Quinoa, and Purple Papaya Flax Yogurt, The Amazing Make-Ahead Baby Food Book will help babies cultivate an adventurous palette while providing a rainbow of nutrients.

In this amazing cookbook all dedicated to making yummy homemade baby food, Lisa Barrangou takes you on a step-by-step, chapter-by-chapter journey through what makes a good baby food that is healthy for your baby and even toddlers. When the perfect time is to start your child on more solid foods and how much is enough for your growing child.

I have always wanted to make my own wholesome, homemade baby food at home, but never had the opportunity or the knowledge. And now that my daughter is going into first grade, it is a little too late. However, I think most of these foods don't only suit baby needs, but they can also serve a toddler and children needs as well.

There are so many foods that you can puree into baby foods. Such as avocados, beans, kale and many more. I wouldn't have thought of most of it myself. But now that I have been introduced to this book, I think that I might start to get a bit more creative and make some yummy treats for my daughter.

I highly recommend this book to add to your collection.

I wish I'd had this book when my son was a baby. I made all of his baby food and spent a lot of time in the kitchen. I think he thought it was the whole house. LOL
