A child's first six years can be an exciting culinary journey which takes him or her from mashed banana, through home-made pizza, to their first mild curry. By introducing our children to a wide variety of tastes from an early age, we can help them to grow into a lifelong habit of intelligent eating. By making the dishes ourselves, we can give them foods that we know are nutritionally balanced in every way. More than a cookbook, this indispensable kitchen companion not only offers delicious recipes for every day of the year, but also contains a wealth of information on child nutrition--from weaning and introducing solids to packing lunches and serving up party foods for older children. It emphasizes an easy approach to food preparation, with no complicated measurements or methods. Most important of all, there's a wide variety of recipes for every stage of childhood development, complete with 50 "first food" recipes, 7-day meal planners, and sound snack ideas. Practical tips accompany the dishes, including methods for promoting healthy eating habits that support brain development and a strong immune system. The emphasis is on practical parenting throughout - the recipes are quick and easy to make (no complicated measurements or methods), and are guaranteed to give enjoyment to your growing family. For parents concerned about kids' allergies, there is a two-page spread on managing allergies and intolerances (wheat, gluten, milk, soy, peanuts and additives), and every recipe has a symbol key to show which allergens (if any) are present. The Introduction offers advice on food combining, essential nutrients, weaning and feeding problems.
