Yes, your baby can join in at family mealtimes—right from the start! Gill Rapley and Tracey Murkett are the creators of baby-led weaning (BLW), a commonsense way to introduce your baby to solid foods. There’s no need to struggle with purées and spoon-feeding! Instead, Baby can explore the same foods you enjoy—how they feel, smell, and taste; how to grasp them and chew them—all at his or her own pace. The Baby-Led Weaning Family Cookbook includes 99 all-new recipes, many suited for families of 4 or more. Plus, Rapley and Murkett review all the benefits of BLW: It’s convenient: The whole family eats the same meal—together. No one puts Baby in the corner! It helps Baby learn: BLW builds motor skills, coordination, and confidence. It promotes lifelong health: By teaching Baby to love a variety of foods and to gauge fullness, BLW helps prevent picky eating, and overeating, later on!

Written by a REAL mum for REAL mums! This beautifully illustrated book is chock full of delicious meals and snacks that are ideal for the entire family. The no fuss recipes are perfect for busy mums and can be made in record time. The book also contains a handy four week food guide for BLW beginners as well as a seven day meal plan for when you are ready to give baby more complex meals. A note from the Author: Hi, I'm Natalie wife and mother to my beautiful little girl Annabelle. I have always had a passion for cooking but have been far too busy (lazy!) to ever take it seriously, however when I became a mother for the first time food suddenly became extremely important to me, I wanted to be as healthy as I could be during my pregnancy and at six months of age teach my daughter that she can fuel her body in a healthy yet exceptionally tasty way! A local NCT course convinced me that baby led weaning is beyond doubt the best way to wean and once I got started I was amazed at how exciting Annabelle and I found it, I got the baking bug and starting trying every suitable recipe I could find, I then began adjusting recipes to improve them, make them naughtier for special occasions or healthier for every day consumption. I also had to make some simple adjustments to ingredients because Annabelle suffers with a cow milk allergy. After spending hours on end tweaking recipes and writing them up in my little notebook I thought it would be a lovely idea to share them with other mums who would like to go the baby-led waning route and prove that other cows milk allergy suffers can have as much fun with food as any other BLW baby! I hope you enjoy the recipes, your feedback is always welcome.

For thousands of years, humans have thrived without “baby food” (which was invented in the late nineteenth century). Think about it: the human race has made it this far largely on whole food. Only in recent decades have we begun overthinking and over-processing our foods, which has led to chronic dieting, chronic disease, disordered eating, body distrust, and epidemic confusion about the best way to feed ourselves and families. Eating is an innate skill that has been overcomplicated by marketing schemes and a dieting culture. It’s time to leave the dieting culture behind for the whole family. It starts with the baby’s first bite! We are all Born to Eat and it seems only natural for us to start at the beginning—with our babies. When babies show signs of readiness for solid foods, they can eat almost everything the family eats and become healthy, happy eaters in the process. By honoring self-regulation (also an innate skill) and focusing on a whole food foundation, we can foster healthier children, parents, and families. You don’t have to cook another entire meal to feed just baby, nor blend everything you eat into a puree to support healthy growth in an infant. With a little patience, presence, and skill, you can transform nearly any family meal into a baby-friendly food. Who knew a little planning could have the whole family eating together, and better? Aside from the United States, most countries are accepting of babies starting of solids with the foods of the family. With a focus on self-feeding and a baby-led weaning approach, nutritionists and wellness experts Wendy Jo Peterson and Leslie Schilling provide age-based advice, step-by-step instructions, help for parents, and easy recipes so you can ensure that your infant is introduced to healthy and tasty food as early as possible.

'This is a book about feeding children, but these recipes are for adults too. I don't think there should be any sharp distinctions between 'baby food', 'children's food' and 'grown-up food'. It's a spectrum the whole family can be on, the food each person eats becoming a little more sophisticated and seasoned as they mature.' Nikki Duffy brings the River Cottage ethos to feeding children, and shows that it's never too early to involve the youngest family members in mealtimes. Her delicious seasonal purées and simple, wholesome recipes put the needs and wants of babies and toddlers first, whilst offering up dishes that will delight adults too. With clear advice on nutrition and weaning, The River Cottage Baby & Toddler Cookbook is the perfect starting point for your child's great food adventure. Start the day with breakfasts like blueberry pancakes, apple muesli or eggy bread, followed by simple and delicious meals like fishcakes, meatballs, shepherd's pie, home-made pizza, falafel, mackerel pâté, pea risotto or roasted fish with tomato sauce. Nice little puddings include baby baked apples with chocolate, rhubarb crumble and a classic rice pudding. With an introduction by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, this book will put real food on the table for the whole family to share.
