Cookbook Review and Giveaway: So Easy Toddler Food (Ends 12/2) CLOSED

Tuesday, November 23, 2010 Posted by Dina N

My kids were never fussy eaters when they were babies. Through the toddler years, they kept eating pretty much everything - just not consistently every time I offered it. One day they loved carrots, the next day they hated them. One day we are all about chicken, the next day we are not. Sometimes it seemed the more new foods they tried, the pickier they got.

So Easy Toddler Food by Joan Ahlers and Cheryl Tallman provides practical advice to help parents through the picky eating stage. The three dozen recipes in the book are easy to make and kid-friendly. There are recipes for breakfasts, lunches, dinners, salads, sides, soups and desserts. I found variations of some dishes my kids love - banana strawberry smoothie, breakfast burrito, quesadilla, homemade pizza, and more. In other recipes we've already tried, I discovered cool ideas about presenting the food - how smart is Sand Castle Couscous? As a mom, I know that if kids like what the food looks like, they are more likely to eat it.

The cookbook also includes some interesting recipes that I plan to make soon - Tropical Summer Soup, Frosted Zucchini, Avocado and Orange Salad. All recipes provide nutritional information and the number of toddler or adult servings, and most come with great menu ideas. I love the beautiful photos of each dish. My kids looked at the pictures and wanted to try everything!

So Easy Toddler Food Cookbook is available in English or Spanish at Fresh Baby for $8.95.

    I'd love this one - my two year old is always changing her mind about what she likes! The only constant lately is chicken fingers dipped in ranch dressing.
