2020 Holiday Gift Guide: The Big Book of Organic Baby Food #giftsforparents

For parents of infants and young children, one of our favorite holiday gift suggestions is The Big Book of Organic Baby Food by Stephanie Middleberg, MS, RD, CDN. This book is so much more than a recipe book! It contains super helpful information about choosing an organic start, how to go about the first feeding, moving through the age stages, and so much more. It includes over 230 well-explained and easy-to-achieve recipes from finger foods to toddler meals. From the first bite to the first burrito and beyond, this book has parents covered.  Check it out below!

About the Book
Written by a registered dietitian, The Big Book of Organic Baby Food is essentially a handbook for healthy eating for your baby. Stephanie Middleberg's book begins by explaining how and why you should choose an organic start, how to stock an organic kitchen, and valuable information about the first feeding and beyond. Part Two of the book walks you through the following stages:

  • Stage 1 (4-6 months): Single-Ingredient Purees
  • Stage 2 (6-8 months): Smooth Combination Purees
  • Stage 3 (9-12 months): Chunky Combination Purees
  • Smoothies and Finger Foods (10 months and up)
  • Toddler Meals (12 to 18 months)
  • Family Dinner (12 months and up)

We especially love that she includes information about freezing and storage as well as how much of a particular food you will need to create adequate portion sizes. She really covers all the bases and makes it easy to understand how to balance nutrition from the beginning. Trying to make homemade meals for your child can be a daunting task, but this book makes it attainable.
