“A must-have resource for new moms who want to overcome the overwhelm and uncertainty of starting solids. A realistic and approachable style to feeding little ones, coupled with nutrition expertise and easy recipes. I'm excited to have this guide as a resource to recommend for new parents!” —Marissa McCormick, MS, RD, owner @nutrition4moms

The Baby Food Cookbook for First-Time Parents is an incredible resource for any parent with an infant or toddler who has wondered what they should be feeding their child. As a child psychologist who specializes in reading and ‘translating’ scientific research for parents, I often get questions about introducing solids and nutrition—and this book provides an evidence-based overview of developmental milestones in infant feeding, signs of readiness for solids, introducing allergens, and baby-led weaning. As a mother of three, I found the recipes to be easy to prepare, yet nutritious and appetizing to my baby (and my very picky toddlers!). I would highly recommend this book to any parent who needs guidance in introducing an infant to solid foods or simply needs recipe ideas for an infant or toddler!” —Dr. Cara Damiano Goodwin, PhD, licensed psychologist and founder of Parenting Translator
