A new addition to the definitive series (150,000 books in print) on how babies can learn to eat solids by joining family meals from the start
Forget spoon-feeding—there’s an easier, more natural way to introduce your little one to solid foods. By about six months, when babies can sit up, grab things, and “munch” on them, they are ready to join the family table and discover food for themselves. Now, in The Baby-Led Weaning Family Cookbook, Gill Rapley and Tracey Murkett update their guidelines, share 100 all-new recipes, and recap the many benefits of baby-led weaning:
- It’s convenient for parents: BLW avoids fussy purees and lets parents cook just one meal for everyone. Plus, here are tips on cooking in batches, freezing, and snacks to take on the go.
- It’s good for Baby’s development: Exploring food at their own pace helps babies build motor skills and coordination.
- It promotes lifelong health: By teaching babies to love a healthy variety of flavors and to gauge fullness, BLW helps prevent picky eating, and overeating, later on!
The first book in the series with color photos throughout, this essential guide to BLW is a testament to the joy of eating together.
