"Learn to make healthy food for your baby and toddler while introducing new flavors and inspiring your children to be adventurous eaters! Baby Food Universe provides healthy baby food recipes that range from simple one- and two-ingredient purees to healthy and creative toddler food. When babies first start on solid foods, they are given one-ingredient purees so parents can first check for any adverse reaction or allergy. As they get older and their likes and tolerances are known, the number of ingredients and variety can increase. This book is intended to follow those stages of development so parents can use the book for the first year and beyond. Most purees will be veggie and fruit-based, with additional foods, such as healthy fats, spices, grains, and meat, being introduced as baby's palette and tolerances grow.
