The story behind the e-book...
As a Holistic Health Coach, I couldn’t wait for the day when I would start making my baby’s food at home. But ironically, when that day came I was totally at a loss and scared to the point where I was frozen with confusion. Was I supposed to feed him at 4 months old like my pediatrician suggested, even though it felt so wrong to me? Could I skip the rice cereals and instead try more nutritious foods? What can a baby eat and not eat? When I do feed him? Do I offer purées or large chunks of what we’re eating? What if he chokes? Spoon or no spoon? Sippy cup or no sippy cup? Do I even give him sips of water?
The questions were endless. I would put him to sleep each night and scroll through websites and moms groups on my tablet looking for answers until I fell asleep. I was able to gather lots of information and learn a great deal, but as with anything on the Web, I became much more confused. To further frustrate me, as with anything parenting-wise, I realized that there was not just one way to feed your baby.
After weeks of this dizzying feeling of confusion, I put all of the notes I had taken aside and promised myself to give up searching online. I sat down and made 3 pages of notes of all of the things that really stood out to me after being bombarded with so much information. I also referenced the nutrition books that line my office. Some of the most trusted professionals and doctors in the holistic-minded realm have offered priceless knowledge regarding this subject because they understand the importance of nourishing a baby from the start and throughout childhood.
-17 wholesome recipes!
-Out of the 17 recipes, there are 12 vegetarian ones (may contain butter or goat/sheep's milk yogurt or kefir), and 7 vegan ones (or recipes that can be made vegan by simple substitutions).
-Absolutely! Many toddlers squeal when they're served a meatball or smoothie pouch from this book. Many of the recipes can be offered to your child as they grow. The greens especially are prepared in a way for their palate to crave them rather than avoid them.
