CONGRATULATIONS @BeckiBooBoop who has won this prize!
In a time of significant controversy around what constitutes a safe, healthy diet for babies and toddlers, Vanessa Clarkson’s Real Food for Babies and Toddlers is a breath of fresh air.
The first 1,000 days of our lives is a time when our bodies grow at a pace never to be repeated at any other time. These days are when we are open to exploration and when we form opinions on what we like and what we do not. It’s also when our bodies depend on nutritious food to aid our development. In Real Food for Babies and Toddlers, UK-trained nutritionist Vanessa Clarkson provides support for parents who want to make the most of this window and use the foundation of a wholesome diet to support their baby’s development in every way possible.
Vanessa Clarkson argues against the traditional method of spoon-feeding their babies pureed food. Instead, Vanessa calls for parents to learn how to read their baby’s natural cues and introduce them to real food which can ultimately make a difference in their enjoyment, development and long-term health. Packed full of invaluable nutritional advice, Vanessa’s grounded approach makes good, healthy whole food for babies and toddlers achievable for ‘real’, busy families, especially for those who don’t have time to make separate meals for each family member at each stage of a baby’s weaning or a toddler’s introduction to new foods.
Containing over 80 seasonal recipes, Real Food for Babies and Toddlers is all about introducing babies to a world of bright and flavoursome foods from the get-go. Each recipe encourages babies to try a wide range of tastes and textures so they are more accepting of different foods as they grow up. Introduce your baby to Almond Buttermilk Porridge with Cherry Compote for breakfast; Banana, Raspberry and Coconut Bread at snack time; Chicken with Green Couscous, Blueberries and Toasted Almonds for dinner; and Summer Berry Frozen Labneh Bars for dessert. And the best thing of all is that all of the recipes appeal to all ages, so parents can spend less time in the kitchen cooking multiple meals.
