This cookbook is a collection of recipes and insights from chefs who strive to cultivate a love of good food in their children. I added it to my wish-list after hearing it praised on a favorite podcast.

The rationale for this book confuses me a little. One of its primary premises is that there sho... ...more

What a great book for parents, I do not have picky eaters and I think it was from the way we fed the kids early on. I would puree what we were eating or other items. Baby food is disgusting and if I wouldn't eat something I certainly wouldn't feed it to my kids. The recipes look great, I wish the... ...more

What a clever idea for a cookbook! It is thought that kids are fussy eaters but if you give them good food they will eat good food. Although I have a nephew that when he was very little he loved to dip hot dogs in blueberry yogurt - truly gag worthy. But he is a very adventurous eater because his... ...more

I received this book from goodreads.com for free. It was filled with lots of common-sense advice that parents should know, but for reasons such as being too hurried or having been fed pizza and chicken nuggets by their own parents, seem to have forgotten. I grew up with the "one bite" rule, (not... ...more

This book was full of tips on how to make your children more exposed to other kinds of food and other cultures. And honestly, for everyday use this book was not practical at all. So overall if your goal is to expose your children to different foods and types, and really to try new things without... ...more

nice addition to our cookbook collection. I like how the recipes are laid out by age/stage of the kid. The recipes look yummy and definitely want to try a several. I like that the dishes (beyond the purees) are things the whole family can sit down and eat and not short order cook items for a pick... ...more
By emily (Warwick, NY) · ★★★☆☆ · January 12, 2012
I was a little confused by some aspects of this book. Ms. Aaron brings together a nice selection of chefs and introduces a variety of food types, but somehow, the idea of having a special section for what to feed your teenager sounds more like coddling a picky eater than "cultivating a love of go... ...more

This book is a well-done cookbook and resource guide for parents of children from infants to eleven years old. It gave tips on how to introduce new food to kids as well as how to handle typical age-related problems in relation to what the kids are eating. While I wouldn't try all the recipes for... ...more
