201 Organic Baby Purees - The Freshest, Most Wholesome Food Your Baby Can Eat



As often as I can, I make Madelaine homemade purees, and I did for Ava when she was a baby as well. 

I was given a copy of  201 Organic Baby Purees - The Freshest, Most Wholesome Food Your Baby Can Eat written by Tamika L. Gardner - to try out some recipies.

The book has 7 chapters:

1) Organics 101: How Your Baby Benefits from Eating Organically
  • Organic vs. "All- Natural"
  • GMO info
  • The Toxic Twenty - Pesticide load on fruit & veggies

2) Organic Made Accessible: Stocking Your Pure Food Pantry
  • Choosing between Fresh produce (Farm or Backyard), Frozen or Canned

3) Baby Puree Essentials: Tips, Tricks, and Techniques for Healthy Homemade Meals
  • Kitchen Tools, Safety, Cooking Techniques
  • Baking, Steaming, Microwaving, Boiling info
  • Cooking, Freezing, & Thawing instructions

4) First Stage Meals (Six to Seven Months): Smooth Purees for Beginner Explorers
  • Cereals
  • First-Stage Cuisines ie. Bananas, Butternut Squash, Sweet Potatoes, Apples, and more
  • Recipies like Blissful Greens; Carrot-Apple Gold Puree; Apple Banana Oatmeal

5) More Flavor to Savor (Eight or Nine Months): Introducing Semismooth Purees
  • Meats, Cheese, Lentils, Pasta, and more introduced into the mix
  • Recipies like Cheesy Mashed Potatoes; Wholesome Chicken, Carrot, and Rice Dinner 

6) Pleasing on Expanded Palate (Ten to Twelve Months): Purees for Little Ones
  • Couscous, Strawberries, Citrus, Black Beans, and more introduced into the mix

7) Fun and Fingerlicious Food (Twelve Months and Beyond): Transitional Meals for Toddlers
  • Fruit muffins, smoothies & milkshakes, Tortilla chips
  • Recipies like Sweet Potato Fries; Raspberry Strawberry Muffins; Breakfast Pizza

The last page outlines a menu suggestion for a whole week for toddlers - giving a working example for parents. I like that this book is full of different suggestions and delicious meals that I would eat.  I would recommend it to parents because it's simple to follow and full of great meal ideas.

I was given a complementary copy of 201 Organic Baby Purees for my review. All opinions expressed are my own.
