Book Review: Best Food for Your Baby and Toddler

It’s often true that the earlier you develop a certain habit, the more likely it is to stick with you. This is especially important to keep in mind when it comes to eating. When you start children on a healthy diet early, you’ll hopefully lay a foundation of healthy eating throughout the child’s life. The book, Best Food for Your Baby & Toddler, is an essential tool for starting your child on the road to a healthier lifestyle.

Author Jeannette Bessinger (with Tracee Yablon-Brenner) shares some important reasons for feeding your baby well. For instance, “Healthy food can have more protective power than medicines to strengthen [your baby’s] young immune system.” She also notes about today’s childhood obesity problem that it is “much harder … to fix an existing problem than to prevent it from occurring in the first place.” These are important reasons for thinking about what goes into your baby’s mouth -- even before she is born.

Best Food for Your Baby & Toddler takes readers through a baby’s first three years, explaining your child’s dietary and nutrition needs, and offering guidance on how to meet these needs through a healthy eating program. The second part of the book provides delicious and easy recipes for pleasing your child’s palate while ensuring she’s eating healthfully. Spread throughout the book are helpful tips and charts on topics such as choking signs and remedies, foods at higher risk for causing allergies, healthy foods for nursing moms, and much more.

It’s time to tackle childhood obesity and unhealthy eating habits as early as possible. Best Food for Your Baby & Toddler is a must-read for every parent who wants to start her child on the path to good health.
