BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

The Baby Food Bible: A Complete Guide to Feeding Your Child, from Infancy On, by Eileen Behan, gives new parents some key information on how and what to feed their babies.

The author believes that starting children out with healthy eating habits will give them the opportunity to become adults with healthy eating habits.

This book serves as a guide for more than 100 foods that have been recommended for infants and toddlers by the American Academy of Pediatrics. The Baby Food Bible tells parents when these foods should be introduced into their child’s diet and also talks about the importance of setting healthy eating routines that involve families having sit-down meals together.

Additional topics covered in the book are how to foster an appetite for a healthy variety of new foods, how to avoid pitfalls like too much juice or labeling a child as a picky eater, establishing a meal and snack schedule, deciphering ingredient lists, preventing food related allergies and encourage foods that will fend off chronic diseases.

Also included are some recipes, advice for eating out and an index that gives instructions on how to buy, store, prepare and serve those 100 recommended foods. The overall theme of The Baby Food Bible shows through that your food choices make a big difference on your health, and the health of your children.

DIET and NUTRITION

The Baby Food Bible is filled with various tips on keeping your baby healthy through feeding them the right foods at a young age and introducing them to sound healthy eating habits that will last through their lifetime.

From the 100 foods recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics to the recipes and pointers on the best ways to prepare foods, the foods that are focused on in The Baby Food Bible are all geared toward infants and toddlers and their developing health.

Some of the 100 recommended foods are squash, soybeans, spinach and rice.

It is recommended that parents set up a meal and snack schedule. This allows the children to get into the habit of eating several small healthy meals throughout the day. Another recommendation includes centering meals at the dining room table. This allows the family to focus on each other rather than being distracted by television or other things while eating. Some of the recipes that are included with this book are:

  • Tofu Spinach Pasta Sauce
  • Turkey Sausage Soup with Beans and Greens
  • Quick-Cooking Chili
  • Chicken and Rice Soup
  • Hamburger Soup
  • Chicken Barley Stew
  • Twice Baked Creamed Fish
  • Turkey and Rice Soup
EXERCISE

This book does not include exercise due to it being focused on the eating needs of infants and toddlers.

CONCLUSION

The Baby Food Bible is a great tool for introducing young children to healthy food choices. The sooner you start incorporating healthy habits for your kids, the sooner you might see healthy changes in the entire household.

Many children may not even be picky eaters, but they just haven’t had the opportunity to try the nutritious foods their bodies need. Children develop many lifelong habits at a very early age. With The Baby Food Bible, you can encourage them to have eating habits that are healthy and beneficial with the long-term hope that they will become healthy adults with sound eating habits.
