'This is a book about feeding children, but these recipes
are for adults too. I don't think there should be any sharp distinctions
between 'baby food', 'children's food' and 'grown-up food'. It's a spectrum the
whole family can be on, the food each person eats becoming a little more
sophisticated and seasoned as they mature.'
Nikki Duffy brings the River Cottage ethos to feeding
children, and shows that it's never too early to involve the youngest family
members in mealtimes. Her delicious seasonal purées and simple, wholesome
recipes put the needs and wants of babies and toddlers first, whilst offering
up dishes that will delight adults too. With clear advice on nutrition and
weaning, The River Cottage Baby & Toddler Cookbook is the perfect starting point for your child's great
Start the day with breakfasts like blueberry pancakes, apple muesli or
eggy bread, followed by simple and delicious meals like fishcakes,
meatballs, shepherd's pie, home-made pizza, falafel, mackerel pâté, pea
risotto or roasted fish with tomato sauce. Nice little puddings include
baby baked apples with chocolate, rhubarb crumble and a classic rice
pudding. With an introduction by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, this book will put real food on the table for the whole family to share.
