Mango tango smoothies. Quinoa-stuffed bell peppers. Asparagus niçoise salad. Cauliflower gratin. Sounds pretty good, yes? Well, what if we told you these were recipes for toddlers? You'd laugh & ask us to hand you that box of Kraft macaroni & cheese, 'cause that's all kids like, right? Wrong. Getting your children to appreciate and enjoy a wide variety of foods starts with their first tastes of solid food at around 6 months. Lisa Barne's The Petit Appetit Cookbook: Easy, Organic Recipes to Nurture Your Baby and Toddler is designed to help you do just that, starting with delicious pureed meals for babies, then graduating through stages of food exploration and introducing new flavors. And yes, The Petit Appetit Cookbook is designed so that you can eat them too. No one has to know!
