Mealtime is a fairly simple process during the first four-to-six months of a baby’s life. But making the transition between breast milk or formula to solid food can be a challenge for everyone, especially Mom and Dad! An overwhelming amount of information is available in magazines and online, but some of it is conflicting and doesn’t provide clear answers for first-time parents. When do I introduce solid food to my baby? Which foods are the most appropriate for what age? How much food should I make for my baby? What do I feed to a sick child? Which foods are safe enough for my baby to eat in the car? Baby Bowl answers all of these questions and offers parents a collection of healthy recipes designed to happily fill little bellies.
