I remember watching my mom patiently boil potatoes, broccoli, carrots–any common vegetable–and then proceed to hand-grind it in a food processor and, finally, spoon the resulting pulp into one of my younger siblings’ mouths. Much to my fascination, this process was repeated at almost every meal.
Now, about 20 years later, I am thinking about starting my own family within the next few years, and thoughts of how to raise children are not too far from my mind of possibilities.
It was these thoughts that sparked my interest in the book The Pediatrician’s Guide to Feeding Babies and Toddlers. From the pens of medical doctors Anthony F. Porto and Dina M. DiMaggio, this book is chock-full of helpful notes and advice. Easy-to-understand chapter divisions between children’s early age stages helps readers navigate the content, and each chapter includes a list of major milestones, general advice, and recipes to ensure proper nutrition.
This book will definitely be going onto my shelf for future days, and I recommend it to expectant and new mothers everywhere.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
