The Baby Led Feeding Cookbook by Aileen Cox Blundell

Let your baby discover nutritious, delicious food for themselves - a new healthy way of eating that the whole family will love


In The Baby Led Feeding Cookbook, Aileen Cox Blundell provides over 150 nutritious recipes free from refined sugar and salt, and aimed at starting your child on a life-long food adventure. Every recipe has been developed with health and nutrition in mind and will appeal to the whole family, making mealtimes a pleasure rather than a chore.


There is growing recognition that baby-led feeding is the healthiest way for children to develop a love of good food. It allows babies to use their natural abilities to explore taste, texture, colour and smell. It encourages independence and confidence by allowing them to experiment with foods at their own pace, and helps to develop hand–eye coordination and chewing. It also helps babies learn how to self-regulate the amount they eat, something which can be lost when they are spoon-fed.


Baby-led feeding works from the same principles as baby-led weaning. It begins when your little one is around the six-month mark and has started to show signs of being able to pick up food. But with baby-led feeding, your baby eats what you eat. There is no mashing concoctions of foods you probably wouldn’t eat yourself: you simply cook healthy, delicious food for your family and then let your baby get to work on it on their own.


Wave goodbye to weekends lost to pureeing and freezing food for your baby! The recipes in this book work for the whole family, making mealtimes a pleasure rather than a chore. They include Three-Ingredient Banana Pancakes, Sweet Potato Super Muffins, Tuna and Quinoa Fish Cakes, Avocado Pasta, Chicken Korma Pies, Buddah Bowls and treats like Frozen Yogurt Buttons and Aileen’s healthy version of a Wibbly Wobbly Wonder!

About the Author

 

 

Aileen Cox Blundell is a mum of three. When her daughter, Jade, was born in 2002, the only way to get her to eat anything was to place the food in front of her and let her take control and feed herself. Seeing the incredible benefits of allowing her own children to experiment with food at an early age led her to create the popular blog and website Baby-Led Feeding, which recently won awards for both Best Irish Parenting Blog and Best Irish Food and Drink Blog. Aileen lives in Swords with her husband, Conor, and their three foodie children, Jade, Dylan and Oscar.
