Toddler Café: Fast, Healthy and Fun Ways to Feed Even the Pickiest Eater
Feeding toddlers can be a challenge – at least feeding them the right kind of food seems sometimes almost impossible. If you are at your wit’s end about your fussy eater, you need to remember that toddlers go through different stages in their development. They like something one day and not the other. Their taste buds are developing and they are exploring the world of food, tastes and textures.
I like the Toddler Café by Jennifer Carden. The book gives lots of creative advice on how to make mealtime fun so that your toddler will give healthy food a try. Don’t expect your toddler to be changed over night and embrace new textures and tastes right away. But with the help of some interactive mealtime games, even the fussiest toddler might give new food a go instead of throwing it across the room. The author also advocates eating as family, bonding time - from sitting together at mealtimes to later on cooking together.
The book includes over 50 delicious and toddler-friendly (as well as parent friendly) recipes to allow your little ones to explore the world of tastes. From Banana Hot Dogs to Tiny Spinach Mountains to Starry Night Stew.
Overall, if you have a picky eater or are just looking for more recipes toddlers will enjoy, this book would make a good buy.
