Baby-Led Feeding. Jenna Helwig, $24.99

What if you could skip the tiny jars and pouches of bland baby food in favor of a more natural, flavor-filled, and family-friendly transition to solid foods? Baby-led feeding (also known as baby-led weaning) is just that. Feeding your baby a variety of healthy, wholesome solid foods, rather than relying solely on purees, is thought to promote motor skills and establish lifelong healthy eating habits. Here, author and food editor at Parents magazine Jenna Helwig gives an easy-to-follow introduction to this popular new method.

With more than 100 ideas and recipes, this bright, photo-driven book includes chapters on the benefits of this approach, when and how to get started, essential safety and nutrition guidelines, frequently asked questions, basic fruit and vegetable prep, more complex finger foods, and family meals. All recipes have been reviewed by a registered dietitian and include nutrition information to ensure a healthy mealtime.

Baby-Led Weaning, Revised 10th Anniversary Edition: the Essential Guide to Introducing Solid Foods and Helping Your Baby Grow Up a Happy and Confident Eater. Gill Rapley & Tracey Murkett, $21.00

Forget baby purées and spoon-feeding — there’s an easier, more natural way for parents to introduce their baby to solid foods.

Now, ten years after the first publication of this guide, baby-led weaning is a global movement. Here originators of the concept Gill Rapley and Tracey Murkett update their guidelines on baby-led weaning, recap its many benefits, and offer parents all-new research on how to feed their little one. Baby-led weaning is:

  • Good for baby’s development and lifelong health
  • More convenient for parents than purées
  • Just as safe as spoon-feeding

The Baby-Led Weaning Family Cookbook: Your Baby Learns to Eat Solid Foods — You Enjoy the Convenience of One Meal for Everyone. Gill Rapley & Tracey Murket, $29.95

Gill Rapley and Tracey Murkett are the creators of baby-led weaning (BLW), a commonsense way to introduce your baby to solid foods. There’s no need to struggle with purées and spoon-feeding! Instead, Baby can explore the same foods you enjoy — how they feel, smell, and taste; how to grasp them and chew them — all at his or her own pace. The Baby-Led Weaning Family Cookbook includes 99 all-new recipes, many suited for families of 4 or more. Plus, Rapley and Murkett review all the benefits of BLW:

  • It’s convenient: The whole family eats the same meal — together
  • It helps Baby learn: BLW builds motor skills, coordination, and confidence
  • It promotes lifelong health: By teaching Baby to love a variety of foods and to gauge fullness, BLW helps prevent picky eating, and overeating, later on!

Baby-Led Weaning: the (Not-So) Revolutionary Way to Start Solids and Make a Happy Eater. Teresa Pitman, $19.95

Put down the spoon and forget the purées — baby-led weaning is the easy, natural way for your baby to start solid foods. Around 6 months, most babies are developmentally ready to self-feed. The philosophy behind baby-led weaning is to offer your baby healthy finger foods and let her determine how much or how little she wants to eat. The baby-led method has been proven to:

  • Encourage healthy eating habits
  • Discourage pickiness
  • Help children learn to listen to their bodies
  • Build confident eaters

Author Teresa Pitman, a leading parenting authority and mother of four, has put together all you need to know about the baby-led method in an informative, visually appealing package. Baby-Led Weaning features at-a-glance nutrition and food tips as well as specific chapters on special diets and allergies. Parents around the world are turning to the baby-led method, and Baby-Led Weaning is a uniquely authoritative and lively volume on this growing phenomenon.

Broccoli Boot Camp is a comprehensive guide for parents of children who are selective or "picky" eaters, and children with — or without — special needs (e.g, autism or Down syndrome). It presents commonsense behavioural interventions to successfully expand children's diet variety, and preferences for healthy foods.

The book describes ways to increase compliance, factors to consider when choosing an intervention, and strategies to shape behaviour. Finally, five intervention plans are presented with step-by-step procedures, modifications, and tips on maximizing success. Parents can choose the intervention which works best for their family's circumstances. The book also contains forms to track data, incentives, and meals, and a behaviour contract to use with older children. Broccoli Boot Camp gives parents the tools they need to promote healthy eating for their child as well as improve the family mealtime experience!

Complementary Feeding: Nutrition, Culture and Politics. Gabrielle Palmer, $18.95

Gabrielle Palmer's groundbreaking book THE POLITICS OF BREASTFEEDING highlighted the controversies surrounding the aggressive promotion of breastmilk substitutes. She now turns her attention to complementary feeding — the first foods that a child eats besides milk.

For most of human existence, children went without industrially processed foods and branded food products. The power and influence of the food industry has increased dramatically in recent decades. Seductive and often unethical modern marketing methods have led to the promotion of unsuitable, unnecessary and sometimes harmful baby foods. Yet not all industrially processed foods are bad and not all 'natural' foods are good. Both poor and rich children may be inappropriately fed.

What lessons can we learn from history? How do cultural and religious beliefs influence the choice of food? Can government initiatives have any effect? How can we provide good nutrition for all infants? This brief, compassionate and thought-provoking new book will be of interest to anyone who is curious about the world, its children and their nutrition, and will stimulate discussion and debate as part of the campaign to create a world where health for all is a true goal.

Helping Your Child with Extreme Picky Eating: a Step-by-Step Guide for Overcoming Selective Eating, Food Aversion, and Feeding Disorders. Katja Rowell & Jenny McGlothlin, $25.95

In Helping Your Child with Extreme Picky Eating, a family doctor specializing in childhood feeding joins forces with a speech pathologist to help you support your child's nutrition, healthy growth, and end meal-time anxiety (for your child and you) once and for all.

Are you parenting a child with 'extreme' picky eating? Do you worry your child isn't getting the nutrition he or she needs? Are you tired of fighting over food, suspect that what you've tried may be making things worse, but don't know how to help? Having a child with 'extreme' picky eating is frustrating and sometimes scary. Children with feeding disorders, food aversions, or selective eating often experience anxiety around food, and the power struggles can negatively impact your relationship with your child. Children with extreme picky eating can also miss out on parties or camp because they can't find “safe” foods. But you don't have to choose between fighting over every bite and only serving a handful of safe foods for years on end.

Helping Your Child with Extreme Picky Eating offers hope, even if your child has “failed” feeding therapies before. After gaining a foundation of understanding of your child's challenges and the dynamics at play, you'll be ready for the five steps (built around the clinically proven STEPS+ approach-Supportive Treatment of Eating in PartnershipS) that transform feeding and meals so your child can learn to enjoy a variety of foods in the right amounts for healthy growth. You'll discover specific strategies for dealing with anxiety, low appetite, sensory challenges, autism spectrum-related feeding issues, oral motor delay, and medically-based feeding problems. Tips and exercises reinforce what you've learned, and dozens of “scripts” help you respond to your child in the heat of the moment, as well as to others in your child's life (grandparents or your child's teacher) as you help them support your family on this journey. This book will prove an invaluable guide to restore peace to your dinner table and help you raise a healthy eater.

It’s Not about the Broccoli: Three Habits to Teach Your Kids for a Lifetime of Healthy Eating. Dina Rose, $23.00

You already know how to give your kids healthy food — the hard part is getting them to eat it. When parents focus solely on nutrition, their kids — surprisingly — eat poorly. But when families shift their emphasis to behaviors – the skills and habits kids are taught — they learn to eat right. Every child can learn to eat well — but only if you show them how to do it. Dr. Rose describes the three habits — proportion, variety, and moderation — all kids need to learn, and gives you clever, practical ways to teach these food skills, including:

  • How to confidently explore strange, new foods
  • How to know when they’re hungry and when they’re full
  • How to branch out from easy-to-like prepackaged kid fare to more mature tastes and textures
  • How to engage in open and honest talk about food

Kid Food: the Challenges of Feeding Children In a Highly Processed World. Bettina Elias Siegel, $27.50

In Kid Food, nationally recognized food writer Bettina Elias Siegel (New York Times, The Lunch Tray) explores the cultural delusions and industry deceptions that have made it all but impossible to raise a healthy eater in America. Combining first-person reporting with the hard-won understanding of a food advocate and parent, it presents a startling portrayal of the current food landscape for children — and the role of parents in navigating it. Siegel also lifts the curtain on shadowy food industry front-groups, including clever marketing techniques that intentionally confuse parents about a product's nutritional value. (Did you know that "made with real fruit" may mean a product is less healthy?) What emerges is the industry's divide-and-conquer strategy, one that stokes kids' desire for junk food while breaking down parents' ability to act as responsible gatekeepers.

For anyone who frets over what their child is eating, Kid Food offers both essential reading and a deeper understanding of the factors at play in their child's food environment. Written in the same engaging and relatable voice that has made The Lunch Tray a trusted resource for parents for almost a decade, Kid Food offers a well of compassion — and expertise — for those fighting the good fight at home.

Children are often picky eaters, but for kids on the autism spectrum or with sensory issues, trying new foods can be especially challenging. In Nope! Never! Not for Me! a young child refuses to try a bite of broccoli — that is, until her mom guides her through a careful exploration of the new food. First she looks, then she sniffs, then touches, and finally takes one tiny bite. What do you know? Broccoli isn't so overwhelming after all!

With simple, reassuring text and bold illustrations in a limited palette, Nope! Never! Not For Me! espouses a patient approach to picky eating and gently offers practical advice for coping with new experiences to sensitive children on and off the autism spectrum.

Outside the Box: Why Our Children Need Real Food, Not Food Products. Jeannie Marshall, $21.00

When Canadian journalist Jeannie Marshall moved to Rome with her husband, she delighted in Italy's famous culinary traditions. But when Marshall gave birth to a son, she began to see how that food culture was eroding, especially within young families. Like their North American counterparts, Italian children were eating sugary cereal in the morning and packaged, processed, salt- and fat-laden snacks later in the day. Busy Italian parents were rejecting local markets for supermercati, and introducing their toddlers to fast food restaurants only too happy to imprint their branding on the youngest of customers. So Marshall set on a quest to discover why something that we can only call "kid food" is proliferating around the world. How did we develop our seemingly insatiable desire for packaged foods that are virtually devoid of nutrition? How can even a mighty food culture like Italy's change in just a generation? And why, when we should and often do know better, do we persist in filling our children's lunch boxes, and young bodies, with ingredients that can scarcely even be considered food?

Through discussions with food crusaders such as Alice Waters, with chefs in Italy, nutritionists, fresh food vendors and parents from all over, and with big food companies such as PepsiCo and Nestle, Marshall gets behind the issues of our children's failing nutrition and serves up a simple recipe for a return to real food.

What to Feed Your Baby: Cost-Conscious Nutrition for Your Infant. Stan Cohen, $22.95

When babies are born, parents are bombarded with information, much of it around infant feeding. Sorting through it all can be confusing and intimidating. In WHAT TO FEED YOUR BABY parents can find clear, accessible advice about feeding their babies in the first year.

Detailed, concise, and thoughtful, WHAT TO FEED YOUR BABY will help parents understand the impact of the feeding choices they make in these early months of their child’s life. (Note: this book is American, so it does not necessarily reflect the costs and lifestyle influences — such as length of maternity leave — parents here in Canada experience.
