Easy recipes and mealtime independence with Healthy Food for a Healthy Baby by Monique Le Roux Forslund

Healthy Food for a Healthy BabyNew from Struik Lifestyle – Healthy Food for a Healthy Baby by Monique Le Roux Forslund:

As a parent and a teacher, Monique le Roux Forslund has first-hand experience of the effect food has on children. She has seen how sugar and other fast-acting carbohydrates can cause them to become over-active and struggle with concentration.

In Healthy Food for a Healthy Baby she shows you how to give your baby a healthy and nourishing start to life. In addition to more than 100 easy recipes appropriate for babies aged six to 18 months, there are tips about natural good food to ensure that your child maintains all-round good health. Although this is not a “low carb high fat” recipe book, the recipes do not include wheat flour and sugar.

In addition, there is information on encouraging your child to develop mealtime independence – aka baby-led weaning (BLW) – much sooner than you’d expect.
