Liven Your Little One's Taste Buds!

            Hey folks! There seems to be a misconception that baby's first foods have to be bland and boring...Which is simply not true! We have been slowly introducing purees to Little Bit lately, so I was definitely interested when I came across the book Around the World in 80 Purees: Easy Recipes for Global Baby Food on Mom Bloggers Club recently. Here's a little more about the book:

            The transition to solid foods is a milestone across all cultures. And by sharing a broad range of flavors and ingredients with their little ones, parents can encourage a lifetime of adventurous eating. In Around the World in 80 Purees, Saini shares her research of global first foods and offers developmentally appropriate serving suggestions and tips for safely introducing babies to herbs, spices, and other ingredients. More than 100 quick and easy recipes, accompanied by richly colorful photographs by Christine Han, take readers on a culinary tour of the globe.

             Now, if you're anything like me, I like to find out as much as I can about books before actually committing to purchasing them. I love books, but they can be kind of pricey! If Around the World in 80 Purees sounds like something you would be interested, you're in luck! You can check out a few of their recipes below.

            What were your babies favorite first foods? Did you completely skip purees and go straight to finger foods? Be sure to check back for a full review of the book Around the World in 80 Purees soon!

  1. Wow! I am so happy to see food from Thailand too! Awesome food suggestion I think I will share with my lovely niece! :)

    Thank you so much for linking up with us on #FabFridayPost . My apology for taking me so long to comment. xx

  2. Nice recipes! I wish I had this when my little one was transitioning. She went right to solid but ended up not liking any food that was "hard" or required chewing. That pretty much ruled out all the meat and vegetables! Now I have a super picky eater :( Hope this great book will save other parents from my mistake! #RookieParents

    1. Oh no! I've always heard such good things about transitioning straight to solid foods, too. :/
