Book review: Cookbook for Weaners

By ParentsCanada staff on April 23, 2013
For many parents, transitioning their baby to solid foods can be a struggle. Cookbook for Weaners, by Melissa Gunning and Jennifer House MSc, RD, takes the guesswork out of food prep for little ones.

Melissa is a mother of two and founder of Wean Green, the Canadian company behind the eco-chic Wean Cube container. When her children were ready for solid foods, Melissa realized she didn’t know the best way to prepare the most basic foods. Even carrots were a challenge.

The book’s 150 easy recipes, for babies six months and older, are the culmination of her efforts. Melissa partnered with children’s nutritionist, Jennifer House, who reviewed every recipe to ensure it was being introduced at the right stage and in the right amounts.

“We want to introduce them to a variety of fl avours, colours and nutrients,” Melissa says. “The range of foods in the cookbook allow little weaners to develop nutritious eating habits.”

Like Wean Green’s other products, the cookbook encourages healthy eating, and promotes organic and homemade food. The recipes are also easy to make, requiring just pots, pans and a blender.
