Cooking for Your Child by Nicola Galloway
A trained chef and nutritionist, Galloway focuses on healthy eating but not at the expense of taste and ease of preparation. This book is packed with simple recipes – rather than spending money on the big brand versions, why not make your own rusks, muesli or Chocolate Hazelnut Spread? – along with ideas for adding iron (dried fruit) to baby porridge, protein (ground oats) to pancakes and vitamin and mineral-rich spirulina to smoothies.
Plenty of tips on using ingredients like spices, ground nuts and kelp are scattered in bite-sized chunks throughout the text. The recipes are sandwiched between a chapter on nutrition and a collection of useful appendices, including a meal planner and food introduction table.
While this book will be of most interest to parents, there are few people that won’t learn a little about eating well from reading it.
