Faced with a perpetual mealtime battle with her baby Millie, Jennie Maizels discovered it wasn’t that Millie did not want eat, she just didn’t want to be spoon-fed by anyone else. Faced with this independence, Jennie Maizels was forced to dream up ideas for foods that Millie could hold, like a mini pizza or a rice ball, until she was able to feed herself, and life became simple again.
But all babies go through a stage when finger-held foods are the best way to feed them. Jenny Maizels has come up with a beautifully illustrated book using a wide range of healthy ingredients, cooked and uncooked, hot and cold, savoury and sweet.
An excellent guide for anyone feeding a child old enough to have sense of independence, but young enough to have difficulty with the etiquette of cutlery! The basic information sections should help compile a storecupboard of easily obtainable and useful fallback ingredients, and the recipes are easy to follow, and often quick to make.
