Whether you’re a seasoned chef or a kitchen novice, preparing homemade baby food can be unfamiliar territory. Proving that it can be nutritious and delicious without spending all day in the kitchen are some savvy chefs, editors and nutritionists, many of whom are fellow moms and dads. Here, find their baby food cookbooks that can guide you in the daily journey of feeding the tiniest and often most selective member of your family.

Best Recipes for Raising a Mini Foodie

While the recipes in Little Foodie: Recipes for Babies and Toddlers with Taste may have been developed for the youngest eater in your family, these dishes are ones the whole family can easily enjoy. Developed by the mom of two behind the delicious baby food blog Baby FoodE, we love Olivier’s depiction of a foodie superhero – an adventurous eater who isn’t afraid to at least taste everything, and her cookbook features awesome tips for turning your tiny taster into a true food lover.

Why You Should Buy It: Olivier recognizes that parents need to eat too, and includes fun drink pairings for the grown-up set. It’s truly a cookbook for the whole family.
