“FEEDING BABY: Simple Approaches to Raising a Healthy Baby and Creating a Lifetime of Nutritious Eating,” by Clancy Cash Harrison, Front Table Books, $19.99, 224 pages

From food allergies to tantrums to picky eaters, moms seem to figure out how to feed children by the time the youngest graduates from high school. With green bean purees and that strange mac-and-cheese-only phase, children — and their taste buds — are ever-changing.

The good news is registered dietitian and pediatric feeding therapist Clancy Cash Harrison wrote “Feeding Baby: Simple Approaches to Raising a Healthy Baby and Creating a Lifetime of Nutritious Eating” in an effort to make the feeding process enjoyable and successful.

This guide is far more than a cookbook, with the first four chapters dedicated to educating mothers on the importance of things like taste sensory, nutrition, food allergies, when to introduce certain foods and 100 ways to serve fruits and veggies. The pages are colorful, neatly organized, pleasing to the eye and easy to understand.

Chapter five delves into delicious and creative recipes for babies 4 months and older, including Avocado Egg Salad, Calcium Spiked Squash and Cranberry Applesauce. Harrison has something to offer for first-time moms as well as seasoned mothers. Her work experience and background — as well as being a mother of two — proves beneficial in “Feeding Baby,” and parents can rest assured this book would include all the feeding tips they would ever need.

While the pages are beautifully laid out, they weigh on the lighter side when it comes to photos accompanying every recipe. Overall, this cookbook would likely be a hit at every baby shower.
