Let Them Eat Dirt: Homemade Baby Food to Nourish Your Family (Paperback)
Healthy eating isn’t always easy—especially for new and/or busy parents. Andrea Bemis is here to provide delicious, simple recipes for parents to help their children develop a healthy relationship with real food at an early age. Her kid-friendly healthy meals and snacks are a breath of fresh air in the noise of being told what to feed infants for primary development—she has created simple, effective ways for them to get the nutrients they need. While this concept may seem intimidating, Andrea’s simple creations will save parents time and money but not skip out on taste, which means happy kids and happy parents! As a new mom herself who runs a sustainable farm of fresh fruits and vegetables for both her family and the local community, her cookbook is for parents to better understand the biology of young children and their fragile digestive systems and help focus on an evolving approach to feeding children. Included are chapters for New and Solid Foods (because it can be stressful to know what to feed a tiny human!) that include recipes such as Winter Squash with Cinnamon and Ghee Purée, Banana Spinach Pancakes, Pumpkin Meatballs, and Cauliflower Cheese Fritters. Additional chapters include recipes for kids and parents alike, such as Sheet Pan Burgers with Sweet Potato Tater Tots, Homemade Tortilla Chips and Farm Stand Salsa, and Almond Thumbprint Cookies with Cherry Chia Jam.
Whatever inspiration for clean eating that new parents are looking for, whether it be snacks, breakfast, dinner, or dessert, they will find it in Andrea’s latest offering of whole, real foods.
