The underlying philosophy behind Wholefood for Children is the importance of feeding growing children whole and real food, preferably organic. The recipes cater for children from the age of 6 months up to 7 years, starting with introducing solid foods to babies. The recipes range from breakfasts through to lunch and dinner, as well as portable snacks for lunch boxes.
About the Author
Jude Blereau is the author of Wholefood and Coming Home to Eat.
An absolute must for every household in my opinion. I bought this book when my daughter was 9 months old and she has pretty much been raised on it and the concept of living on wholefood. Jude Blereau gives so much good and clear information on what constitute a healthy and wholesome "diet" for growing children. Her recipes are simple, accurate and very flavoursome (I've tried and tested almost all of them!), and would surely satisfy the picky palates of most kids and adults alike! Not much use of refined sugar except in the celebration cakes for better results and also... because life's too short to always stick to the rules! Most of the recipes also come with accompanying side notes, which I find is a nice touch, very interesting and educational.
Jude Blereau is a fantastic wholefood cook and author. She is an encyclopaedia on good nutrition and health. What Jude doesn't know about food isn't worth knowing. This book has a vast variety of healthy meals for the whole family and they are delicious. The first third of the book educates us about foods and explaining their importance and the effect they have on our health. The rest of the book contains beautiful, straight forward recipes. Highly recommended - get healthy!
Excellent book for any parent.
If you have any sort of trouble understanding how to incorporate good wholesome foods into the diet of a fussy little munchkin in your life, this book can help! The first half of the book is educational- what kids need, and why. The second half is recipes, kid friendly recipes! Jude Blereau is a local Perth woman, so all the ingredients are readily accessible and the recipes are written for Australian cooks! (There are no obscure items that you have to 'Google' before going shopping!! And all measures are given in metric weights and cups- no pints and pounds...??)
- In many ways you've summed up how I feel about foretsing animals. I haven't personally been able to foster any cats or dogs (my apartment doesn't allow them) but my mom has probably fostered over 100 animals in the last 4 or 5 years, and for a year and a half of that time I was living at home, so I have plenty experience with the process between that, and talking to my mom about it. I try to recommend it to friends (and lets be real, relative strangers with whom I somehow strike up a conversation about it) who have lost a pet and perhaps aren't quite ready to adopt again yet, but could use some furry company to fill the void, but I'm often met with strong disinterest out of fear that they'd become animal hoarders. I understand how one might think that, if they hadn't experienced it themselves, and I will fully admit that it has been harder to send some animals off to their new homes than others (we also have adopted two cats that were former fosters) but for the most part I find it to be so fulfilling to help shape/raise/rehabilitate an animal that might not otherwise have had a chance at life. To each their own, and I'm sure some would have more trouble with it than others; we've become a bit more detached to the foster animals that are ever present in the house out of necessity, but no less caring. I think it's necessary to have some small level of detachment in order to be able to give them up to their new family (my mom also has fostered a host of sickly kittens, so sometimes its necessary to forestall heartbreak when the likelihood of their living is slim). Essentially, rambling comment aside, I really appreciate your words on the subject, and commend you for doing something that is difficult, but ultimately so rewarding. Think of all the animals (and people) whose lives you've made an enormously positive impact on! Also, this soba noodle salad sounds fantastic, and consequently I just bookmarked it for a dinner soon!
