Item description for Food Adventures by Frances Boswell...
In 100 recipes from all over the world, Adventures in Baby Food takes us from first spoonfuls to first schooldays, exploring and adapting dishes that children are encouraged to try as soon as they're old enough to sit up and take notice. Elisabeth and Frances also come up with ideas to keep children interested, transforming mealtime from that old familiar battlefield into a playground where everyone can join the fun. Baby food is, after all, not just for the early years-it's the first step towards a lifetime of enjoyable food.

Reviews - What do customers think about Food Adventures?
Good intro to foods from around the world Apr 11, 2007
I have Annabel Karmel's First Meals, and I wanted something a little different since it feels there are many interesting fruits, vegetables, and grains she doesn't explore. Food Adventures isn't quite what I was looking for, but I'm glad I found it. There are many interesting recipes for toddlers and kids, though the baby section is a bit brief for my taste (otherwise, I would have given it 5 stars). You'll find recipes for common baby foods in other countries, such as rice congee in China, blueberry soup in Scandinavian and Eastern European countries, and quinoa and butternut squash in Peru. Another nice touch...a chapter on first aid foods around the world, such as prune compote as a natural laxative, potatoes and carrots for a runny tummy, and mangu (a porridge made of mashed cooked plantains) for an upset tummy.
