A Meal Fit For A Baby

When my son first started on solid foods, I was pretty clueless. I had no idea what to give him or how much. Some of my friends made homemade baby food, which sounded pretty complicated. I remember glancing at a baby recipe book one time and being turned off. It seemed like too much work and I didn't even know where to buy half of the ingredients anyway. So I ended up just buying commercial baby food and hoping that I was giving him the right amount each day.

A Baby Bistro Box would have been a really helpful thing to have during that time. This nifty little box is a wealth of information in a recipe card format. It includes everything you need to know for feeding your baby for the first twelve months. There's prenatal information, safety rules, easy to follow recipes, and helpful shopping tips to help you find what you're looking for at the grocery store. The recipes are healthy and sound delicious. And once your baby reaches the 12 month mark, the Toddler Bistro Box is just the thing to guide you. The Toddler Bistro Box includes interesting information about toddler behavior - for example, did you know that one theory suggests that pickiness is an instinct evolved to prevent cave-babies from sticking poisonous prehistoric bugs or plants in their mouths? I didn't, until I read it in the box. And of course, it also includes nutritious recipes, environmental safety, and creative activities to do with your child. The Toddler Bistro Box is proving to be an extremely useful resource for me right now. I also love the recipe card format. It's innovative and fun to read, plus everything you need is right at your fingertips.

Baby Bistro Brands boxes are available for purchase here. You can also view sample recipe cards, sign up for their newsletter and much more!
