There are so many Baby and Toddler cookbooks on the market today. It’s hard to choose which is the best to get. It’s so disappointing when you spend money on a book, only to have your little one refuse to eat anything you cook out of it.
Both of my eldest boys are fussy eaters and I am forever stressing about if they are getting the nutrients they need. I have to admit I do love a cookbook and have them all displayed on my bookshelf but there are a couple that I refer to a lot more than the others. I discovered these 5 while in Australia so a few of them are by Australian chefs or nutritionists however they are all available in the UK – just click on the link under the description of each one!
500 Baby and Toddler Foods by Beverley Glock
As the name suggests this book contains 500 recipes ranging from baby’s first foods to up to toddler meals and desserts. Each recipe also gives you 4/5 alternative options that might better suit your child and their tastes. Another great feature of this book is that it also lets you know how long you can store the meal in the fridge/ freezer and how many child or adult portions it will make.

Wholesome Child by Mandy Sacher
I love love love this book. I got it when I was in Australia- Mandy is Australian but it has to be one of my favourite cookbooks ever! It is packed full of over 140 recipes including, mains, sweet treats and veggie-based meals along with loads of really useful info. It’s a food bible to me and one I use very often.

One-Handed Cooks by Allie Gaunt, Jessica Beaton and Sarah Buckle.
I often used to find myself on these guys websites downloading recipes to cook at the weekend until eventually, I bought the book. I then spent about 2 months cooking loads of recipes out of it and all were amazing. This is a great book for fussy eaters as the recipes are nutrition-packed but not too exotic for little people.
