Top 100 Finger Foods by Annabel Karmel -- Review

Top 100 Finger Foods: 100 Recipes for a Healthy, Happy Child Top 100 Finger Foods by Annabel Karmel

Following up on her hit bestseller Top 100 Baby Purees, Annabel Karmel presents Top 100 Finger Foods, a scrumptious guide to creating tasty tidbits that young children can really sink their teeth (or gums!) into. By the age of nine months, many babies are ready and eager to start feeding themselves. Although they might not be able to handle a spoon, children of this age can master the art of eating on their own -- as long as the food they're served is right-sized! Finger foods are the perfect solution.

This essential collection is packed with tempting, nourishing recipes for babies and older children -- from French Toast Fingers and Mini Chicken Sliders to Tuna Muffin Melts and Salad Lollipops -- helping you safely introduce new tastes and textures to your baby and ensuring that your child is healthy, happy, and content.
In Top 100 Finger Foods you will find:
 Delicious options for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert
 Creative ideas for making hearty meals finger-friendly
 Important information on choking prevention and soothing suggestions for your teething little one
 Quick and easy recipes, using basic ingredients, that your child can prepare with you

Packed with wholesome fruits and vegetables, and innovative fish, meat, and chicken creations, Top 100 Finger Foods will satisfy the appetites of growing children -- and with dishes so tasty, parents will want to join in the fun, too. Eating with your hands has never been so delicious and nutritious!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love love love love absolutely love this book! As my AppleBlossom has just started eating some pureed foods I have found myself curious about what is to come next. Then I happened upon Annabel Karmel. I just have to get more of her books!!

This book with the Top 100 Finger Foods has 100 recipes that are very easy to understand with great ingredients that I want to eat them. Literally as I turn the pages, my mouth waters. Not only are these finger food meals healthy, but they are fun and creative for the imagination. With as much fun as AppleBlossom has already with foods of different flavors, I am quite certain that she will enjoy the varying textures and colors of these finger food recipes.

Reading through this recipe book I am quite taken with Annabel Karmel and I am eager to jump into the book that comes before this one with Baby Purees. I highly recommend this book.
