I began making baby food when Sam was about six months old. I had a lot of fun, but I didn't have much guidance. I was unsure about so many things, especially when it came to seasoning my baby's food. When I stumbled across a mention about Sage Spoonfuls, I was intrigued. After receiving The Homemade Lifestyle Package, I quickly discovered how much I didn't know. My favorite part of the package is Liza Huber's "Sage Spoonfuls Book—Simple Recipes*Healthy Meals*Happy Babies." Hands down, it is the best baby food cookbook I've ever read! Liza covers all the basics. She gives you so much to think about (and it's not overwhelming) and she covers the essentials. I like her section on allergies and food intolerance and her attention to special diets. She covers her thoughts on the diet of preemies and my favorite part, herbs and spices! She offers a flavor profile for many herbs and she tells you what it pairs with and how to buy it! She also tells you what to avoid and talks you through infant choking and CPR. The "cookbook" portion is well planned and talks you through the tools you need, shopping, prepping, cooking, pureeing, serving, storing, and making combos. She also tells you how much puree to expect from fruits and veggies along with nutritional information! I really loved her Infused Water recipes! I never really though to give it to a baby!The package I received gives you everything you need to live a homemade lifestyle with ease and makes a wonderful baby shower gift! It includes:
