Good Food For Kids

My hubby had his football match after work yesterday. Since I knew he gonna be back home late than the usual I asked his permission to make a pit stop at SP after work. I wanted to do a quick grocery shopping at Cold Storage.


After my mission was accomplished, I decided to pay a visit to MPH.

"Lama tak beli buku..." I told myself.


At first, I went to the children's section. Wanted to buy a new story book for Faaz but couldn't find a suitable one so I proceed to my favourite section, cooking :) While I was looking around, there was this one particular purple book that caught my eyes - Good Food For Kids by Dr. Penny Stanway. I browsed through the pages and instantly fell in love with it.


What I like the most about this book is that not only it has over 100 simple but nutritious recipes for children as early as 4 months, this book also includes advice on introducing new taste and texture to the kids, clear practical advice on reducing the risk of allergies as well as advice on controlling ailments such as asthma and eczema through diet. But most importantly, it also includes ideas for feeding fussy eaters! This would definitely benefit me since Faaz is now a bit choosy and fussy when it comes to his meal. So I grabbed a new copy and went straight to the cashier to pay. I was surprised when the amount showed on the screen was less than RM20! Apparently this book is on a 30% discount. Not bad huh! :)



Excitedly I went home. After freshen up, I started to read the book. Faaz as usual cannot be parted from his Mommy so he read his numbers book too. Hihi. The first few chapters are more to information, explanation and tips. I love the fact that this book also discourage the usage of salt and sugar on kids food, although some recipes do include them, but the amount is minimal. The recipes looks so tempting...made me eager to try out all of them!


When I was busy looking at the recipes, Faaz was eyeing on the book too. Maybe, he was tempted with the delicious meal on the display photos like his Mommy... :)

"Why Mommy's book is more interesting than mine?"

"Mommy...can I have a look at your book?"

"Mmm...macam best je buku nie..*smiled*"

"Owh..a recipe book for me.."

"Oh tell me, tell me..when Mommy wanna try this for Faaz, Mommy???"

"This weekend, Mommy?? Bestnyeeer!!"

First time mommies, I do recommend this book. Memang best. For mommies with child who have asthma, eczema and allergies, the tips will provide some assistance to you too. You can find this book at MPH now for RM19.90 only :)

1st : wah..faaz dh ada gigi bnyk..nmpak makin hensem gitu :)

2nd : buku tu sgt best...kna dapatkan gak satu. damia skrg pun susah jugak nk mkn..tp klu nugget, sosej, fries sgt laju nk mkn...since dh besar ni n nursery slalu bg mkn bnda2 cmtu dia jd mls mkn nasi...ms g jogja wani pelik dia leh mtk makanan cmtu..ingtkan sbb mknan tu baru bg dia, so dia eager to try rupanya dia mmg dh selalu mkn kt nursery...adoi..fening...kita punyala jg pemakanan dia tp nursery??? ingtkn sekali skala blehla tutup mata bg mkn kt dia bnda2 tu pdhal dh lama nursery bg dia...patutla dia suka..huhuuu..

3rd : x sabar nk tgk reaksi faaz bila mommy dh cuba resepi tu nanti :)

Nadine said...

Lady D,

Weeee! :) Dah cuba blum? I tried Baked Ptatoes with Cauliflower Cheese. Faaz sukak!! :)


Nadia,

Kalau pegi SP rembat satu copy ok? :)


Wani,

Hihi..mekacih.

Ic, maybe nursery nak senang kan. Finger food mcm tu senang nak masak n kids luv it. Tapi tak elok mkn slalu kan? Eh beli la buku nie, mmg best. Siap ade contoh deco for kids. Cute sgt! :)

Hehe..Nadia dh try satu resipe. Alhamdulillah kena ngan selera dia :). Faaz kalau suka satu2 food tu, kita suap dia akan jalan pusing2 joget2 sket. Pastu radius dia dkt je la so that dia boleh pusing balik cpt. Tp kalau dia tak suka, dia pegi jauh..kita kena kejar..hihihi.

Nurra Din said...

Faaz ni makin besar makin comel hokey. nak2 pipi dia yg tak pernah surut tu. I bet pasni pipi dia mesti lagi bagai di pam2 since mommy dia akan ade new sets of recipe to be tried out..hehe!

Nadine said...

Awwh..thanks Nurra. Faaz makin besar makin ikut feature my hubby. If u notice rambut dia skang dah makin curly dah. :)

Bagai dipam2..adoila makin squarish la muka baby I mcm nie..hihi
