Book summary of Feeding Littles and Beyond by Ali Maffucci

An inspirational, accessible family cookbook that offers everything a parent needs to bring joy and love back into the kitchen, by the baby and toddler feeding experts behind Feeding Littles and the New York Times bestselling cookbook author of Inspiralized. When it was time to introduce solids to her firstborn, Ali Maffucci didn’t want to make baby food from scratch or buy expensive premade purées. Enter baby-led weaning (or baby-led feeding)—and Megan McNamee and Judy Delaware, the dietitian/occupational therapist duo behind preeminent parenting resource Feeding Littles—which skips spoon-feeding altogether so babies can eat what the family eats. As babies feed themselves, they explore a variety of aromas, shapes, and colors while developing fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, dexterity, and healthy eating habits. McNamee and Delaware also help their clients navigate—or prevent—picky eating at all ages and raise a generation of intuitive eaters who listen to their bodies and love a variety of food. Why am I sharing this story—and why was my son eating veggies with dinosaurs? It had been a year of countless frustrating and demoralizing mealtimes during which my almost-two-year-oldson refused to try any new foods. I needed guidance and reached out to Judy, an occupationaltherapist who specializes in pediatric feeding therapy and is cofounder of Feeding Littles, an online resource for helping families feed their children. When we chatted, she didn’t askabout Luca’s picky eating but about his personality, likes, and dislikes. “Well, Judy, he neverstops playing. He can’t sit still,” I told her. Hearing that, she suggested that rather than focusingon mealtime, I bring food into playtime. She gave me the dinosaur idea, and our family’s approachto eating changed forever and for the better.
