Have you met eebee? Well, eebee is the star of eebee’s adventures, a series which feature eebee, the baby’s baby, along with infants 6 months and older who play and discover in a world that is real, engaging, and rich with possibilities.
eebee’s adventures focus on behaviors—what babies and toddlers can and want to do— while offering practical and playful insights and ideas for how and when parents can join the act.
My son and I recently had the chance to review a great new book from eebee’s adventures – Mix & Mash: Adventures in the Kitchen for Baby & You It’s just been released and is the first-ever cooking with your baby book!
Normally I would say you’ve probably read about all the problems I’ve had recently with my picky little eater but I’ve been spending so much time trying to resolve the situation that I haven’t even had time to blog about it. Let alone blog about the fact that he wants to help me do EVERYTHING. Cook, clean, do laundry. I have to admit that lately I had been getting a bit overwhelmed with all the help I was receiving. So when the opportunity came to review the book I thought to myself “can this really work?”. I let him help with everything else, why not in the kitchen as well?
The book features 6 baby-friendly recipes for children 6+ months, accompanied by a dvd that shows you just how to go about letting your baby get involved in the kitchen. Up until now letting him help in the kitchen isn’t something I had considered but these recipes are so simple that you’ll wonder why you hadn’t come up with them yourself.
After checking out the book to be honest I was still a little nervous about letting him help. That’s where the dvd comes in. When Vincent and I watched the dvd he loved eebee. He kept saying “baby baby”. I thought it was a bit strange how he knew she was a baby, but he did. The dvd is sort of like a how-to guide and totally worked to reassure me that it wasn’t hard at all to get your child involved and have some fun while doing it!
It’s my opinion that this book would make a perfect gift for any parent who’s toddler is just getting to the 6+ month stage and beyond. My son is 18 months and these recipes were perfect for him. Even though he has a mouth full of teeth, these recipes are good for children with or without teeth.
The only complaint I have about the book is that it’s not big enough! I hope they’ll come out with more baby-parent cookbook’s in the future.
