About the Author
Tamika L. Gardner began crafting homemade baby food as a new mother of two seeking to provide fresh meals beyond what any jar on the shelf could offer. As a thrifty mom who exclusively breastfed both children, purchasing pre-packaged food seemed to go against the grain of natural feeding. Therefore, she relied on advice from pediatricians and old-school mamas to make baby purees from whole ingredients. Her organic recipes have been featured on ABC News, iVillage.com, MetroParent, News and Observer, BlogHer.com, The Stir, and Dot Coms for Moms. Her mission is to encourage parents to nurture healthy children through fresh, whole foods from farm to table.
“Tamika L. Gardner wants your little one to eat well. And with the 300 recipes from The Big Book of Plant-Based Baby Food, there’s something for every fussy eater.”
“If you have ever wanted to make your babies food from scratch but were stumped for ideas, this should be added to your cookbook roster.”
