I was invited to the Sprout Right book launch last night and since we don't have any family here to babysit (all in Winnipeg) nor do I want to bother our friends with "Can you babysit?" I came with my over rambunctious, cheery, happy, tot. I let him run loose as Lianne gave me the okay and my night did not stop, thankfully there were other children, okay three, two of them being Lianne's. I was chasing after him all night... Yes people, that was me. I am Mama Ash and that was Charlie. As you can see above when Charlie finally got tired out he had to look through our copy of Sprout Right: Nutrition from Tummy to Toddler. It was a packed event and only managed to get a couple of snippets of pictures as the guests were arriving.
Now enough about me. I must tell you about about the guest of honour from last nights event, Lianne Phillipson-Webb. She is the amazing, smart, beautiful mom, nutritionist and owner of her company Sprout Right and now she can add author to her title.
Sprout Right was started with her passion for good food and good health for mom and baby. She offers personalized one-on-one consultations to address mom’s concerns for you or baby's individual nutritional needs. If you prefer being in a group Sprout Right does workshops that cover topics like introducing your baby to solids, making homemade baby food and what to do after puree.
This book is a must have for all new moms as it takes you into prenatal diet with what foods to eat to establish giving baby the best quality of milk. She also covers post partum foods and nutrients for you to eat and take to help restore your body.
What else is in her book? Not all prenatal vitamins being equal, essential foods to avoid while pregnant and nursing, how to shore up baby's immune system and help avoid allergies, breast feeding info and formula feeding info, why we should avoid the baby isle(Baby Mum Mum? No thank you!), DHA and the importance of essential fatty acids for baby's growth and development plus amazing 75 recipes there is so much! It truly includes great tips for parents from pregnancy to introducing first foods through to toddlerhood.
It is my new favorite and trusted must have resource for all moms.
Husbands, friends, family if you know a mom do get this for her. Did I tell you she has DVD's on how to make baby food? She doesn't miss a beat. Recipe cards are included she is your expert Nutritionist.
Here are a sneak peak at just a couple of her recipes:
Amazing Sweet Amaranth, Immune Boosting Puree, Delicious Lentil Dahl, Pea & Mint Puree
