“Susan Tate’s Into the Mouths of Babes sets the highest standard for books on how to nourish our little ones. Her work is comprehensive, heartfelt, informative, and easy to read and implement. Susan elegantly weaves together all the practical details that parents need to know to feed a child in the best possible way: kitchen set-up, recipes, shopping, nutritional insights, food allergies, and much more. But this book will provide you with more than just great nutrition strategies. It teaches parents how to raise a child who’s healthy in body, mind, heart, and soul. Every mom deserves a copy of this wonderful book, and every newborn deserves to benefit from the wisdom that Susan Tate has to share. Highly recommended!”

“Whether one adopts the entire approach or merely uses some of the ideas herein, this book is a prime resource for parents who need to tailor their children’s diets away from the high load of sugared, salted, processed, chemically laden, high-animal-protein-containing foods to the wiser food choices spelled out here. Healthy food for kids need not be sterile, flat, and no fun. Susan Tate has seen to it that tasty and healthy foods can be primary staples, a vital ingredient for optimal nourishment.”

“As a health coach and mother of two, I come from a nutrition and health-centered background and feel I have a steady grasp on what it means to feed my children healthy foods. AND I feel reinvigorated and refocused by the information and inspiration Susan offers in every page and recipe. Her book is brimming with practical tips for feeding your children—from breastfeeding to introducing solids to making your own yogurt—and steeped in spiritual principles, what she calls the Seven Sacred Nutrients. Susan emphasizes self-care as a key to ensuring our children develop healthy views on food and body image, stating, ‘Providing your child with the best nourishment possible may mean it’s not always about the food.’ Reading this book is like having a loving godmother in your kitchen, holding your hand while you learn to deeply enjoy feeding your family, encouraging and uplifting you as a mother or father set with the daunting task of raising a healthy person into the world. Her non-judgmental and holistic approach to healthy cooking empowers parents to embrace this adventure, with a food mill in one hand and a spice jar filled with Love in the other. Thank you, Susan, from the bottom of my Mama Bear heart.”
