Someone gave me "Sugar free toddlers" it has a couple of good recipes but I wouldn't buy it unless you are desperate. It gave me a couple of ideas but mostly just reminded me of healthy things I already make that DS might like.

I have a few by Annabel Karmel (I think that's how you spell her name). She's a trained chef and so her meals are a bit more labor intensive but my son really liked them as a baby. I really used it more for interesting purees than I do now, when I'm just not up for the effort of making anything too elaborate given my son's toddler whims each day, when he might devour it or just push it away. There were lots of snack ideas in her books and information on nutrition. The best resource for actual baby/toddler nutrition that I found was from a book called Super Baby Foods but I found it to be sort of overwhelming.

A nice place to visit that won't cost you a penny is the wholesome baby foods website. It's a good jumping off point at the very least and there are some toddler things included on the sister site. Hope this helps!
