Smart Food for Smart Tots

Egg drop soup with corn and tofu? Sautéed lotus roots and arugula? Provence-inspired mussels with thyme, fennel and cherry tomatoes? Yes, Smart Bites for Babies really is for babies (and toddlers). Mika Shino, born in Japan, learned the tastes of all different countries as she worked for the United Nations and traveled around the world. Not only do her recipes introduce foreign flavors to tiny tongues, but they also use nutritious ingredients important for brain function and overall growth. And hey, you might discover a new favorite food for yourself, too!

Here are some of our favorite recipes from her new book:

Roasted Beets With Goat Cheese
