"Smart Bites for Baby" By Mika Shino: Food That Promotes Brain Development! by 30Second Mom Likes This
"Smart Bites for Baby" by Mika Shino has 300 recipes for babies and toddlers, and meals for the family. After her son was diagnosed with a debilitating liver disease, Shino began to cook using a Japanese technique that stimulates brain development using a variety of flavors, texture, colors and temperature.
Because babies understand the world through their senses, eating became an educational adventure and kick-started "Smart Bites for Baby," which looks at food as a developmental tool.
