Give your freezer a rest and start cooking fresh! Tyler Florence, the Food Network veteran, restaurateur (he's opened four restaurants in the past year), and founder of the Sprout line of baby foods, is making it his mission to introduce tots to the wonders of vegetables as early as their first bite of solid food.
The father of three's new cookbook, Start Fresh: Your Child's Jump Start to Lifelong Healthy Eating, is more than just a baby food cookbook packed with beautiful photos and accompanying recipes, it's a guide to introduce families to a healthier way of eating. The bulk of the recipes are designed to feed the whole family, with instructions for making the meal appropriate for infants and toddlers. I broke bread with the chef yesterday and asked him about his veggie-fueled philosophy. See what he had to say (and learn the secret to his one-pan lasagna) in this slideshow!
