Recipe book for babies with congenital heart disease

For lots of different reasons, weight gain and feeding problems are common amongst babies with congenital heart disease. We have heard from parents that much of the online advice does not give enough information about weight gain and the transition on to food.

This recipe book is the first in a series, providing practical advice on how to get the most out of every mouthful. The book has been written and created by Dr Luise Marino (RD, PhD) and the Southampton Hospital Charity.
