An update of the bestselling guide on cooking nutritious, whole food meals for parents and their children
For over 15 years, Cynthia Lair's classic cookbook has been the best source for parents who want to cook one healthy meal for the entire family. With more than 200 recipes, this revised fourth edition teaches the basics of introducing a balanced whole foods diet—from grains and beans to meat, dairy, fruits, and vegetables—to your home.
Feeding the Whole Family includes information on breastfeeding, beginning babies on solid foods, food allergies and intolerances, raising healthy eaters, and the importance of sharing nourishing meals as a family. Each recipe comes with instructions on how to adapt meals so that babies who are just starting solids—as well as older babies—can enjoy the dish, while children and adults eat a more complex version to satisfy their palates. Parents will also find simple solutions for packing healthy lunch boxes and involving kids in the meal preparation process.
Informative and full of practical advice, Feeding the Whole Family will help take the stress out of finding healthy recipes everyone will like—so you can sit down, relax, and enjoy mealtime with your loved ones.
