The go-to guide for any parent
I really struggled to find sound, nutritional advice with how to feed my kids healthy food (that they’ll love). I use his book every other day! The recipes have been a been a huge success with the whole family and I’ve learnt so much about nutrition - I’ve started eating much healthier myself. Mandy’s advice comes with no judgement so I feel free to make the changes that suit our family (and not feel guilty about the rest!). It’s a cookbook, it’s a guide, it’s an education. Love!
Delicious and helpful!
This has become my go to book for meal planning. I’ve done a tonne of online healthy eating, fussy eaters, low tox and wholesome food courses (!) and this book is the best overview of the lot with fabulous recipes to match. My kids love choosing recipes from the book to make and learning about what makes them healthy. Love, love, love!
