From Leah Garrad-Cole, founder of the prominent Love Child Organics brand of baby and children's foods, comes an all-occasions first book of recipes and parent-tested advice on how to feed your children wholesome and delicious foods that the entire family will enjoy.
It All Begins With Food. That's the Love Child Organics motto, a philosophy that was born of the desire to provide delicious and nutritious foods for babies and children and to encourage a lifelong love of healthy eating. Leah Garrad-Cole's cookbook expands on this mission, providing simple-to-make, healthy recipes for everything from baby foods to baked goods, and finger foods to family meals. You'll find inspiration for preparing the everyday essentials--breakfast, lunch, and dinner--and innovative ways to create healthier versions of processed foods and celebratory treats for special occasions, as well as tips on stocking your pantry so you're ready for anything.
Leah's own experiences as a mother and special education teacher have taught her how and what kids like to eat best. With an unwavering focus on replacing ingredients that have little nutritional value with ones that are nutritionally dense, the book includes a range of delicious recipes, from Cheesy Veggie Mash, Roasted Sweet Potato Fries, Mini Baked Frittatas, and Chunky Chicken Noodle and Superfood Soup, to Overnight Strawberry Cocoa Oatmeal, Omega Monkey Milkshake, and Raspberry Vanilla Heart Cookies. Leah also provides recipes for supermarket favorites, like Cheesy Little Crackers, allowing families to consume homemade versions of everyday staples without having to spend too much time in the kitchen. Her adaptable, easy-going recipes and tips will be invaluable to anyone with young children.
Packed with vibrant photography, up-to-date information, and practical advice on how to encourage healthy family eating, this book will quickly become a go-to guide for cooking with love: of food and family.
