So much more than just a cookbook!

Described as “The Tome”, it covers The Why, What and How to begin your little one’s lifelong relationship with food and how the whole family can follow a gluten-free, dairy-free AND refined sugar-free way of eating.

‘Mila’s Meals: The Beginning & The Basics’ covers:

The Why

  • The truth behind common infant food fallacies
  • An exposé of what is really in that convenient, ready-made food and the affect it has on your child physically, mentally and emotionally
  • The importance and maintenance of gut health
  • Reasons to say “No” to gluten, dairy and sugar

The What

  • Detailed chart of essential nutrients, the role they play in physical, mental and emotional health and which foods you can find them in
  • A detailed ingredient glossary explaining the sourcing, preparation, cooking, nutrient content and health benefits of all 156 ingredients used in the book
  • An Appendix with detailed information on The Worst Offenders List of food additives – what they are, their very many disguises (I mean, names), where they are hiding (I mean used) and the effect they have on the human body (physically, mentally and emotionally).

The How

  • How to feed your child (and youself) nutrient-dense foods with over 100 (mostly uncomplicated) recipes made with easy-to-find ingredients
  • ALL recipes are gluten-free, dairy-free AND refined sugar-free
  • They also have #sneakyveggies that not even the fussiest eater will know about!
  • A reintroduction of traditional foods and food preparation techniques (like sauerkraut, slow-cooked bone broths as well as how and why to soak grains)
  • Do-able meals for busy / working parents – food can be made in bulk and frozen

Additional Very Useful Features

  • Includes useful charts: ‘What to Feed When Food Introduction Chart’, ‘The Dirty Dozen’ food list, ‘The Worst Offenders’ food additives & more
  • Features colour photos for every recipe (so even a tired, mushy-mommy brain can digest the information and make a quick decision about what’s for dinner!)
  • White space for tired mommy eyes – and note-making as you learn
  • Caters for those fussy eaters
  • Learn about superfoods
  • Re-learn how to feed yourself
  • Advice for feeding the soul too because no amount of good food will nourish a starving soul
