Description

ABOUT THE BOOK

Mila's Meals: The Beginning & The Basics is an award-winning 500-page collection of over 100 gluten-free, sugar-free and dairy-free wholefood recipes and food ideas for baby's first years (and the rest of the family too).

Part cookbook, part nutrition encyclopedia, part journal of the author's journey into motherhood, Mila's Meals is a call to action for every parent to be conscious of what they are feeding their little ones, providing a guideline on how to go about this as effectively, effortlessly and joyfully as possible. It is as much about learning how and what to feed your little one, as it is about RE-learning how to feed yourself.
