Reclaim the family dinner! In Feeding a Family, nutritionist and mom Sarah Waldman lays out all the tools you need to break out of the mealtime rut and turn dinner into a nutritionally fulfilling and happy occasion—despite busy schedules, long work days, and picky eaters. Through forty complete meals, you’ll discover hearty dinners the whole family will love, including:

· A meal for using up the best summer garden produce: Make-ahead Zucchini, Beef, and Haloumi Cheese Skewers with Chimichurri Sauce paired with Tomato, Peach, and Red Onion Panzanella and Lemon-Blackberry Custard
· A cozy and comforting dinner for a frenzied fall day: Creamy Tomato and Spinach Soup with Grilled Cheese Croutons and Pear Pie in Cornmeal Crust
· The perfect meal for the busiest night of the week: Slow Cooker Indian Butter Chicken with Sweet Peas and Lemon-Pecan Shortbread Cookies
· A warming (and fun) winter meal: One-pot Slurpee Noodle Bowls with simple Chocolate, Peanut Butter, and Date Truffles for dessert
· Sunday suppers for when you have a bit more time to play in the kitchen, such as Homemade Pasta with Heirloom Tomato Sauce and Pavlova with Blueberries

With suggestions for including older kids in mealtime prep, tips for feeding baby, and ideas for extending ingredients for “tomorrow’s dinner,” Feeding a Family is a playbook that includes the whole family.

One of THE best cookbooks I have ever had the pleasure of reading. I can't wait to buy it - both a copy for my library and a copy for my own shelf. Gorgeously photographed recipes that are healthy, family and time friendly, and versatile. Each recipe includes what parts of the cooking kids can help with and what parts can be modified into baby food. It is so refreshing to read a cookbook written by a woman who is juggling family and work just like I am, and I love expanding my repertoire with fresh healthy and easy recipes tested by a family just like mine. All of the recipes I've tried have been foolproof and delicious. A joy to read and a greater joy to cook from.

This book is everything a family needs, not just the typical family unit but couples or large families can also gain a lot from reading this book.

As soon as I opened it I was already impressed, anyone that has handy suggestions for planing, shopping and preparation has won my heart. I have always been the type of person who likes a well stocked pantry so I really enjoyed looking at the master list for pantry items in this book, I was happy to see a few of my solid stocked items and favourites on the list....such as Sriracha, red lentils and diced tomatoes.

One of my other most loved parts of the book is that the recipes are sectioned in season order, I find this a convenient way to use a cook book. The recipes are practical (i'm not an awesome cook so I like that I could cook them), family friendly yet innovative, and have useful hints for what could be prepared for the following evening (genius).

There is a beautiful mix of photos of family and food, the page with roasted carrots were looking so mouthwatering that I wanted them on a plate in front of me there and then. The book feels very personal and the added touch of ways to incorporate the meal into a baby friendly version shows that this book is truly for the family unity.

Thank you to the author Sarah Waldman for keeping it real and achievable.

This is a great guide for parents who are wanting to feed whole foods to their families. The photography is beautiful and the text adds a personal touch. The recipes are healthy and enticing. There are many recipes that I would like to try.

Sarah Waldman has created a beautiful and thoughtful cookbook that inspires families to cook healthy meals every night of the week. In sections by season, Waldman offers up recipes for healthy and tasty pizza, pasta, tacos, soups, desserts, and more. I love that she took on restaurant fare, slow-cooker meals, as well as planning entire meals- main, side and dessert - so that all is taken care of for readers. There are tips for using leftovers, and for including the infants in mealtime. The photos are lovely, if a bit sparse, and there are plenty of both meaty and meatless recipes to please everyone at the table.

Feeding a Family by Sarah Waldman is a nice cookbook for families to prepare meals together. I love the concept, and many of the recipes seem interesting enough that I would want to try it. Photos are gorgeous, though I do wish there were more photos of the completed meals.

This is full with fantastic meals that are cost-effective and don't take up loads of time. Have already made some of the recipes and they've gone down a treat!

A great cookbook broken down into meals for each season of the year. Most meals are set to feed a family of 4, so smaller families could always have leftovers. Many recipes also have suggestions for what to do with leftovers in that case. I love the format of this cookbook, and believe any family would enjoy this book for their culinary collection.
