Melinda Messenger shares her favourite family recipes for simple and delicious food that everyone can enjoy. Cooking for a family throws up so many problems and dilemmas: making sure your children eat enough fruit and vegetables, eating together as a family, meal planning, avoiding processed foods, feeding hungry children when you're pressed for time. But cooking and eating should also be about having fun, sharing food experiences and yes, sometimes it's about treating yourself to the things you like best. Melinda takes a straightforward approach to cooking for a family - if you can get your children involved in cooking and eating from an early age then you are giving them a great start in life. Passionate about good food and healthy ingredients, Melinda also knows that cooking dishes that are quick and easy to prepare - and that your children will actually enjoy - is essential. With over 100 recipes and plenty of lovely photographs of Melinda and her family relaxing, eating and cooking at home, this book is a must for any busy parent.
