How to Grow Your Family

From pregnancy to new parents - one meal at a time



Delectable and nourishing recipes to enjoy throughout pregnancy, breastfeeding, weaning and beyond.

This is the first cookbook of its kind: a collection of delicious and wholesome recipes to accompany expecting and new parents all the way through from pregnancy and into new parenthood. Created by Instagram's At Dad's Table, a Leith's trained chef and dad of two, these ingenious, budget-friendly recipes nourish baby and parents. During an exciting yet exhausting time the recipes are designed to make you feel happy and positive about the food you're eating by focussing on what you can eat rather than what you can't.

This is your comprehensive collection of healthy meals to nurture a growing family, with over 110 scrumptious and international, vegetable-packed recipes. From the first trimester of pregnancy until toddlerhood, each chapter highlights the important nutrients needed during each stage, written in partnership with a qualified nutritionist. As nutritional requirements and appetite changes from trimester to trimester, so do the recipes.

Learn how to make energy-rich meals to support breastfeeding, and master a few simple tricks like batch-cooking and one-hand dishes when you can't put baby down. Advice is given for weaning, first foods and combining flavours as well as recipes for finger foods and healthy food for baby to eat on the go. Finally, the book concludes with family recipes that can be enjoyed together by everyone, young or old.
