For nearly 15 years, Cynthia Lair's iconic cookbook Feeding the Whole Family has been the source for parents who want to cook one healthy meal for the entire family, including babies. Feeding the Whole Family starts with the basics of creating a whole foods diet, from understanding grains and beans to determining what meats are acceptable to eat. Lair then applies these lessons to cooking for young children and babies aged six months and older. In each recipe, Lair offers special instruction on how to adapt it so that younger children can enjoy the dish while parents can eat a more complicated version. All recipes utilize easy-to-find ingredients, are simple to follow, and will be enjoyable for both child and parent. With a new foreword by Mothering magazine's editor and founder Peggy O'Mara, Feeding the Whole Family is a necessary staple for all families.

"This book is a great educational resource for a unique approach on cooking for your family. Lair, once a nutrition counselor, walks you through her simple recipes that every member of your family will enjoy, as well, provides nutritional information for healthy eating. In every recipe, she offers suggestions on how to prepare the dish so that younger children can enjoy the meal with a quick alternative to the parents more sophisticated version. The recipes are creatively written, with beautiful illustrations."
