We promised you that there was something wonderful in the works and now we can finally reveal it. This book, published by Penguin Random House Australia, is so much more than the amazing new recipes (over 100!), the One Handed Cooks book is filled with some of the most up-to-date and practical information for parents and carers. Offering real, practical advice on all areas of feeding from baby to school age, that we hope you will refer to time and time again. We wanted this book to take parents on a feeding journey, from starting solids to finger foods and introducing family foods. We have included all of the frequently asked questions and troubleshoot many common fussy eating and feeding problems before they happen. This is every parents go-to guide for feeding children.

‘Raising a child who has a healthy, positive relationship with food – who enjoys mealtimes, is adventurous and enjoys a wide variety of foods, and who understands basic nutrition – is every parent’s dream.’ – Excerpt from the book.

    Just purchased your fantastic new book!
    Cannot wait to get cracking with these recipes – they look great. My “threenager” has been a domestic terrorist at mealtimes, with her ability to sniff out any green vegetable smuggled in her food to her ever increasing list of demands at the dinner table. It has left me feeling exhausted and deflated and quite frankly, at a loss as to what to try next. Your recipes have renewed my enthusiasm for cooking – not only do they look devine but also appear very accessible for the overtired mummy to make. Thanks again for helping get us back on track x
