Catherine and Mila are a mother-daughter team on a mission to bring you the beginning and the basics about food intolerance and how to deal with it in a nutritious and tasty way. They cover all the bases: sugar-, dairy- and gluten-free. The what, why and how in one convenient place for new parents trying to negotiate the tricky business of feeding their little ones nutritious meals they will love, minus the allergens, especially in that delicate stage of your baby’s first year. There is a blog with new recipes (www.milasmeals.co.za/blog), and a 500-page book with over 100 recipes, colour photos for each one and so much valuable info.
‘Mila’s Meals: The Beginning & The Basics’ is a 500-page collection of over 100 gluten-free, sugar-free and dairy-free wholefood recipes and food ideas for baby’s first years (and the rest of the family too).
Part cookbook, part nutrition encyclopedia, part journal of Catherine’s journey into motherhood, Mila’s Meals is a call to action for every parent to be conscious of what they are feeding their little ones, providing a guideline on how to achieve this as effectively, effortlessly and as joyfully as possible.
With colour photos for every recipe and a wealth of information including:
