This book is intended for all the family to use. It should encourage children to have a go at cooking with their parents. It provides tips and advice on how best to feed your children now, especially with the abundance of readily available junk food around, and how to start enjoying family meal times around the dining tables instead of in front of the television. The author covers the problems of the breakdown of the family unit at mealtimes, looks at supermarkets versus smaller specialist shops and underlines the pleasures that can be had from sitting down to a family meal together.
