Reviews from the 2nd Edition: "I have been feeding my family out of this book for a while and everything we have tried has been a success: fast, healthful, tasty, and appealing to children. This is just about the perfect cookbook." ---Michelle Bro "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." --Local Haven "A must-have for the family kitchen."--425 Magazine "It feels good to nurture your family with a homecooked meal, and the new, revised edition of Feeding the Whole Family from Cynthia Lair is full of recipes to inspire you." --Colorado Parent "A classic family favorite...satisfying even the pickiest of eaters." --ParentMap "Enormously helpful in the kitchen." --Soule Mama "This fully revised update of a classic title is an excellent primer for whole-foods cooking at home." --Booklist "A spectacular chef." --Art Zone with Nancy Guppy "Cozy up." --Bainbridge Island Review "Nourishing meals." --Seattle Times
