LoveReading Expert Review of How to Grow Your Family

Leith's trained chef and founder of Instagram's At Dad's Table our favourite foodie father Adam Shaw shares his delicious, budget-friendly recipes to take you from pregnancy through new parenting to meals for the whole family, bringing fun and flavour back to the table.

When pregnant, Shaw is right, food is framed in negatives, what you can't eat when you're pregnant rather than eating food that will make you feel good. And so At Dad's Table was born...different recipes for different trimesters when the nutritional requirements change. From eating well in the secret trimester, to a spotlight on six awesome folate-rich pesto recipes, I almost wanted to be pregnant again to try the recipes out and feel their impact. And I will absolutely be thrusting this book at all of my pregnant friends.

With over 110 recipes beautifully presented in this hardback book, Shaw presents his food in a no-nonsense, inclusive and non-condescending way. The book is bursting with delectable and nourishing recipes to enjoy throughout pregnancy, breastfeeding, weaning and beyond. My favourite section was eating well as a tired new parent with a spotlight on one-handed foods and healthy dips and spreads for when you can't put baby down. Shaw has thought of everything for fresh, tasty and nutritious family eating including batch cooking and quick high-energy meals. 

With brunch, main meals and dessert recipes for every mood and every stage of parenthood, this book is about focusing on what you can eat, and giving you delicious fuel for every stage of your journey.

A brilliant book with recipes to feed your family at  every stage of your parenting cycle and with most recipes on the table in 30 minutes, there's no excuse not to eat well, eat healthily and grow your family.

Adam Shaw Press Reviews

'I wish this book had been around during my pregnancies. Tom and I would've found making these meals together so enjoyable! Food is so important, especially when going through pregnancy, early parenthood and feeding hungry little mouths. This book has something delicious for all.' - Giovanna Fletcher

'Full of simple dishes for pregnant women and new mums.' - Heat Magazine

'...[a] practical and charming debut, a culinary primer for growing families ... a testament to Shaw's own experience supporting his partner in the infant-care trenches, while his chops as a trained chef appear in such subtle touches as a drizzle of parsley oil for roasted cod. The struggle of new parenthood is real, and this is sure to be a welcome balm.' - Publishers Weekly

A game-changer for us Dads... makes cooking for our partners during their pregnancy less drab and more exciting whilst giving you the satisfaction that you're doing your bit to ensure the healthy development of your unborn child
