More simple, delicious and healthy recipes for all the family from the dinner lady who inspired Jamie Oliver and is changing the way our children eat – foreword by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall

This is a wonderful family cookbook with over 120 tasty, easy and practical recipes from the bestselling author of The Dinner Lady for all those kids who are hungry for more!

Jeanette provides quick solutions for busy parents who want to feed their children well. She knows what children really like. There is an update on Jeanette’s latest travels and achievements, plus handy tips and nutritional advice to help you to change the way your children eat.

The emphasis of this book is on the home and eating together – these are recipes that the whole family can enjoy, although there is also a section at the back which gives quantities for 96 that is useful for dinner ladies! Jeanette is making the recipes more adventurous to broaden the kids’ palates so there are salmon fish fingers, curries and fruit smoothies as well as traditional old favourites like Lancashire Hotpot and Sticky Toffee Pudding, all using the best possible ingredients. This book has sections on breakfast, tea and snacks as well as lots of ideas for the main meal of the day. It looks delicious with gorgeous photographs and an attractive yet practical design.
