Part cookbook, part nutrition encyclopedia, part journal of the author'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 go about this as effectively, effortlessly and joyfully as possible. It is as much about learning how and what to feed your little one, as it is about RE-learning how to feed yourself.
