Chapter 1 : My Story, Your Story

What’s Inside

Plan

Advice, activities, stories and thought-provoking reasons for meal planning in your own style (and shopping lists, too!)

 

Prepare

A life-changing way to read a recipe, as well as how to get kids in the kitchen safely and happily, and a go-to list of kitchen essentials.

SERVE

Covers the three main ways we can serve meals and the scientific reasons to choose ‘family style’

Enjoy

How and why you should stop talking about food if you want kids to eat.  10 great dinner games that cut down fights, a simple guide to conversation, and why it’s as important to feed children’s brains and hearts as it is their bellies.

Clean

Why are you still doing all the cooking and all the cleaning? Maybe you’re happy that way! But if you’re not, this chapter gives you the reassurance you need to change things and help the future adults your children will become.

Recipes

This section includes meals from real family kitchens as well as quick ‘fakeaways’ like butter chicken, and a focus on cooking methods – including Soup Chemistry and Hurry Curry – because methods make meals!

This is a mealbook.

It’s not a cookbook, or a parenting book, although you will find both recipes and family experiences in its pages.

Do you dread dinnertime?

Have a fridge full of ingredients but nothing to eat?

Is your dinner table covered with laundry and paperwork?

Do you own dozens of cookbooks filled with “quick”, “family friendly” recipes (that you never use?) 

Are you desperate to have a nice meal with your family, or at least enjoy your own damn dinner?

Then The Flawsome Family Mealbook is for you.

About the Author

Hi, I’m Bec

a writer, home cook, early childhood communication specialist, and a far-from-perfect mum-of-three awesome teens who don’t like every single food on the planet.

 

” I grew up in a family that only ate together on Christmas Day, when the table inevitably became a battleground of relative strangers. I didn’t want my own family to fall into the same habits, but mealtimes were still a struggle until I learned one simple thing that flipped everything I’d ever been told upside down.

There’s huge pressure on us as parents to make our kids eat well, eat enough, eat nicely, but almost all the advice you get has it backwards. We’re told that if our kids eat their peas we’ll be happy, but the reality is that if meal times are happy there’s an excellent chance your kids will eat their peas.

I couldn’t have written The Flawsome Family Mealbook, or created the UnYucky program when my kids were little – I was too busy, too tired, and stretched way too thin covering everyone else’s needs and barely holding it together myself. I still feel like that sometimes, but I can see the habits we developed as a young family help hold us together now as my children become young adults. “
