Mila's Meals: The Beginning & The Basics Paperback – November 24, 2015
"At last, a wonderfully creative and thoroughly well researched work of immensely helpful and beneficial guidance, for us as parents!
In today's information age nutritional concepts can be all too confusing, especially when the information is focused on 'what' to eat, rather than exploring and understanding the 'why'.
This book introduces important and comprehensible 'why's' of applying food as your medicine, while at the same time, offering truly sumptuous and easy to follow recipes."
- Dr. Jon Morley (MBChB)

A useful, informative guide to help young mothers feed their children healthy food alternatives, food that not only is safe for the child, but looks good and tastes delicious. Catherine Barnhoorn's 500-page book, Mila's Meals: The Beginning and the Basics is a must study, must enjoy, healthy eating alternative not only for feeding children, but also for feeding ourselves as adults. Everything you could possibly ask about the difficult food industry is answered in this book. Catherine leads the reader through her experiences and sets us up with a course of action: first and foremost, read the labels and be aware of what you are eating. She complements her discussions with concise charts of the good and the bad in different food groups. She lays out the research compiled on the subject of food intolerances and allergies, and she provides a great resource of recipes, from snacks to main course meals to yummy desserts, and all that you could possibly want in between. The glossary is succinct and very thorough and useful. This is a must have guide for all young mothers and for anyone who wants to eat healthily and stay healthy." - Emily-Jane Hills Orford for Readers' Favorite

This book will shed light on how you look at your child’s moods, foods, toxic exposures, colic, constipation, ear infections, runny nose, asthma and so much more. When we know the reason why our kids are not feeling well, it’s so much easier to find solutions. With all the things we have to do as a parent, we forget to teach our children how important self care is as they grow. Well baby makes a well adult!
Plus, I found the conversation between Catherine and Mila so heartwarming. Thank you Catherine for sharing your love, truth and your knowledge. New mothers need this book!
So many mothers take so much time decorating nurseries or children's bedrooms, or choosing the cutest outfits. I feel it is absolutely tragic that often, unless your child displays some form of dairy intolerance or food allergy, one does not think to pay as much attention to what they put in their child's body. Personally, I would rather decrease my child's chance of developing depression or cancer and optimising their true potential than have those tiny cute pair of All-Star baby shoes. Great to have both if you can though ;)
So please, don't even doubt to purchase this book. It is worth every single cent. Then I challenge you to find the passion in yourself that wants the best for your child and start learning these new food names and start cooking.......the recipes are uncomplicated and so detailed even the most inexperienced cook would be able to make them!
Someone once said live as if you have had a heart attack or stroke and you never will. I think we could all take a leaf out of this book (pardon the pun!)
