The question is as old as parenting itself: How can new moms and dads eat well when all their time and energy is spent on baby? Finally, we have the answer!
Specifically designed for frazzled, sleep-deprived parents, every recipe in Parents Need to Eat, Too is nutritious, delicious, satisfying, and EASY.

Inside you'll find:
- Meals you can eat with one hand
- Recipes for the new parent's best friend: the slow cooker
- More ambitious recipes, broken down into simple stages to perform while baby naps
- “Un-Recipes” for parents who can't cook at all
- Recipes that support breastfeeding
- Advice from experts, including a pediatric dietitian and a lactation consultant
Here are real solutions for the real problems new parents face in the kitchen. Through comforting, honest, and essential help for stressed out, undernourished moms and pops, Parents Need To Eat Too ensures that nobody will go hungry!
Parents Need to Eat Too has been named one of the Best Cookbooks of 2012 by Leite’s Culinaria, whose Editor-in-Chief Renee Schettler Rossi called it the “What to Expect After You’re Expecting” and said that the book “savvily and sassily helps you extend the efficiency of any time spent in the kitchen.”

This is probably the sixth copy I've purchased - I give it to every friend I know expecting a baby! It's actually great for non-parents too -- anyone who wants to cook at home but doesn't have endless hours to do it.
Thank you, Deborah Koenig, for giving parents everywhere the courage to eat good food too!
Here's why I don't give it 5 stars: the recipes are good, but not amazing. They're solid, parent friendly, not-too-fussy, but more fancy than just opening a few cans and jars dishes, but 5 star worthy? Nope. Also, My husband, who is 6'3' and likes to eat has mentioned that some of the meals that I've made out of this just don't satisfy as much as he would like - they feel like snacks to him.
So, would I recommend this to a friend? Sure. Would I buy it for them as a gift? Maybe. Do I regret buying it? Nope. When I want hands-down-amazing food, will I turn here? Probably not.
Hope that's helpful.
The recipes are easy, tasty, nutritious. My favorites vary by season, but we make the honey and soy roasted salmon at least once a week. My kids (2&4) LOVE it. We're also big fans of the white bean and tuna salad, the veggie lasagna, the sweet potato and black bean chili is another staple.
