Milk to Meals is a beautiful hardcover book containing almost 300 pages. It is packed with insights and tips on making the transition from ‘milk’ to ‘meals’ one of ease and fun, whilst knowing you will be setting up your baby’s eating habits and delicate digestive system the best way possible.
Nourishing the first 24 months has a profound impact on a child’s health and eating habits in the future. Nutritionally speaking, these are the most impressionable years of life and it’s critical to understand which nutrients your little one needs for optimal growth - this is where we step in!
‘Milk to Meals’ will be your guide every step of the way, providing evidence based information regarding transitioning from mama's milk, advice on choosing a feeding method to suit your family, navigating the top allergenic foods, which nutrients to focus on to meet your baby’s nutritional needs and when to incorporate certain foods in their diet in the most mindful way (plus much more!).
This book also contains 80+ nutrient-dense, whole-food, nutritionist-approved recipes so that you can put your new found knowledge into practice! The recipes are a mix of baby-led weaning finger foods, as well as puree options to suit any feeding style. The book includes age-guides on when we would recommend each food group, and whilst the recipes are aimed towards babies, they have also been created with feeding the whole family in mind (because who has time to make more than one meal!)
Our hope is that the information in this book will provide you with the knowledge and confidence you need to make the best decisions for your baby's introduction to solids. That it will teach you how to nurture their digestion system, meet their nutritional requirements, allow them to develop an adventurous palate and set them (and the whole family) up with good eating habits that will hopefully stay with them for life!
"Luka and Carley’s book is the kind of book that is destined to be the most food stained and dog earred book in your home. I can’t think of a more approachable, clear yet comprehensive roadmap for parents than this. It answers everything you want to know about baby’s first foods, essential nutrient requirements, food allergies, diversifying baby’s appetite, picky eaters, food safety and everything in between. It also includes easy, nutrient-dense recipes designed to support your baby’s developmental milestones. It equips parents to confidently feed their baby as well as nurture a wholesome approach to eating. I have no doubt that you’ll love having their practical, loving, judgment-free approach and calming advice to guide you through your baby’s journey to food."

"This is a must have in any new mumma's home, and it will quickly become your food bible. With the controversial advice out there, this is what should be followed - real, properly prepared food in its most nutrient dense form. Introducing foods to your little one can be daunting, scary, make you question yourself and whether you're nourishing your child enough. This takes all of those fears away. My clients are going to love this, having it all in one and ready to go ahead with introducing foods with confidence! Honestly, this just makes me so excited!"
