GIVEAWAY: Win a copy of the new My Fussy Eater cookbook

I’m very excited to bring you a giveaway to win a copy of My Fussy Eater by Ciara Attwell which was launched last week.

My Fussy Eater cookbook cover

My Fussy Eater is a recipe book filled with over 100 quick and easy recipes designed to help feed even the fussiest of families.

It covers breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, family meals and snacks, mixing more traditional recipes with others which are original and creative, so something for everyone.

Who would love the My Fussy Eater cookbook

The My Fussy Eater cookbook follows the style of the blog with the same name, and is packed full of simple, family-friendly recipes. It’s perfect for you if you want…

  • to cook fresh food but don’t have a lot of time.
  • recipes that use everyday ingredients where you don’t need fancy equipment or loads of washing up when you’re done.
  • to cook child-friendly food that adults will also enjoy (no faffing around cooking separate meals for everyone)
  • to squeeze an extra bit of goodness into the food you’re feeding your family to help ensure they’re eating a healthy balanced diet.

As well as over 100 recipes the book also includes Ciara’s 10 top tips for managing fussy eating, 4 weeks’ worth of meal plans using recipes from the book and essential kitchen equipment and store cupboard ingredients.

Each recipe is also labelled as to whether it’s gluten-free, dairy-free, freezer-friendly (and there are freezing instructions where relevant in the recipes), batch-cook recipes and those recipes which the kids can get involved in helping to make. There’s some lovely pictures in the book of Ciara’s two children helping her out in the kitchen and you can see how enjoyable it is for them.

Testing out recipes from the My Fussy Eater cookbook

If you follow me on Instagram you would have noticed that my stories last week were full of recipes from Ciara’s book which I’d been testing out. In case you missed it here’s a sample of what I tried…

Strawberry Banana Bread (which would you believe is for breakfast – yum!)

Veggie Pizza Rolls Ups

Raspberry Chia Jam which was then used in these Raspberry Chia Crumble Squares

I also made her Smoky Meatball Pasta Bake but we were too hungry to wait for me to photograph it so we ate it all instead 🙂

Fortunately Nicky from Kitchen Sanctuary took a fantastic photograph when she tried the recipe and said I could share it with you all. If you head on over to her site you can read her review of My Fussy Eater and get the recipe for these meatballs.

I found all of the recipes in the My Fussy Eater cookbook really easy to follow and they needed no complicated ingredients, equipment or techniques. Best of all they went down really well with my whole family. Daniel has decided that the Raspberry Chia Crumble Squares are now his joint favourite treat with my brownies (although the Raspberry Chia Crumble Squares are much healthier so he’s more likely to get them!).

If you like the look of Ciara’s recipes you can also find lots more on her website or in her recipe app

  66. My 2 and a half he old little boy went from being a fantastic eater to now being really fussy 5 or so months ago. I struggle to get him to eat any ‘wet’ food, especially with mince beef in ie. cottage pie or lasagna.

  67. I struggle to get my son to eat eggs

  68. I struggle with everything, it’s so frustrating. My 2 yr old daughter eats when she wants, usually only broccoli. I’m glad it’s vegetables but love these recipes to keep me motivated

  69. Tuna Fish – They run and hide when I open a can.

  70. Brussel sprouts! I’m the only one that likes them x

  73. None of my 3 kids will eat anything made using minced meat no no bolognese/chilli/lasagne for us

    And my husband is the best salad dodger in the world!!!

  78. Fish! One of my children will eat fish fingers but the others won’t touch fish at all.

  79. I cannot get any of the kids to even try mashed potato!

  80. At the moment I’m struggling to get my nearly 3 year old son to eat anything that has pasta in it! It’s strange because he used to eat baby food with pasta in it (tomato based) when he was weaned. I’d therefore love to discover flavoursome pasta dishes that I could try with him (try myself haha).

    I’m always on the look out for wholesome and healthy recipe ideas as I struggle to get variety into my sons diet at times.
