Adam Shaw is a Leith’s trained cook and father of two. When his wife first found out she was pregnant, Adam was frustrated by the lack of guidance available for parents on what to eat, except vague statements like ‘eat more greens’. In response, he created At Dad’s Table on Instagram, where he shares his beautiful baby- and toddler-friendly food creations with over 30,000 followers.

‘I wish this book had been around during my pregnancies. Tom and I would’ve found making these meals together so enjoyable! Food is so important, especially when going through pregnancy, early parenthood and feeding hungry little mouths. This book has something delicious for all.’ - Giovanna Fletcher

'Full of simple dishes for pregnant women and new mums.' - Heat Magazine

'...[a] practical and charming debut, a culinary primer for growing families ... a testament to Shaw’s own experience supporting his partner in the infant-care trenches, while his chops as a trained chef appear in such subtle touches as a drizzle of parsley oil for roasted cod. The struggle of new parenthood is real, and this is sure to be a welcome balm.' - Publishers Weekly

"A game-changer for us Dads... makes cooking for our partners during their pregnancy less drab and more exciting whilst giving you the satisfaction that you’re doing your bit to ensure the healthy development of your unborn child" - Dads Net
