It’s really rather good, full of good recipe ideas and practical ways to do what it says on the tin (or in the title!). There are menu plans, recipes, shortcuts and dozens of ideas for every meal, together with tried and tested tips to help you save your valuable time and money.
It also goes into how to save food and avoid waste – a very green and frugal mindset to get into. With estimates of Britons wasting on average £600 worth of food each year there are lots of ways to avoid this, and this book will help you to do so.

Through Amazon you can pick up both new and second hand copies for as little as a penny plus postage.
Amazon Reviews of How to Feed Your Whole Family:
“I bought this book when the credit crunch kicked into our family shopping budget and was amazed at how much money I saved each week! The recipes are amazingly simple to follow and the ingredients is very cheap (I bought Jamie’s Ministry of Food at the same time and by comparison I found his recipes to be complicated and more importantly, the ingredients he uses are actually very expensive!)
My kids are very fussy eaters and at first I was sure they would turn their noses up. Instead I found clean plates and requests for seconds!
If you cant cook – this book is for you. If you find it difficult keeping to a food shopping budget – this book is for you. If you want to give your family a healthy balanced diet without force feeding them spinach – this book is for you.
If you want a book with pretty pictures in it of celebrity chefs and chums with about one recipe that you’ll actually use – this book isn’t for you.”
