About the Author
Rachel Boyett posts her family veggie and vegan recipes on her popular Instagram @littleveggieeats and blog littleveggieeats.com. She is a mother of three and a lifetime vegetarian. When she started weaning she quickly realized that rather than being an extra level of work, weaning was actually really fun and a great opportunity to get creative. Her own style of cooking and recipes has evolved as her family has grown and now she’s a firm believer in one meal for all the family.
