Debbie Koenig is a writer specializing in food, parenting, and health & nutrition, and the author of the cookbook Parents Need to Eat Too: Nap-Friendly Recipes, One-Handed Meals & Time-Saving Kitchen Tricks for New Parents (William Morrow, 2012).
She’s written for such publications as Parents, American Baby, Weight Watchers, Fit Pregnancy, and The New York Times, and also writes two blogs: Parents Need to Eat Too, which you’re reading right now, features unpretentious yet sophisticated recipes that please adults and developing eaters; Feed the Parents, which she writes for Weight Watchers, focuses on healthy cooking—and healthful attitudes—for busy families. A Lifetime Member, Koenig lost 100 pounds more than 15 years ago.
In her cookbook, blogs, and freelance work, Koenig has developed hundreds of recipes for the family market, all featuring whole foods with minimal processing or artificial ingredients, and all without being preachy. With warmth and humor, she encourages parents to do their best, and to celebrate life’s imperfections—which for her includes raising one of the pickiest eaters on the planet. Koenig live in Brooklyn, NY, with her husband and their growing-like-a-string-bean son.
