One-Line Bio

I write candidly, often and with typos on my parenting blog:, part of the homepage. I am also the co-author of the family cookbook: Whining and Dining: Mealtime Survival for Picky Eaters and Families Who Love Them.


Emma Waverman is the mother of two boys, seven and four and a 16-month old girl. She is a food, lifestyle and parenting writer in Toronto.
Eshun Mott has a 7-month old girl and two boys -- six and four. She is a professionally trained chef, recipe developer and food stylist.

Two years ago Eshun and Emma were bonding over their three-year olds all white diets. They were stunned that two people in the food industry had such picky eaters. When they looked for help, the only resources they found scared them or made them feel like terrible parents. And thus, Whining and Dining was born. They wanted a book that was filled with tips, anecdotes, excellent recipes and made other parents grimace with the recognition that feeding kids can be a difficult, chaotic and often, hilarious job.
