More About the Author
children's food and nutrition and champions the cornerstone message that creating a healthy diet for your children is crucial to their healthy development
A mother of three children, Annabel was inspired to write children's cookbooks following the death of her first child Natasha. Although the illness was not diet related, Annabel was determined to give her second child the best possible start, seeking out only the healthiest foods. Annabel spent two years researching child nutrition and development and interviewing leading UK pediatricians and child nutritionists. She realized that no one had really explored the truth about what babies should and could eat and naturally started creating recipes herself that were both delicious and healthy. She is (resolute) passionate about helping parents provide their babies with fresh food and providing solutions for busy mums who want to feed their family a healthy meal.
With her imaginative approach to creating healthy and delicious food, Annabel is the expert in getting your child, no matter how fussy, to eat a healthier diet ' without them even noticing! She makes it easy to prepare fresh baby food and has developed (tricks) ways to improve children's nutrition on a daily basis, from hiding vegetables in other foods, packing powerhouse lunchboxes and creating healthy junk food . All the recipes are tested on children after all if it doesn't taste good they wont eat it'
Annabel has written 16 books. Her first book the Healthy Baby Meal Planner was published in the US in 1991 by Simon and Schuster and has become the authoritative guide on feeding babies and children. Her best-selling books in the US also include First Meals, Lunchboxes, 100 Top Baby Purees, Favorite Family Meals, The Mom and Me Cookbook. Impressively, every single recipe has been conceived and cooked in Annabel's own kitchen.
A household name in the UK has enabled Annabel to develop ranges for feeding babies and toddlers, food preparation equipment, children's food, baking and party ware. Her recipes are so popular that UK supermarkets now stock a range of her meals. (Annabel is currently working with US manufacturers to launch innovative product ranges for the US market) no not yet
With books sales of over 3 million worldwide, this is likely to grow fast as four new books are being published in the US this year including Baby's first Year Album, The Toddler Cookbook ,Baby and Toddler Food Diary and the Fussy Eaters Recipe Book
Annabel travels frequently to the US and has appeared on many TV programmes including the Today Show, Regis and Kelly, the View, (Rosie O'Donnell Show) NO, ABC Eyewitness News, CBS Early Show and also writes for national US newspapers and magazines including Child Magazine, New York Daily News, American Baby, Working Mother, Quick and Simple and Parents.
In June 2006, Annabel was awarded an MBE, Member of the British Empire, by the Queen in her Birthday Honours List for her outstanding work in the field of child nutrition.

My daughter is now 2 years 3 month old and I am still using receipes on a regualr basis from this book to cook dinner for the whole family.
I highly recommened, especially for first time moms, who wonder what to make for thir child besides steamed carrots and broccoli. Very healthy receipes that taste AWESOME!!!!
The book is well laid out with clear and easy to follow guidelines and recipes. Yes, it takes a while to get the cooking done but it saves alot of money and time in the end(compared to processed foods). The recipes are tasty and surprisingly different - apple in mini burgers (which I thought she'd hate - but loved) and clever presentations that make meal times less of a battle. The end of the book includes recipes that all the family can eat.
Annabel doesn't promise your baby will always eat but she does guide you along with her years of experience as a Mother and a cook.
A real life saver for us. You won't be disappointed.
