Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Deliciously quirky, this latest offering from popular British cookbook author Karmel serves up something for everyone: vegetarians, dieters, carb-cravers, sweet-toothers and everyone in-between will find a delicious new recipe to try. With an eye toward healthy eating, Karmel includes informational sidebars alongside the recipes ("Vitamins A, C and E are known as antioxidants. They are thought to help protect against free radicals, destructive molecules that damage cells and DNA."), which range from basic pasta dishes and salads to more involved fare like Honey and Soy Salmon with Sesame or Nasi Goreng. In addition to the recipes, Karmel includes her personal notes on each dish, adding a dash of spice to accompany the bright how-to and finished dish photographs. "Yvonne is a very good friend of mine who lives in Cape Town. I used to teach her daughter to play the harp and whenever I gave concerts Yvonne would present me with a cookbook instead of a bouquet of flowers." Family chefs looking for healthy new ideas to mix up the dinnertime routine will find plenty of ideas here.

More About the Author

Annabel Karmel is the international best-selling author on baby and
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.

Her popular web-site www.annabelkarmel.com is the number one site on child nutrition with lots of advice, delicious recipes and social networking. She has also launched the most comprehensive and informative online TV channel on family nutrition, with recipe videos, Top Tips and interviews with leading experts. Visit www.annabelkarmel.tv

Don't get me wrong...I'd have given this 5 stars had I not owned Karmel's First Foods, but as I flipped through this book I had serious deja vu! Not only were many recipes the same as those in First Foods, but several of the beautiful pictures were of the same items! It may take some time to idenify just how many are essentially the same since some recipes have new names ~ though some are as easy as Jell-o boats (FF) and Gelatin boats (FFM), mini-muffin pizzas, fruit smothies,

Despite the repeats, I am excited about the new book as is my almost-5-year-old! She has looked at the colorful photographs and pointed out several items she "can't wait" to try ~ including many with vegetables she had previously labelled "yucky". If Karmel's innovative presentation takes a few more minutes but can encourage my kids to break out of the hot dog/ mac and cheese routine AND sample new veggies, I'll glady buy her next cookbook too...even if it has a few recycled recipes!

I used to have to prepare several different dishes for each meal because my children usually don't like the same foods. However, with Favorite Family Meals, my children and I decide together which meal I will prepare and now we can all eat the same delicious and healthy meal together. So far, my favorite recipe is the Salmon Teriyaki. My kids, of course, love the desserts, particularly, the Teddy Bear Cupcakes.

I am absolutely thrilled with this cookbook. My frustration level with feeding my family was sky high! My 6 and 11 year old kids have been so good about eating the recipes from this book. Most recipes require chopping up a variety of veggies so there is some prep work (which you can do ahead of time) but that is the point. My problem has been getting them to eat something other than broccoli...I'm so happy my kids are eating healthier and I really believe I have this book to thank for it. Thanks Annabel!

I bought this book after I saw the author on The View. I have two small children at home and I wanted easy meals to make that they would eat, along with my husband and me. i found these recipes to be easy to make and delicious! I am not a cook but this book has helped me feel less intimidated by the kitchen and actually made me feel proud that I can cook meals that the whole family eats and likes. great book!

I am a new grandmother and wanted to get this book for fun foods for my grandson. These recipes are a treat for young or old. These are easy to make recipes with delightful presentations. Not only taste good but look good.

Format: Hardcover
Excellent, as usual. I have 3 of her cookbooks now. I started with the puree and baby food cookbooks and then we got this one. My children, 8, 4 and 9 months have all grown up on her purees and baby foods. They actually taste like food you would want to eat as opposed to most of the stage 3 meats for babies in a jar. I have never had a bad meal from her. We just tried the stir-fried chicken with broccoli from this book and I felt like I was in a chinese restaurant. It was just that good! If you have infants and toddlers or just picky eaters try her other ones too-'First Meals' or 'Top 100 Baby Purees' they are all worth it.
