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

I bought this book as my 5 month old is nearing that time to start solids. The photos are beautiful and there are SOME recipes that are good. But I was shocked at how she recommends introducing foods- 7 kinds in 7 days? 3 meals of solids/day by the end of the first month? And by week two, mixtures of items? Liberal use of onions? What the heck!

I was also surprised to see how many times ketchup was an ingredient in the toddler meals- and how involved some of the recipes are!

Sure you could take this book with a grain of salt, and just use it for the recipes, but instead, I recommend Cooking for Baby: Wholesome, Homemade, Delicious Foods for 6 to 18 Months. I just bought this and the recipes were great, the advice practical and logical. As for Annabel Karmel? I'm getting rid of this one and not buying any more of her books.

I got this more for the diary part because I love to document things. The recipes seem interesting and I like how she has a section about feeding yourself for breastfeeding. My baby is still to little to try any food yet though, but when she does, I am more interested in baby led weaning. I was kind of disappointed because the pictures on the front and back covers and the 'look inside' made it seem like it was more baby led weaning with all of the pictures of babies holding food and spoons themselves. But its okay either way, even if I plan to skip the purees.

I got this for my first child. She's now 18 months and we've really enjoyed cooking and eating the recipes from this book as a family. I love that I have the entries for her milk feeds and her first meals. The foods are great for the whole family to eat. We still eat the 6 to 9 month purées as toppings for pasta. And the book becomes a wonderful keepsake from an important time. It helped motivate me to take what my daughter eats very seriously, and it allowed me to look at how I'd been feeding her to see how we were doing.
