Annabel Karmel Introduces Quick and Easy Cookbook Series for Busy Families
Are you like 35% of Mum's who find coming up with mealtime ideas a challenge that is driving you to despair
Well panic over!
The UK's number one parenting author and expert on baby and child nutrition has cooked-up Annabel Karmel's favourites - a collection of 10 easy-to-follow recipe books covering a range of food milestones in a child's life; from First Foods and Exploring New Tastes, to Lunchboxes and Vegetarian Meals.
Each book has over 50 ideas that use everyday kitchen cupboard ingridients to make nutrious, great value meals.
Mum-of-three Annabel Karmel MBE says: "When it comes to cooking for kids, our research tells us that busy parents don't have time to spend hours flicking through cook books, following complicated recipes and lengthy cooking times-and a leisurely browse around the supermarket is rarely an option with the children in tow.
"The reality is that they want tasty, well-balanced food ideas that they can rustle up in quick time, so they can spend what precious free time they have with their family. As is stands, a quarter of mums worry that the food they are giving their children isn't enjoyed by their children, so my books are there to make life easier-and tastier."
