Annabel Karmel

Annabel Karmel

Annabel is a leading author on preparing and cooking food for children. Following the tragic loss of her first baby, Annabel – a trained Cordon Bleu cook – extensively researched the topic of feeding young children. She combined her findings with her own experience and worked with a nutritionist to produce her first book, The Complete Baby and Toddler Meal Planner, published in 1991.

The book was a big hit and was endorsed by the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children. Since then, Annabel has written more than 19 books on the subject of feeding babies and young children, as well as books teaching children how to cook.

Annabel has received a number of awards for her work. In 2006, she was awarded an MBE by Her Majesty the Queen for her outstanding contribution to the field of child nutrition.
