About Annabel Karmel
With a career spanning over 30 years, London-born mother of three, Annabel Karmel, has pioneered the way families all over the world feed their babies and children. In 2006, Annabel received an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours for her outstanding work in the field of children’s food and has since become recognised as one of the UK’s leading female entrepreneurs.
Credited with starting a ‘food revolution’ with her trusty recipes and methods, she has become the UK’s No.1 children’s cookery author, best-selling international author, and the mother of all feeding experts with 47 cookbooks…and counting.
Credited with starting a food revolution
Annabel’s journey started with The Complete Baby and Toddler Meal Planner in 1991 – a book that has become the 2nd best-selling non-fiction hardback of all time. It was a legacy to her first child Natasha, who sadly died of a viral infection when she was just 3 months old.
Feeling vulnerable when her son Nicholas came along, she wanted to give him the very best foods. However, she happened to have landed herself the world’s fussiest eater. So, she rolled up her sleeves and set to work on cooking-up inventive combinations that Nicholas would love. Never in her wildest dreams did she think that these recipes would culminate in a cookbook that would go on to sell over 6 million copies worldwide.
