Let them eat kale, says Annabel Karmel!

Let them eat kale, says Annabel Karmel!

From spinach to squash, kale to cauliflower, these culinary superheros are loaded with essential nutrients, reasonably priced and easy to prep. We’re buying them by the bucket load, but these bona fide foods are not just for adult pallets. 

Leading baby and children’s food expert Annabel Karmel shows us that these once subversive superfoods are now reigning supreme with a new generation of eaters.

Step aside stodgy baby rice and bland beige foods, it’s time to introduce your little one to a world of flavour with Annabel’s on-trend food combos.

“Having started a food revolution 25 years ago with my first avant-garde cookbook, I’ve continued to push the food boundaries for babies. And now, a brand new 25th anniversary editon of my global baby feeding bestseller is about to tantalise the tastebuds of a whole new generation of feeding recruits.

“From spiralized courgettes to curly kale, good eating habits are formed from an early age, so it’s essential to introduce a variety of foods at the earliest possible opportunity – and there’s no need to buy anything different from what you are adding to your shopping list.”
