For over 25 years, millions of families have trusted Annabel Karmel's expertise in feeding. Now, Annabel's Baby-Led Weaning Recipe Book has been designed for parents wanting to explore self-feeding.
Championing a flexible approach to feeding, this book makes for the ideal stand-alone guide for those wanting to explore baby-led weaning (BLW) exclusively. Or for those wanting to introduce BLW alongside spoon-feeding purees, it can be used as a companion cookbook to Annabel's New Complete Baby & Toddler Meal Planner which is filled with her famous puree recipes.
This delicious, nutritious collection of 120 family friendly recipes is paired with useful advice and essential tips to equip parents with the power to choose what's best for their baby.
Whilst purees provide an obvious bridge between liquid and solid foods, self-feeding offers a prime opportunity for babies to discover their natural abilities to explore a wide variety of tastes and textures, encouraging independence and good eating habits.
Many families find that incorporating a mix of both works best for their baby. Whether you are choosing exclusive BLW or combining with spoon-feeding, Annabel's Baby-Led Weaning Recipe Book is the ultimate companion for exploring self-feeding safely.
