I had heard the name ‘Annabel Karmel’ in a variety of things but usually in the form of baby and toddler food seen in supermarkets. I was lucky to be sent a copy of her latest weaning book, Quick & Easy Weaning, and it couldn’t have been timed better with starting to wean Chloe. I did it all with Max obviously, but that was over two years ago, so it’s great to have a reminder of what to do.
The hardback book has great pictures clearly showing what to do and gives a lot of recipe ideas. It even goes from 6 months purees and foods to meals for 12 month olds. What I found the most useful though was an initial ‘meal plan’. Remembering when they should be having a breastfeed and when should be a puree when you first start weaning. I felt like I was constantly feeding Max, whether it be a milk feed or with food so having a plan to follow is great.
The meals are really easy to follow, simple and really nutritious. I am going to make an extra effort to pre-make and feeze lots of purees and meals so they’re handy and ready to go – cooking in bulk is the way to go. It is easy to do with these recipes and it tells you the quantity so you could double up etc.
