Annabel Karmel

Annabel Karmel (1957-now)

Annabel Jane Elizabeth Karmel MBE is the author of books on nutrition and cooking for babies, children and families. Annabel's first child died of a rare viral disease aged just three months. Although the illness was not diet related, Annabel was determined to give her second child the best possible start in life and she spent two years researching child nutrition and development, interviewing leading UK paediatricians and child nutritionists. Her first book was The Complete Baby and Toddler Meal Planner, written in 1991. It was endorsed by Great Ormond Street Hospital, the UKs leading childrens hospital. Annabel has since published numerous other books and has worked as a consultant with manufacturers like Marks and Spencer. In August 2006 she launched Make Your Own A range of equipment for making one's own baby food. Annabel writes regularly for national United Kingdom newspapers including The Times, The Daily Mail and the Sunday Mirror as well as contributing to Practical Parenting, BBC Good Food and Sainsbury's Magazine. She is the childrens celebrity chef on the BBC website and also appears frequently on radio and television as the UKs expert on nutritional issues including BBC1s Saturday Kitchen and BBC2s Working Lunch. She completed a series on the Richard & Judy Show, as the Foodie Godmother where she travelled around the United Kingdom solving the problems of fussy eaters. She also filmed a 10 part series with Sky Active called Mummy That's Yummy. In 2007, Annabel launched a range of food products for children called Eat Fussy with Sainsbury's supermarket in the UK. In June 2009, Annabel will be one of the celebrity chefs appearing at the Children's Food Festival in Oxfordshire.
