Trying to impress the importance of getting those five-a-day upon a 14-month-old is a battle new parents don’t have the time – or energy – to fight. So why not have Annabel Karmel’s baby and toddler recipes app give you a much needed helping hand?
Karmel is a super-chef whose app pulls up a selection of 350 healthy, nourishing recipes pitched at little ones aged 4 and under.
Trying to get them to try tomatoes? How about broccoli? Enter your desired ingredient and the app will pull up a series of exclusive, tried-and-tested recipes featuring those items. You can also search by filters including age (from baby, through to toddler, up to 4-year-old); meal time; ingredient; or popular themes (like party, quick and easy, snacks or lunchbox recipes).
Everything Karmel makes is balanced and pitched at little ones, and each recipe outlines allergen information, cooking time and whether or not the food is suitable for freezing.
You can also make the supermarket a breeze with the meal planner function: create a schedule of a week’s worth of meals and you’ll be served a list of the ingredients you need to source.
Karmel also acknowledges that early parenthood is an anxious time. Fortunately you can reassure yourself by browsing her extensive library of informed, accessible articles covering topics from baby-led weaning to reading bedtime stories with your toddler. Bringing up baby? Annabel Karmel has got your back.
