WHAT: A recipe app from the No.1 feeding guru Annabel which has over 250 delicious recipes, as well as a host of other features making it one of handiest of apps to access tasty, nutritious meal ideas for your growing baby.
WHY: With over 25 years experience in the field, it would be safe to say Annabel Karmel is the final word on weaning and feeding young children. This new updated app has a wealth of features including recipe planners, shopping lists, tips and easy to follow, step-by-step instructions. Junior Editor Bonita Turner said “I wish this app had been around when I was weaning my daughter – I followed Annabel’s recipe book to the letter but how much easier would an app have been? Especially love the speaker function where you can say ‘next’ to move to the next step without having to get your phone mucky. Unlike my worn recipe book that is covered in dried pureed fruits and vegetables!”
