Bestselling author and food expert Annabel Karmel, has partnered up with a nursery in Wanstead to design a healthy menu that even the pickiest of eaters will enjoy.
Recognised throughout the country for devising delicious, nutritious meals for babies and children, Ms Karmel has been working closely with the chef at Treehouse Nursery - Woodbine Place, to ensure mealtimes become a memorable, much-loved part of the day.
Maria Sanchez, managing director of Treehouse Nursery School, said: “We know how important it is for babies and children to stay fuelled on the right foods whilst in our care. We also recognise the importance of introducing a diverse range of delicious flavours to encourage good, healthy eating habits for the future. That is why we have partnered with the UK’s number one parenting author, who has 43 cookbooks to her name.”
Dedicated to packing in plenty of goodness whilst ensuring the meals are anything but bland, the nursery chef and author have worked together to cook-up a variety of appetising meals, including poached cod, chicken chow mein, lamb curry and jerk chicken.
“From weaning, through to children with specific dietary requirements, the menu will enable children to experience everything from timeless favourites to yummy hidden veggie dishes and recipes that take a cue from a world of flavours,” added Ms Sanchez.
Parents were encouraged to visit the nursery to sample the new recipes on 27 September, whilst children helped to cook chocolate brownies.
Ms Karmel, a London born mother-of-three, said it was fantastic to see both parents and children enjoying the new menu.
“It’s so important that the nursery’s babies and children are fuelled on the right foods, so I’ve looked to create a wholesome, healthy food offering which is packed full of flavour,” she said.
“Eating habits and tastes are formed from an early age, so it is incredibly important to introduce a good variety of foods at the earliest possible opportunity, and it is fantastic that Treehouse Nursery School shares my vision to ensure every child gets the nutrients they need for their development and long-term health.”
Treehouse Nursery School is a long-established provider of childcare for young children. It operates two settings in Wanstead, north-east London.
