toddler cookbook. {GIVEAWAY!}



When I was small, I have memories of a favorite children’s cookbook. I spent hours turning the pages, looking at the pictures; to this day they are embedded in my mind. Some of my best memories are cooking with my mom out of that book. Annabel Karmel has created the toddler cookbook, and I'm hoping my girls will love and remember it for years to come.



The glossy pages full of pictures already have Lily announcing the many recipes she and I will be making from the Lettuce Boats to the Peanut Butter Bears. The pictures show step-by-step directions that are easy for toddlers to follow, helping introduce them to the joys of cooking and baking, nutrition and creativity.
Annabel Karmel is a best-selling author on nutrition and cooking for children, and her books are published all over the world. She is well known for providing advice and guidance to millions of parents on what to feed and cook for children, as well as getting families to eat a healthier diet with an emphasis on fun.
Any mother knows, finding nutritious food to feed their toddler can be a challenge. I welcome Annabel's introduction to new ideas and nutritious options toddlers and parents can make together creating positive memories and teaching them at a young age to love cooking.

Today five of the toddler cookbook ($11 each) are up for giveaway. Giving you even more chances to win!

Would you like to win? be sure to:
