As children get older their taste buds develop and with that their appetite to experience new foods also grows.
Finding the perfect meal for a family to enjoy or for a toddler’s quick snack is often a hard task for even the best cook, yet now with the upcoming launch of a mother-of-one’s latest cook book, that challenge has become a little bit easier.
‘Easy Indian SuperMeals for babies, toddlers and the family' is the first of its kind - an Asian-influenced cookbook that supports parents on the journey from weaning to toddler meals and snacks, on to post-school quick fixes, and even meals for the whole family to enjoy together.
Written by Zainab Jagot Ahmed, mum of three-year-old Aaliyah, the book contains a host of delicious meals derived from Indian recipes which focus on healthy and wholesome flavours with aromatic spices.
Zainab’s two previous books, ‘Indian SuperMeals: Baby & Toddler Cookbook’ and ‘Yummy Indian SuperMeals for Kids: Mini-Taster Edition’ were huge successes, and inspired her to launch this latest guide, due to be released in September.
Giving parents the choice of a healthy Indian option, which is more than just a curry, she explained why she thought it was so important to release a third book.
She said: “It's not all about curry - although there are plenty of delicious recipes including Classic Keema Curry and Mum's Lamb Curry with Sweet Potato.
“Many of the recipes are influenced by food cultures including British, Italian and Spanish, all adapted with a hint of Indian, so there are oodles of taste and flavour still present - helping you to raise a well-rounded, healthy eater.”
More than just a cookbook, Zainab adds her personal experiences as a first-time Mum in a friendly and light-hearted manner.
The book is packed with advice on how to tackle weaning, nutritional information and extensively researched SuperFood and SuperSpice details relevant to the whole family.
With fuss-free recipes which are easy to follow, ‘Easy Indian Supermeals for babies, toddlers and the family’ looks set to be a favourite read for families across the UK and is available later this year.
