Top 5 food blogs for parents

Nick Coffer

My Daddy Cooks  is a fabulous video blog made by Nick Coffer featuring his gorgeous toddler Archie. In it they cook fresh, creative and varied food together on camera in their tiny kitchen. After adopting a “baby led weaning” approach to solids when Archie was 6 months old (no purées or mushes, just eating and enjoying the same food together round the table as a family), Archie loves food and cooking and these videos really show this. Nick has his own radio show now and his first book out on May 26th and was recently on the Vanessa show…he is that good! he is also really clear and makes you feel you can cook too even with kids!


Annabel Karmel

At the moment Annabel’s blog is all about her new show Annabels Kitchen where she cooks with 2 madcap penguins and really engages kids with food. It’s been on CiTV if you missed it and there is a great book to go with it. My 3 year old keeps ‘reading’ it and showing me pictures of clown sandwiches and the like! Annabel Karmel know s a lot about baby, toddlers kids and food she is also the best selling parenting author int he UK.

    Great list, will look at the ones I haven’t come across before. This is a bit cheeky, but please stop by my family food blog: – I post my own and other people’s (adapted) recipes – all easy and achieveable, but still delicous and normally nutritious – but not always! : )
