Mamas & Papas invite pregnant mums to an exclusive event with
Annabel Karmel to celebrate launch of her new book Eating for Two
* Saturday 30 June 2012 *
You never forget your first Annabel Karmel recipe. Mine was salmon with a cornflake topping, still one of my children’s favourites. angels & urchins writer Neris Johnson gets to interview the children’s nutrition guru later this month when Annabel Karmel brings her food knowledge and experience to expectant mothers at a Mamas & Papas event.
The event is in honour of the publication of Annabel€™s first-ever guide to eating during pregnancy. A book signing and two events – all open to members of the public – will be held at the Mamas & Papas flagship store on London€™s Regent Street store.
In conversation with Annabel Karmel on Eating for Two
(There are two time slot options available for guests to book a slot: 12.00 -12.45pm or 2.00-2.45pm)
angels & urchins’ journalist Neris Johnson will be interviewing Annabel on a whole host of subjects. These will include her expert advice on eating during pregnancy; ideas for countering morning sickness, sleeplessness and heartburn, and great foods to make while pregnant as well as meals to make ahead and freeze ready for when baby arrives. Guests will also be able to sample some of Annabel€™s cooking at the event and ask the author any burning questions.
Every guest attending will also be given a goody bag at the end of the event.
Exclusive book signing
Annabel will be available to sign copies of her latest book, Eating for Two, at the store from 1-2pm.

More about Eating for Two
Eating for Two (RRP £12.99 Ebury Press) guides expectant mothers throughout each stage of their pregnancy, offering tips and advice on what to eat and avoid.
From the best foods to eat to promote conception, to ideas for avoiding morning sickness in the first trimester, to the best nutrition to combat sleeplessness, anaemia and heartburn later on, the book steers readers through pregnancy and beyond, even suggesting meals to make and freeze ready for when baby arrives.
Mum-of-three Annabel Karmel MBE says: €œEver since I started writing, I€™ve always wanted to create a book for mums-to-be at the very start of their unique journey into parenthood. It€™s a time when every expectant mother wants to be fully informed, be as healthy as possible and know that they are eating the right things for themselves and for her growing baby.
€œMany women still believe that they should be eating for two throughout the whole of their pregnancy and are unaware that their energy requirements from food don€™t need to increase significantly in the first two trimesters. This book demystifies this, and many other pregnancy myths, providing readers with definitive advice, as well as identifying pregnancy super nutrients for mums-to-be and their baby.€
