Leicester author achieves UK first with Asian-themed baby cookbook


A Leicester author has achieved a UK first with the debut of an Asian-themed baby cookbook.

East Indian SuperMeals: Baby & Toddler Cookbook was the brainchild of Zainab Jagot Ahmed, who after the birth of her first daughter, Aaliyah, wanted to share her favourite Asian food dishes with other new mums.

Mrs Ahmed said: “My daughter is extremely precious to me and when she was born, I wanted to give her the best start in life, and being Asian, wanted her to be in touch with her culinary heritage.

“When I discovered there were no Asian-themed baby food cookbooks, I decided to write my own, creating new and innovative recipes that would be both nutrient rich and delicious.”

The book’s success has seen it sell out on Amazon’s website on launch day, as well as great reviews from mums and critics alike.

Mrs Ahmed said: “My favourite recipe would have to be chicken karahi, it’s a no-hassle, quick, tasty curry. It’s perfect if I’ve had a busy day at work and want to get a speedy, hearty dinner on the table.”

One of Mrs Ahmed’s campaigns is ‪#‎NoMoreFussyEaters‬ as she aims to get kids eating as healthily as possible from an early age.

Mrs Ahmed added: “Trying to avoid fussy eating behaviours is vital for growing children as they need a well balanced, nutrient rich diet for healthy growth and development.

“It can provide them with the best start in life and can help to tackle the obesity crisis currently affecting the UK.”

East Indian SuperMeals for Babies, Toddlers and the Family can be ordered from Amazon.co.uk and Waterstones.
