Ease teething tots with this fab fish pie and Nelsons Teetha® Teething Gel and Granules

Mum of three, Annabel Karmel MBE is a modern day ‘mumpreneur’. As the UK’s number one parenting author and expert on devising delicious and nutritious meals for babies, toddlers and children, Annabel knows how important it is to give teething tots something to chew and suck on during their teething troubles.

 Annabel Karmel comments: “Teething is a difficult and painful process for most babies and, from my experience, can leave both baby and mum exhausted. It is important for parents to make teething as easy and painless as possible by helping them through the teething developmental phase.  Sore gums and flushed cheeks are the primary symptoms of teething, and babies will often chew on anything they can get their hands on to relieve the discomfort, which is why I have created this delicious fish pie.”
