Fearne Cotton launches children’s picture book Hungry Babies

The sequel to best-selling Yoga Babies is due for release in September.


Fearne is best known to TV viewers as the host of Top of the Pops on BBC One.

“Being a mother you realise how fussy or strange kids can be around food. My two have very specific favourites and dislikes and it can be challenging at meal times. Sometimes it’s a joy but it is also hard work in producing new foods to reluctant participants.” – Fearne Cotton

Broadcaster, author and mum Fearne Cotton has revealed her brand new children’s picture book Hungry Babies to her millions of social media followers.

Once again illustrated by Sheena Dempsey, Hungry Babies follows the same set of children from Yoga Babies as they go through the many perils of meal times – from big eaters to fussy eaters, breakfast at home to eating on the go, Fearne’s warm, funny rhyme reflects all aspects of eating with little ones. Sheena Dempsey has snuck in a few familiar faces and places if you follow Fearne’s Instagram – with her kids Honey and Rex, Fearne’s kitchen and even the children’s wendy house making an appearance!

“Meal times in our house are usually pretty hectic! The kitchen floor looks like the Monday after Glastonbury Festival and I’m sweating. I try to get my kids to try new things. Rex is very good at this and loves the challenge where as Honey takes a little more work. Some days they eat every thing I put in front of them and other days not so much so I try not to worry too much.” – Fearne Cotton

Andersen Press has announced a pre-order campaign at the same time, the first 500 people to pre-order the book and fill in the proof-of-purchase online will receive a special signed book plate and letter in the post.

2018 has been an incredibly busy year for Fearne so far, including the launch of her chart-topping podcast Happy Place. Hungry Babies is published in hardback on September 6th 2018. RRP: £10.99. ISBN. 9781783446858.

“I think the book will deliver hope that kids will eventually try new foods, but also that it is OK if there is a meal time that goes a bit wrong. Food on the floor, kids spitting new foods out – I think the book is a fair reflection on a plethora of possible outcomes.” – Fearne Cotton
