Raisin & Fudge Cupcakes With Flora

I am not a natural in the kitchen. When it comes to cooking up a delicious meal for our family, it will nearly always go completely wrong. Something I have found that I’m quite good at is baking. Since becoming a stay at home mum I have done a lot of baking but I do prefer to do it alone …

Annabel Karmel Family Cooking App Launch at KidZania London

Going anywhere as a family of 5 is really scary. I have to check, double check and then debate the journey first because quite frankly trains can get pretty stressful when you are outnumbered by children and in confined conditions. But when I was contacted to attend the launch of Annabel Karmel’s new Family Cooking App I just had to …

Bernard Matthews – Mealtimes Games

“Stop playing with your food!” I remember being told as a child. I hear myself saying this to my own daughters countless times a day, especially whilst P2 moisturises her hands and face in yoghurt or baked beans. Well what if playing with your food was allowed? Bernard Matthews challenged me to come up with 3 different games that the …

Letting The Children Make Lunch with Bernard Matthews

Meal times can be pretty boring. We all eat, three times a day or more. Children specifically get given their food laid out in front of them and they eat it, or throw it, mash it between their fingers, but usually they eat it. Then Bernard Matthews sent over their next Family Panel task and I was thrilled. Putting the …

Kids Fun At Home with I MUNE NURTURE

We’ve been experiencing some pretty awful behaviour with P1 lately. I’ve been doing a lot of research about it because I desperately want to help her to control and understand her emotions as well as understand them myself. This weekend I’ve especially been changing the things we do. Normally we like to use the weekend to recooperate after a busy …

My Detox With Slimming Solutions Teatox Review

I am still nowhere near my weight goal or my body image goal despite what people think and receiving the compliments is fantastic but it doesn’t stop how I see myself in the mirror and in photos. I don’t want to accept my body the way it is and I do honestly feel like that but I struggle with motivation …

Queen Of Hearts Cookie Company Review

I am really trying my best to cut my meal portions and stop snacking as much as I used to in a bid to lose the extra weight I’m carrying but also to be healthier inside. When the Queen Of Hearts Cookie Company contacted me to review some biscuits for them I was actually really excited. It was just before …

The Breadless Lunch Challenge with Bernard Matthews

Our latest Bernard Matthews family panel challenge was to create a breadless lunch. It had to be imaginative but you couldn’t use bread, pittas or wraps. So we racked our brains and I came up with a cute little idea for this challenge, a jacket potato man! I know that lunch times are notoriously known for being something cold, but …

Knowing what to look out for and how to alter your shopping trip to suit a more careful and pennywise shopper is essential if you want your groceries to cost less and produce as little waste as possible, so here is the …

Our Weaning Journey – Vegetables with Cow & Gate Friends

In my experience both Spoon-Led and Baby-Led weaning are equally effective and it’s purely up to the parent to decide which method suits them best. I’ve done both methods and am currently doing a mix of both with P3. You are advised to introduce flavours and ingredients one at a time to make sure that your baby isn’t allergic to …

Arla Big Milk Review

Milk seems to be the bane of my life at the moment. I seem to spend so much time making formula milk for P3 and receiving demand after demand for “a big one milk bottle” from P2. Then there’s P1 who really should be having more for her bone strength and growth. P2 is addicted to cows milk in a …

Our Weaning Journey – Annabel Karmel Toddler Meals

The other week we had an extremely exciting delivery in two batches for the girls. Annabel Karmel had sent us some awesome products to help with our mealtimes. As a parent or Grandparent, feeding times can be stressful when kids are involved. Whether that’s due to owning a fussy eater or lack of time or the mess so I was …

Our Weaning Journey – Baby Led Weaning

I know that weaning can be a stressful time for any parent, I’ve been there twice before and have made it through all the good and the bad bits. I wanted to create a series of blog posts on weaning. Of course, I am not medically trained and my way is certainly not the right or wrong way to do …

My Healthy Habit with Juice Plus – Week 12

I started my weight loss journey 12 weeks ago nearly 13 this Thursday. I haven’t updated for a month and that’s mainly because the Juice Plus Journey, healthy eating and exercise has sort of gone to pot. Ok, I’ve still been exercising usually every day for 10 minutes or every other day so that I’ve stuck to. But for nearly …
