Finding Out What’s In Baby And Toddler Snacks

It’s common knowledge that certain foods aren’t great for us – it doesn’t take a genius to understand that ice-cream, chocolate or fizzy drinks are full of sugar and should only be eaten in moderation (sorry to break it to you if you didn’t…). But what about other foods? Those that we perceive to be good […]

3 Child-Friendly Meals Rich In Omega-3

As a busy family, trying to find that balance between taste, convenience and nutritional value is a challenge. Sure, we’d all like to eat home-cooked meals every night that are packed with everything – and more – of what we need each day, but that’s not always practical when you have young kid(s) and are […]

Huevos Rancheros Spicy Mexican Brunch Recipe

For me, a weekend brunch is one of my favourite meals. Sure, breakfast, dinner and tea – yes, I’m Northern – rightly have their place as the three main meals, but they can all be very meh and samey. Enter brunch, the rebellious, black sheep of mealtimes. Brunch allows you to mix things up, eat […]

Chateaubriand Steak Recipe For An Awesome Father’s Day Meal

If there’s one day when I’d expect to put my feet up and be waited on hand and foot, it’s Father’s Day. As a relatively new dad, I’m still trying to get used to the unexpected benefit of having a bonus special day just because I reproduced. Sure, I’ve had 32 birthdays just for me, but having […]

Raising The Steaks With Iceland’s Churrasco BBQ Meat Range

With summer approaching, I’m already salivating at the prospect of BBQ after BBQ after BBQ – the amount of times I’ve had to wipe my chin already is ridiculous. I know it’s a proper British cliché, but I love those days when the sun is out, there’s meat on the grill and you’re hanging out with […]

A Beginner’s Guide To The Confusing World Of Toddler Playdates

When your kid reaches the age of two, it’s time to start embracing toddler playdates. This isn’t always as easy as you might think. Sure, you might be willing, but where do you start? What are the rules? What’s the social etiquette? How does the whole thing work? That was never taught in your NCT […]

Cooking With Ella’s Kitchen At Waitrose Cookery School For Little Foodies

A few weeks ago, I did something pretty cool. As part of the ‘Little Foodies’ campaign – which is a partnership between Ella’s Kitchen and Waitrose designed to get shoppers prepping, cooking and exploring healthy food for their little ones – I got to visit Waitrose Cookery School. Not only that, but I watched a proper chef cook […]

Update: How Does Our Garden Grow? #SowAndGrowUK

A few weeks ago, I wrote a post about our involvement in innocent and GIY’s (Grow It Yourself) Sow And Grow campaign. Working with thousands of schools across the UK, the aim is to encourage kids to grow their own fruit and veg in the classroom so that they better understand where their food comes from. […]

‘Posh’ Toddler-Friendly Cottage Pie Recipe For British Pie Week

Does anyone else remember when a Tuesday just used to be a Tuesday? Or when a random week during March was just that? These days though, it seems like every day, week and month has been claimed by an organisation to promote, raise awareness or celebrate something different. Whilst the majority of these things pass by […]
