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 […]

Win Waitrose Cookery School Experience With Ella’s Kitchen Little Foodies

Assuming that your toddler is like ours, food plays an important part in their life. Chances are, if they’re not eating it, then they’re asking to eat it, talking about having eaten it or are playing imaginary games which features eating it. What’s more, I’ve noticed over the last month or so that Toddler L’s […]

How Does Our Garden Grow? #SowAndGrowUK

You know something that I never thought would interest me? Gardening and growing my own vegetables.

For us, this usually involves stuff like playing with lots of toys, reading, watching TV […]

Eating As A Family At Dinner Time #DinnerTimeChallenge

Before we go any further, I need to clear something up. I eat ‘tea’, not ‘dinner’. Actually, that’s a lie. I eat ‘dinner’ too, but my ‘dinner’ is more likely to be your ‘lunch’. As everyone from the north knows, people eat ‘breakfast’, ‘dinner’ and ‘tea’. Now that I live in the south though, I […]

A Boxing Day Party Food Feast With Iceland

In case you haven’t realised, it’s nearly Christmas! Let’s ignore the 25th December for a minute though. Let’s instead switch attention to it’s less glamorous neighbour. The 26th December. Boxing Day. For me, Boxing Day has always been busy. When I used to live at home or go back to my folks’ for Christmas, it […]

Cooking Up A Veggie Storm In The Kitchen With Kalettes

I like to think that I’ve got a pretty decent general knowledge. Sure, I know more about certain topics – football and CBeebies spring to mind – but I reckon I could hold my own on The Chase or Tipping Point. It was therefore with a furrowed brow that I recently read an email about […]
