    Family Friendly Recipes Anyone Can Make at Home

    I have been meaning to write about family mealtimes for ages and when I started thinking about Lottie and how she eats now, I found that one of the main problems I have at the moment is the fact that I am now cooking 2 hot meals every day at different times. This is fine when I have time to but more often than not, I don’t get chance to and I don’t always have a load of previously cooked meals in the freezer ready to whip out when I need one. We are always looking for family friendly recipes. Family Friendly Recipes Lottie is eating pretty much everything now…

    Healthy Eating With Natures Finest Fruit Pots

    We are really into our fruit and vegetables at the moment but sometimes it’s tricky to get them into your diet as they are. I’m always looking for the next interesting way to eat them. I love snacks and I love fruit but I don’t eat it as often as I should. I just can’t be bothered to prepare it most of the time (#lazymum!) so when I saw that Natures Finest were looking for bloggers for their fruit pots, I put us forward to give them a try. Natures Finest pick and pack their fruit at the peak of their ripeness in order to lock in all of the…

    It’s no secret that I love a good snack and I’m always looking for the next new snack out there so when I saw that Go Ahead were looking for reviews of their Smart Snacks range, I knew it would be something I could ‘get my teeth into!’ I have to say, I was so excited when we received the Go Ahead box as it is one of the most exciting we have had in a while from a snack company and I was really pleased by the amount of products we got to review…literally the whole range! Go Ahead! are one of the leading and most well-known snack brands…

    Perfect Little Snacks with KIND Snack Bars

    I’m always on the lookout for new and interesting snacks to have in between meals, not only for Mia but also for myself. I think it’s sometimes hard to find snacks that are tasty as well as being a healthier option or better for you than a bag of crisps or a packet of hobnobs! I crave sweet things throughout the day and with an 3 school runs a day and running after a 2yr old all afternoon, I’m always in need of a quick snack I can grab-on-the-go. When I saw that KIND snacks where looking for reviewers of their snack bars, I was really interested to see how…

    We Took On The Flora Lunchbox Challenge!

    Mia started Preschool 4 mornings a week from September and as she absolutely loves it, we got the opportunity to enrol her in Lunch Club which means she can stay an extra 45 minutes and have a packed lunch with all her friends. The idea is that it gets the children used to sitting and eating with others ready for when they start school next September. I think it’s a great idea and she is absolutely thriving however it has thrown up a couple of problems for us in that I have never had to make up a packed lunch for her before and I suddenly felt the pressure of…

    Weight Loss Post #7 – Weight Loss Feature

    Hi everyone! Welcome to my Weight Loss Post #7! I haven’t done a weight loss post in a while because I have been focusing on my reviews of different diets which has definitely kept me very busy recently! It has also meant that my weight has dropped and I have learnt ever such a lot from the reviews. A lot has changed since my last post as I gave myself the last 2 weeks off from watching what I ate and although we did a lot of walking and going out most days, I have put a bit of weight back on. I could tell as my jeans aren’t fitting as well as they were which is annoying…
