The Importance Of Family Meals

Just recently Erin has been an absolute nightmare with food. She has been going through a horrible phase where she just would not eat. If that wasn’t bad enough, we’ve also had the 18 month sleep regression too! Generally, apart from a few short phases before now, she’s always been a pretty good eater. I always thought it was teething that caused this kind of thing but apparently being a toddler causes it! The not eating thing had been going on for about 2 weeks and during a visit from my sister meant us changing how we do things at

For Aisha Review & Giveaway

Back in February when Erin was getting more adventurous with food and flavours we were lucky enough to try some of the For Aisha Stage 3 pouches and Erin loved them. I was so excited when I heard that For Aisha were doing tray meals for babies aged 10 months+ I got excited! I couldn’t wait for Erin to try them. The stage 3 tray meals come in 4 different flavours: Chicken & Sweet Potato Curry, Green Bean & Lamb Curry, Chicken, Quinoa & Vegetable Stew and Date & Apricot Tagine with Lamb. There is no other baby food brand

Googly Fruit Organic Snacks For Kids & Giveaway

I absolutely love finding new food brands for Erin. We’re always on the look out for healthy snacks for her so when Googly Fruit got in touch to tell us about their range, I was excited! Sometimes I think it’s really hard to find snack for toddlers that aren’t full of bad sugar, aren’t fried or basically, aren’t bad for them. Now, don’t get me wrong, I have no problem with Erin having crisps or chocolate now and again but I like to make healthy choices where I can. Googly Fruit offers three different products; Crunchy Puffs, Real Fruit Made

Little Dish: Proper Food For Kids

Erin has been going through a bit of a strange phase recently when it comes to food. She has not wanted to eat nearly as much as normal and she has been super picky with what she does eat. With that in mind, I’ve been on the look out for food to try her with that is delicious but also healthy at the same time. Phases with eating can quickly lead to unhealthy options and I don’t want to do that. I recently discovered Little Dish at Bubble London¬†and we’ve been lucky enough to try out a selection of their

The Girl Who Wouldn’t Eat

Erin used to be such a good eater. While we were in the weaning stages I made sure I got her to try all different kinds of foods and cooked up loads of different meals for her. I meal planned religiously, although that sort of doesn’t really work for her anymore. I am such a fussy eater myself and I never wanted Erin to be the same, which is why I put so much effort and thought into what she eats. Sometimes, certain things have gotten in the way of how well Erin has eaten. Teething has been our biggest

16 Ways To Get Kids To Eat Healthy

I have mentioned on social media a few times lately that Erin has become somewhat of a fussy eater. Well, it’s more that she’s going through something where she doesn’t really want to eat. When we had an email drop in our inbox with some great tips for helping kids to eat healthily from Families Online, I knew that we had to share it! We’ll be trying some of this tips ourselves over the next few weeks. I think some of the tips are quite simple but as a first time parent and someone that hasn’t had to try to

Mediterranean Inspired Cooking with Piccolo

Last month we were invited to an event in King’s Lynn run by baby/ toddler food company Piccolo. Unfortunately we were unable to make it due to being in London which was a real shame. If you haven’t heard of Piccolo before, they offer Mediterranean inspired food suitable for babies from 6 months old! During the event, in-house nutritionist Alice Fotheringham shared loads of tips for making meal times nutritious while still being fun at the same time. I am absolutely gutted that I missed this. Erin is going through a bit of a fussy phase at the moment and

Bibetta Children’s Placemat with Pocket

Erin is a bit of a messy eater. We don’t use a high chair anymore and we quite often end up with food all over the dining table. We’ve recently been trying out the Bibetta Children’s Placemat with Pocket. We have tried various other suction type mats before now, some of which stuck and some of which didn’t. The Bibetta placemat was a bit different so I was looking forward to seeing how Erin got on with this one. The Bibetta placemat features a black, non-slip backing which is designed to keep it in place. It also as a small
