How Nursery Has Helped Our Fussy Eater

We had such a positive experience with weaning and I was so happy when Erin seemed genuinely happy to try new foods and she really seemed to enjoy eating. In fact, the stronger the flavour the better. However, it seemed like as soon as Erin turned 1 she became a fussy eater. Erin just didn’t want to know any more and we were forced to deal with a very limited menu. No matter how much we tried to get Erin to eat new things or to at least try new foods she refused. Sweetcorn was the most offensive thing to

Saying Goodbye To Bottles

As I had a pretty rough time after Erin’s birth we had to make the choice to bottle feed her quite early on. It wasn’t something I had wanted to do initially but you do what you have to do and it was really the best choice for Erin in the end. Erin has always loved her bottles and up until recently, would still have a full bottle of milk before naps and bedtime. However, with her turning two recently I decided it was time to say goodbye to bottles. To be completely honest this was only going to be

Appy Kids Co Drink Review & Giveaway

Erin is a massive Paw Patrol fan so when we got asked to review a range of drinks from Appy Kids Co, I couldn’t resist. If you haven’t heard of Appy Kids Co before, they’re on a mission to offer both healthy and affordable drinks for children and they’re using well-known characters to help do that. Not only did we receive 2 boxes of the Paw Patrol 200ml Pouch Orange Juice Drink and 2 boxes of the Paw Patrol 200ml Pouch Apple Juice Drink but also the Dora and Friends Mixed Berries Juice Drink and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Multifruit Drink.

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
