Salmon is so good for children but it’s not the easiest thing to get them to eat so this recipe is a great, quick and easy way to hide such a healthy food. Like many of my recipes I make good use of my microwave! It’s also great as can be adapted to suit spoon fed or children who can feed themselves.
Going away for the first time with a baby is very daunting. You have no idea what to take and being away from your familiar home environment and routine is enough to make the thought of a holiday truly terrifying. If you have a bottle fed baby you have the added concern of how to clean and sterilise their bottles as its not that practical to lug your steriliser from your home with you!
My burgers have always been like little rocks that could probably break your a bone if you dropped one on your foot! They were very tasty but way too hard. Then I went to my lovely friend’s house and her burgers were soft and moist and really delicious so she gave me her recipe. I have to admit (and I have told her this!) her recipe somehow didn’t work for me so I amended it slightly and now I am pro burger maker! Even The Boy – who is ultra fussy – eats these and declared them “yummy'”.
We quickly realised when we started weaning The Boy that not everyone or everywhere has highchairs (how dare they not be prepared for us!!). So we looked into travel highchairs so he didn’t have to sit on our laps or the floor when eating. Continue reading
For The Boy we bought an all singing, all dancing highchair with recline function, 3 different seat cushions (so he could use it from birth) and a play arch. This thing was so fancy I think it made my husband coffee one day. But it was a pain to clean. Continue reading
When you are expecting a baby you consult a thousand books, websites, relatives, friends and forums to find out what you HAVE to buy for your new arrival. My husband and I were no different and spent a small fortune on our first child, The Boy. At every stage of his development we excitedly toured Mothercare and bought the latest contraption, gadget and currently trendy piece of equipment to ensure our little prince wanted for nothing. Along the way we slowly realised what items were invaluable and quite frankly what items were a waste of money! The same happened when we started weaning him and excitedly I bought every weaning book on the market and every kind of gadget to help nourish my precious firstborn. We slowly realised what was useful to have and what would spend the rest of its life chilling in the loft with the suitcases and fan heater.
I will add more product reviews as and when I come across things I love but if you have any suggestions of things you would like me to look at please let me know!
This is another recipe I found online but, when I tried it, it just didn’t work so I adapted it and the result are “biscuits” that are like chewy in the middle “fudgy” cookies. I have to admit they look unattractive but are really yummy. Perfect for a snack, dessert or breakfast.
I love using couscous as it takes 5 minutes to cook and has an amazing cake like texture when cooked and bound with egg.
I found this recipe online and loved it so much I made a couple of amendments to make them even more tasty. They are so quick and easy to make and the bananas make them really sweet so no need for sugar.
Why spend a fortune on processed baby cereal bars or give your child flapjacks loaded with sugar when you can make these with only 2 ingredients. This is the most popular recipe on my Facebook group and I am constantly being asked about them.
