Sneaky ways to hide vegetables

I thought you may want to see some of my favourite sneaky ways to hide vegetables in everyday meals – so here they are! Continue reading


7 Days Of Lunches Part 2

A few weeks ago I posted “7 Days of Lunches” which was an account of what Little Lady ate for lunch over a 7 day period . I received a huge amount of positive feedback and people seemed to be really interested in what she ate on a daily basis.

7 days of lunches

Since starting this blog people are constantly asking me what I feed my kids. They presume that I never give them anything processed and that every meal is full of couscous, quinoa and vegetables! I tell them they are very much mistaken and my kids, like most others, happily chomp on fish fingers, oven chips, ready made pizzas and peanut butter sandwiches. However I do try to limit the amount of processed food they eat and ensure that the majority of their food is home cooked.  Continue reading
