Feeling Calm #28

For my birthday I was given a great new book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends. To help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little. I have been writing in my journal everyday and on Wednesday’s I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites.

So here are my top 10 moments from the past 7 days; Continue reading Feeling Calm #28

SQUEEZING OUT JUICE FROM KIDS’ DIETS MAY DO MORE HARM THAN GOOD

Research shows 100% fruit juice drinkers are 42% more likely to meet their 5 A Day and it could help 4.7 million in UK towards achieving the target. 

With 91% of children currently failing to meet the 5 A Day target, new analysis of data from the National Diet and Nutrition Survey (NDNS) presented this week at the Nutrition Society Conference in Dublin indicates that 100% fruit juice drinkers are more likely to meet the 5 A Day recommendation.

A Robinsons Water Challenge

I have been trying very hard over recent months to make sure I drink enough water, but I hadn’t given much thought to how much L was drinking. So when I saw the Robinsons #EnjoyMoreWater challenge with BritMums I just knew I had to take part.

Facts – 64% of parents say they do not know how much water their children should be drinking each day, 42% saying their children find the taste of water boring.

L is definitely right there with the finding water boring, he has always enjoyed squash in his drinks. Whilst I have absolutely no idea how much water he should drink I have never overly worried either as he seems to constantly have a drink in his hand. Was he actually drinking from it though, or just playing?

Feeding the Birds with Chapelwood

We are a very outdoorsy family and spend a lot of time in the garden. L loves being outdoors and exploring nature.  He was very excited to be sent a special bird feeder from the Chapelwood Children’s Range.

As soon as his lovely Owl Bird Feeder arrived we had to go and fill it up to give the birds their tea. The feeder is best filled with peanuts or sunflower hearts, but all we had in the house was a mixed bird seed and L had decided the birds needed their tea right that second! Obviously there was a bit of spillage but it holds the mixed seed well.
