Easy Lunch Box Fillers with Shaken Udder

I don’t have to pack a lunch for L yet, he gets free school meals because he’s still little. So when it came to sending him off to Barracudas Activity Day Camps over Easter I was thrown!

He needed enough for a full day, it needed to be tasty, filling and ok out of the fridge. Two snacks, at least, plus lunch. I dropped him off at 9am and didn’t have to pick him up until 4.30pm. That’s a lot of time and a lot of food. Not even taking into account all the running around they would be doing.

Something to “Sprout” about

An exciting new range of cakes from Everfresh Natural Foods really is something to shout about. Not only are the cakes created using a minimal number of high quality organic and natural ingredients, there are no preservatives*, stabilisers or flavourings in sight. These new cakes have been specially created with those on plant based diets in mind and incorporate the goodness of sprouted grains as well as using no added sugar, dairy or egg products.

Pickering’s Gin & British Airways create world’s first sky-high gin

Botanically engineered to be enjoyed at 30,000ft

In a world first, Edinburgh based Pickering’s Gin, have created a gin that has been specifically developed to be enjoyed at altitude. The gin is available to drink onboard on all short haul flights and through the High Life shop as part of a trio pack.

Distilled at Edinburgh’s Summerhall Distillery, the unique 10-botanical gin celebrates the very best of British flora and fauna – juniper, rose petals and heather- alongside signature Pickering’s botanicals of lime, lemon, cardamom and cinnamon. The resulting spirit is the product of close collaboration, working together to ensure that flavour is maximised in the air, but tastes just as good on the ground.

Real Good Ketchup

I’m hoping I’m not the only parent to have found that adding Ketchup to seemingly any meal makes it so down far more easily!

I’m fully aware it’s not always the best choice though. I try hard to think about what I’m feeding L and keep it healthy as well as fun but it’s not always that easy.

#MeatMatters Quick and Easy Dinner

When BritMums got in touch to see if anyone would like to share a quick and easy #MeatMatters Beef or Lamb based recipe that the family loves I just knew it would have to be Spaghetti and Meatballs, the kid loves it and it’s so quick and easy.

It also helps that he is obsessed with the Grinch movie at the moment and loves watching him eat a giant pile of meatballs at the start of the film, so I know I’m onto a winner when I serve it for dinner.

Testing the new Kids Menu at Turtle Bay

When it comes to eating out L is pretty easy-going, I literally can’t think of anywhere that we wouldn’t go with him. That being said, if he has a choice, he will only ever pick one of two places, Turtle Bay or McDonald’s (the lure of the Happy Meal is strong).
