Looking For A Delicious And Healthy Snack? Try This One

Delicious and healthy snacks are always great to discover and add to the repertoire. As you probably know most muesli bars are very high in sugar and some could even be called junk food. I found this receipe at the weekend in one of my many cookbooks – thank you Sally Joseph. I am already on my second batch as the kids love it. You can make it without the nuts if your kids can’t take them to school. And if there are seeds and...

Here are my Tips to Overcome Back Pain

Back pain can be so debilitating! A few months ago I explained the basic principles behind lower back issues and I thought I would continue that theme. I have had a lot of great feedback and this month’s blog is all about your back health. Because of our sedentary, seated lifestyle, a lot of us have lower back pain or discomfort, tight hamstrings, tight hips and so on. All leading to poor mobility in the hips area and the lower back....

My Fussy Eater: How I Got My Toddler Eating Better Food

Do you have a fussy eater? Do you have problems feeding vegetables to your child? I do, it’s a nightmare. I don’t understand what happened when she was a baby she always had a good appetite. Food introduction was so easy, a dream! She was always hungry for more, whatever you’d give her. I used to make veggie soup and I remember her licking her lips and smiling asking for more. I wish was still like that. Nowadays I have to beg her to...

This is what you need to know for your baby

  Can I give animal foods to my baby from 6 months? Yes, you can.  Research has found that animal foods are so important in ensuring proper growth and height, strength, and intelligence along with mental development and strong immunity. I recommend animal food from grass-fed sources  (organic ideally)  as the quality of life and the nutrient profile of such animals are vastly superior to those that come from the factory farming...

This is how to read food labels

Reading food labels can be tricky, especially yoghurts!  I hope this rundown will help you to choose a good quality yoghurt Today some yoghurts are more like dairy-based deserts than yoghurt due to all the extra ingredients such as sugar, cream, thickeners, gums, starches, and flavours. So my advice is to always read the ingredients which are listed in descending order of weight (from most to least). My top tips for reading the label...

Snakes, Ladders & Parenting

Snakes & Ladders and keys… I am sure, as mums, we all can feel like we are playing a game of snakes and ladders with our children: roll the dice, move forward, up to a ladder or fall down a snake’s back. I am talking about the morning routine…we all know the one, that one when every single thing that could go wrong has gone wrong… The morning alarm didn’t go off (notice how I’m not taking responsibility for this, I forgot to...

This is why yoga works

This is why yoga works for improving core strength. For a long time I was very confused about what core strength truly meant. In yoga classes, the cue “engage your core” didn’t mean anything, as I had no idea what to do or not do, which muscles to engage etc. Even more confusing was the idea that I had to keep my belly soft while engaging my core. So I started looking into it and came across a booklet ‘Functional Pilates‘...

7 Tips For Healthy Eating Habits

Healthy eating habits? Most kids in developed countries currently consume nearly 90% of their daily calories from animal products and processed foods! This can make it very difficult to consume enough fruits and vegetables needed for optimal health. Did you know eating five serves of different colour vegetables daily can help combat against chronic diseases? Diseases which begin in childhood, though we may not see their effects until...
