I can’t believe how long I’d been neglecting my own health and nutrition. Especially when I place so much importance on ensuring my kids eat a healthy, balanced diet. Particularly at lunchtime! Why is it that I will stand there for 10 minutes to prepare a variety of healthy lunch foods for my kids, and then make a quick piece of toast for myself? It makes no sense. It’s almost embarrassing, but I’m all about being honest and I figure if I do this, chances are there are some other mummas that are in some bad habits also.
This year I’ve focussed a lot on self care, making sure that I’m not just looking after everyone else in the family – but myself as well. Starting with lunches!
I work part time – so you’ll see some of the simple healthy lunch ideas below are suited to mums at home, and others suited to working mums also.Continue Reading →
Making your own lunchbox snacks needn’t be fancy or time consuming. A quick batch of simple oatmeal cookies will really only set you back 5 minutes of hands on time and often no more than 10-15 minutes in the oven.
I love this recipe as it is ridiculously versatile and can use up random bits and bobs leftover in the pantry such as seeds, dates, tanies (sultanas) or some exotic berry you tried for a dessert that no one ate. It also has the added bonus of a substantial amount of rolled oats which are a good source of fibre. Continue Reading →

Confession time. Sometimes the thought of cooking from scratch, wondering if I have all the ingredients, etc just hurts my tired mumma head. I just want someone to tell me YES! This is healthy. YES!

I’m always on the hunt for ways to get extra veggies into the boys. Whilst I always serve up vegetables at dinnertime, I don’t think they eat quite enough to meet the daily nutritional requirement. For this reason, I’ve been getting creative with how I can incorporate veggies into other meals of the day, and most recently these Cheesy Vegetable Muffins have been a favourite lunch option.Continue Reading →
In just a few short weeks, Julian will be starting school, and I’m starting to think about how I can pack some healthy lunchbox snacks that he will actually eat.
Where did the last five years go? My little man is growing up, and he is super excited about the adventures to come.

And I’m so pleased to be sharing with you what I’ve found…Continue Reading →
We all know that kids need to eat a variety of fresh foods to be healthy. Great. We also know that packing a lunchbox with fresh food can be challenging at times. It might be a Monday morning emergency when the fridge is empty and the fruit bowl only contains one limp looking banana. Or perhaps you’ve got a super fussy child who only likes plain, white, crispy foods. Or perhaps you just don’t have a lot of time, but the canteen is closed that day. Whatever your reason, sometimes you just need the convenience of a healthy pre-packaged snack to pack in the lunchbox. So, what to choose?Continue Reading →
