I love this one because it is fun for little ones who want to get involved in the kitchen, yet fairly quick at the same time. It also relies on the stevia for sweetness as well as the natural sugar in the berries so can be a great option for those wanting to keep added sugars to a minimum.
Every year around Christmas we go berry picking as a family and usually end up picking way to many berries. By the time we get to some of them they are a little mushy so I was looking for a fun recipe that we could use them for and this is just the one!
Are you looking for some cheap, festive meal ideas to suit your family this Christmas? Whether you’re bringing a dish for a potluck meal, or keeping it more low-key, these recipes will be sure to win over the whole family!

Kids eat with all five senses, and usually eat with their eyes first. You probably know the scenario: they come to the table, take one look at the meal, and declare that they don’t like it before they’ve even tasted it. So, a great way to make a meal more appealing to kids is to make a habit of serving it in a fun, colourful way.
Little peeps are drawn to bright colours, and young children especially equate eating with playing. To them, it’s all one and the same. It’s great if we can encourage a playful and positive attitude towards food, and allow them to view it as something interesting and fun, rather than overwhelming and stressful.

As a mum who is preparing to go on a long-haul flight with a toddler in a few weeks, I want to be armed to the teeth with all of the best toddler approved snack ideas for the plane. I also want to know as many travel tips and tricks for keeping sane. Twenty-four hours of being confined is not a two year-old’s idea of fun…for anyone on the plane!
So, please share any extra tips you have over in our group, we’d love to hear them.
It’s definitely not my first time flying with a toddler, and after our last flight with my then three year-old, I learnt a few things about what food I should be offering, and what I shouldn’t (more on that later!).
I’ve put together this list of healthy and toddler approved snacks to pack for the plane to help you if it’s your first time flying with kids, or you’re just looking for some inspiration for next time. It really does pay to plan ahead when you travel with kids. Like anything we do as parents…we get caught out if we don’t prepare for every scenario. There’s not so much room for spontaneity these days…how dull is adulting! 😂

Kid’s parties are fun but they can easily get out of control with all the sugar, not to mention the artificial colours, flavours, additives and preservatives, which are seriously not good for little tummies. With a few simple ideas and recipes up your sleeve, it is possible to create a party for the little ones that is fun, delicious AND healthy.
First things first – keep it simple. There are a lot of interesting things you can do with fruit and vegetables that will catch the eye of little party go-ers, and you really need to add just a couple of savoury and sweet (healthy) treats, and you have satisfied little minis and happier parents who get to avoid the sugar crash!
