Review: Youngs Seafood Simply Bake Cod Fillet

Let’s break my home life down a little. With a 2-year-old and a 6-month-old to look after, a house to run and a full-time self-employed person… it’s almost a wonder how I actually make it through each day. Sometimes when Cameo goes to bed and Marlo has an evening nap I literally sit on the sofa almost stunned. Before going to clean the milk bottles, tidy the toys away and then getting out the laptop to work. This isn’t a one-off thing. This is pretty much every day. So guess what I’m sometimes guilty of?

Food For Fussy Kids – Young’s Cod With Vegetable Chips

One of my goals for 2019 is to attempt more meal planning. It saves time and the constant ‘what shall we have for dinner today’ questions that really starts to get on my nerves after a couple of days. It also means that I get to cook more for Cameo. To be honest, I think I’m pretty good at cooking his dinners. We rarely have takeaways now we’ve moved to Nottingham and the quickest thing I cook is nuggets and pasta.

Organix Goodies Fruit & Seed Bites Are Buzzing

When I was weaning Cameo, the fear I had of him choking was real. I was so scared that he couldn’t chew & it was really hard for me to get my head around him not having teeth eating! As he got better at eating, the next concern I had was the food I was giving him. Especially when we were out and about. I wanted it to be child-friendly, relatively healthy and easy to carry. I can’t even tell you how much Organix Goodies saved the day on many an occasion. Now, Cameo is 20 months old, eats like…
