Lunchbox Ideas: Sweet


That little somethin'-somethin' (that used to be two Arnott's biscuits for me, or a Yogo if I was with my dad) has grown up a bit in lunchboxes these days, I find. I'm still a nostalgic idiot, so my kids get a balance of all sorts of things (including sugar) but I do tend to keep packed lunches pretty tame - … [Read more...]

Lunchbox Ideas: Savoury


I know, it's that time of year again. Where we have to come up with ideas for packing kids' lunchboxes. With stuff they'll actually eat. I can't really complain, my girls have been at a place all last year that provided lunch and it was a huge relief not to have to worry about it. On the flip side, neither of my kids ate anything that was … [Read more...]

Kid Food: Snacks

Balance is everything, haha. I've been using hidden veggie sauce on pasta, in sandwiches, on pizza, basically … [Read more...]

Kid food: Lunch


A throwback picture from our old house - the deck was so warm outside! I daren't step foot outside just yet. Too damn cold. Anyway, we had egg sandwiches (Bigs had peanut butter because she was going through "the phase"), and fruit. My best egg sandwich of all time rules here. Greek yogurt with homemade strawberry preserves. Quorn nuggets, … [Read more...]

The fussy kid food battle continues…


This is a sponsored post for Cenovis One of the first things I realised when Biggie embarked upon a career of picky eating was: I wasn’t alone. Plenty of mums and dads were right there with me knowing their kid wouldn’t touch a spear of broccoli with a ten-foot-pole, or would scream the house down when presented with a piece of cheese. While I … [Read more...]
