Balancing lunch

Lunch 😀  Three cornered leek humous on bread chunks, Gouda cheese, 1/2 boiled egg, cherry tomatoes and cucumber.   I always try to give a couple of portions of veggies at lunchtime to up the balance of fruit and veg.  #lunch #toddler #doubleyummy #dietitian #registereddietitian #paediatricdietitian #balanced #balancedlife #balancednotclean #balancedeating #babyfood

Mud kitchen fun

Cooking up a storm in the mud kitchen. Or should I say cooking in the mud kitchen in the middle of a storm?!  After a beautiful walk in the blue bell woods with my friend a ‘little’ concerned about the creaking trees the winds got even stronger and trees started

Wild garlic soup

Big people’s: Little people’s: A very easy dish and lots of fun foraging for the wild garlic leaves (you could get some flowers too to garnish but we didn’t).  Ingredients: 600g potatoes, peeled & diced 1.2 litres low salt veg stock 120g wild garlic leaves, shredded (about 2 handfuls) To

Satay stirfry in action

I love the vibrant colours that you get with a stirfry. It’s a great way to get well on your way to eating a rainbow 🌈. Eating a good variety of fruit and veg is a great way to get a range of vitamins and minerals in as well as

Orange fish pie..?!

What’s for tea tonight..?  Orange fish pie! No actual oranges in here though. B is so into orange food that tonight is a treat for her 😂 a mix mash of sweet potatoes & potatoes and a layer of squash on top of a fish mix and burtolli beans in

Making meetings healthier

Great news as I’ve been accepted into the AHPs4PH scheme and hope to look at trialling some of my ideas around healthy meetings.  Don’t get me wrong I’m always grateful for a free lunch, but sometimes they can be a bit beige!  Today’s was anything but and most importantly really

‘Grow the right plants and flowers rather than worrying about putting bird seed out everyday’

This is my thought for the day as I’m pondering leadership styles and studying. I expect there’s a similar quote out there by a great thinker but this is my version as I look at the garden 😀🌸🌺🌻🌼🍀🌾🌳🌱  #motivator #developer #inspire #goodfoundations #leadership #getthebest #keepthemagicalive #thoughtoftheday #sunday #balancedlife #study #workingmum

What can I introduce shellfish (mussels on the BBQ for lunch)?

At what age can I give shellfish? This is something that I get asked regularly. The answer is that it’s fine to include properly cooked shellfish as part of the introducing solids (weaning) journey.  Do be aware that shellfish is on the list of common allergens and so if you

A hidden Cornish gem
