Kinder Kitchen Top Tips on Shopping Smart

Kinder Kitchen Top Tips on Shopping Smart Supermarkets are crafty. ‘2 for 1’ or ‘3 for 2’ deals make us think we are getting a good deal but more often than not we buy more than we actually need, often throwing items that are out of date away or eating double of something just because it’s in the cupboard and we think it was a bargain. Below are some tips on how to save money on your weekly shop. A

Kinder Kitchen Top Tip – mealtime scheduling

Before having children, my life outside work was ‘unscheduled.’ I liked a certain routine during the week but weekends were very laissez-faire. I’d get up when I wanted, eat when I was hungry and stay up until the early hours. After the birth of my first child, I realised that I had to become very disciplined and my weekdays as well as my weekends began to follow my child’s schedule. My eldest definitely thrives on routine although some children don’t need

Kinder Kitchen recipe – Pink salad delight

So as I mentioned yesterday, I have a kitchen full of amazing produce and for lunch today I made my delicious pink delight salad. I just love beetroot. I know many people don’t like it but for me there is nothing better than freshly boiled beetroot in a salad. My children have not taken to beetroot yet but by eating this dish in front of my son, he took an interest (in the colour particularly) and asked me what I was eating. I served

Kinder Kitchen Kid’s Healthy Recipe – Kid Friendly Guacamole

It’s sunshine and rain showers here in North London. It was also very cold here this morning and a new season is definitely upon us. After months of sunshine I thought I was going to miss the warm days and hazy evenings but actually I am ready to embrace autumn. Autumn is harvest time and along with produce spilling over from the summer months, there is an abundance of wonderfully fresh autumnal foods available to buy. I brought peaches, plums, radishes,

Portion control and letting children decide when enough is enough

I have read quite a few articles lately on how we should let our children tell us when they have had enough to eat. We should let them leave food on their plate and say well done for eating as much as they have. I have been guilty of spoon feeding my 5 year old the last bits of leftovers on her plate and these articles got me thinking. I have always believed that babies were able to tell us

Kinder Kitchen Cooking Tip – Pink Pasta

Although most children like pasta, there are some that don’t or get bored by it. White pasta is also not as healthy as brown pasta due to processing. I am slowly getting my children used to whole wheat pasta as they still prefer white pasta. Babies and young children do not need as much fibre so white pasta is fine when they are really young. A way of adding a healthy twist to pasta and giving it a great new colour is

Fish – Mega brain food

Homemade sesame coated fish fingers with sweet potato chips Having just spent a week in Cornwall and eating the most wonderfully fresh fish, I have carried on at home and fish is making a very regular appearance on our dinning table. My children love fish. Yes, I am lucky but here luck has had little to do with it. I made sure that my children ate fish from a very young age. As babies they ate fish mashed up with sweet

Foodies delight – the jewels of England’s countryside

I am back in London after a week in Cornwall and a long weekend in Suffolk. I am rested and well fed. I have eaten so well over the last couple of weeks and so have my children. With all the sun and good food their trousers have become too short on both of them. Living in London makes me sometimes forget how simple food can be as we have such an array of different ingredients and influences that I love to use. Being
