I was listening to a book on Audible the other day about gut health. The discussion was about the different types of diets in the world and they concluded that the two healthiest diets are the Mediterranean diet and the Japanese diet. These are the two diets that are considered to be the best for overall gut health, which has an impact on your overall health and well-being of course.
I love children’s plate and cutlery sets. There are so many cute little sets out there, I’ll be a little sad when our kitchen cupboards aren’t full of them anymore.

The first thing the children say to me when they come out of school is “can I have a snack?” it’s a standard question for which I have to go in prepared for every day. No parent likes to be on the receiving end of a ‘hangry’ child – am I right?

Since weaning my children I’ve always tried my very best to get a range of foods into them, including red meat. It hasn’t always been easy but my approach has been consistent and I’ve persevered.
Being pregnant requires you to be a bit more cautious about your actions and what you put in your mouth. You are eating for two people now, that doesn’t mean twice the volume, but it does mean you need to think about what will benefit both you and the baby – and of course what may not.
