Simple broccoli soup recipe (Vegan) – new recipe

When I started weaning Ioan onto solid food, he ate everything I put in front of him. Then, as he reached toddler stage, he began expressing preferences for the bland or sweet (or sausages). A few months ago, after starting pre-school, he suddenly started informing us that his favourite foods were “broccoli, carrots and peas” […]

Thoughts on being a (greedy) mum – months 9-12

If anything should give you an indication of how motherhood sucks up your time, the fact that Ioan is now 14 months old and I am only writing about his 9th month is a sign. I decided it’s probably better to group months 9-12 as even though tons has happened every single month, I don’t […]

Thoughts on being a (greedy) mum – month 8

He mentioned this point of view to his colleagues at work who (fortunately for […]

Week 20 – more new teeth and even less sleep

Ioan’s chicken and vegetable soup (new Froothie UK recipe)

There are very few things that Ioan won’t eat (so far) but he is only little, so his portions are quite demoralisingly small when I lovingly preparing batches of healthy and nutritious food. Recently we had friends over for lunch, and so I roasted a couple of chickens to have with new potatoes and homemade coleslaw. […]

Week 6 2017 – my (baby’s) body is a temple

With a freezer full of pureed meals for Ioan, in the last week I started trying him on blitzed versions of mine and Andrew’s food as well. Unfortunately this was met with limited success as Ioan had a nasty cold and sore throat (which he is just recovering from) so wouldn’t eat his solids and […]
