Oatly Drink Review

beeniebudsandco reviewIt’s like milk, but made for humans. As a family we eat pretty well, we’re always looking for new health foods to try out. We were delighted to try out the swedish based company The Original Oatly! Drink. A drink made with oats you say, Yes! It was The Original Oatly! idea in the early 1990s to find an alternative to milk that was more in tune with the needs of the human body and the planet, and it is they idea to continue to make the best, most amazing liquid oats that you will find anywhere.  We enjoyed our The Original Oatly! Drink with our favourite cereal, no need to add sugar. Tastes great chilled over ice. Available at most stores Tesco, Asda, Holland And Barrett.   BEENIEBUDSANDCO.COM

ella’s kitchen NEW cookbook

beeniebuds_review_ella

We was very happy to find out that Ella’s Kitchen have created a cookbook for babies to 5 year olds. 100 tasty, healthy recipes for kids that range from the easiest of snacks and light meals that can be rustled up in minutes to delicious and satisfying dinners. Interesting twists and clever shortcuts, such as Quickly Does it Quiche and Wonderful Watermelon Ice, make life as easy as possible for busy parents.

A key aspect of the book is emphasis is on involving kids as much as possible and helping to build a positive relationship with food. Ella s Kitchen fully encourages kids to get hands-on and as messy as possible in order to discover food with all their senses. Myself and little beeniebud had a great time making very berry smoothies, for breakfast. (Great anytime of the day)

We love fruit and it was fun getting all the ingredients prepared. It’s a great start on getting little beeniebud to understand about cooking. The cookbook includes fun things to do like colouring-in activities and a range of stickers that kids can use to mark recipes they love or have made themselves. Kids will love it as much as their parents do!

We love painting, colouring and drawing. Little beeniebud is only 2 years but loves her work to be showcased for other friends and familes members to see ( she gets it from her mama!). So I do have a special wall for her art. I was introduce to a lovely brand called something we made. Create, Share and Frame. Besty (the lovely founder), has come up with a great way of kids to be super creative and share their best work in a bespoke frame. The frames are a lovely classic white, blank paper, shape mount and a cut out shape. All we need to do was supply the paints, or colouring pencils.

We went with straw blowing painting and finger painting, there was lots of laughter and smiles. Once our artwork was dried, little beeniebud was very happy with her final display and in her framed intial ‘S’. If you would like your own something we made frames, is available here.

Thanks something we made x

 

ella’s kitchen new cereal delights…

ellas kitchen cereal products..

A great start to the day is breakfast, right? Well our friends at Ellas’s Kitchen have a new cereal range. Our little beeniebud is 2 years and the other cereal brands still have a high percent of sugar. That’s why we love the Ella’s Kitchen Wakey Wakey Round Ones 100% scrummy melt in the mouth cereal, with 2 different Round Ones. Packed with organic multigrains and a hint of vanilla and not even the tiniest smidge of refined sugars. Delicious with milk or add yoghurt and fruit for a tasty morning treat. We think this is great for breakfast and snacking. We have a winner. Yay!

Say Hello...little puggle

We had a whole month of lovely rain and rainy days can be boring or fun. In this case myself and little beeniebud had real fun and getting creative with one of Little Puggle themed boxes. Little Puggle is a brand new subscription monthly service, which delivers direct to your door an exciting box full of high quality arts and craft kits and fun activities for children aged between 3 and 7 years. All Little Puggle boxes are tailored to your little one’s interests (animals, trains, pirates) Little beeniebud is super into her arts and crafts (taken from her mama) and she was so delighted to recieve this lovely themed box of goodies. I loved the creative connection we had when we was colouring the figures and then we created a themed set which grandma helped with too! We played all day long.
