Raising healthy, happy kids is at the heart of mum's everywhere.
And it's not always easy.
When I had my first daughter I was overwhelmed with a passion to give her the best possible start in life I could and I realised the best way of doing this was by living one myself, it was hard work sometimes but worth every effort.
I involve my girls now in growing food, sourcing food, cooking food and eating meals as family. We go for big walks, visit natioanl parks, do yoga, swim and exercise together.
Both my girls have grown up going for huge pram walks, spending lots of time in the fresh air outside, getting dirty like kids love to do, playing in muddy puddles (thanks peppa) earthy fun in nature, picking organic veggies and eating them straight out of the garden and both love their fruits and vegetables and family meals.
Here are some things, recipes, tips, activities I have learnt along the way, found of enormous benefit or just LOVE for raising healthy, happy kids XX
