“Mummy I’m Huuuungry”: Surviving the summer snacks with 2 under 5

Summer holidays have hit us. We’ve got 8 weeks of fun as Miss K has now “graduated” from pre-school, yes you now graduate – seriously what is that about?! So in September she starts “big-school” and I will be an emotional wreck for a moment, she is so ready to go that I really can’t […]

Savoury Muffins: now you can have your cake and eat it for lunch.

Sssh until last weekend I was a savoury muffin virgin! Why had no-one introduced me to these lovelies before? I made them on a whim.

Carrot and Cheese Savoury Flapjacks

My ongoing obsession with flapjack has turned a corner this week. I’ve discovered a new love. Savoury flapjack. As the J boy has also inherited my flapjack loving genes, I thought it may be a good way to get his veggie love on too. It turns out it worked a treat. So if you want […]

Tuna and vegetable fish cakes

I’ve had a poorly boy this week. He has had a very bad case of chicken pox and although the spots are all dried up and healing now he has gone back into a very itchy stage. It is affecting his sleep and his appetite. So my mummy cooking skills have been put to the […]

Dietitians’ Week: A snapshot of my life as a dietitian.

This week 8th-12th June is officially DIETITIANS WEEK. Unfortunately that doesn’t mean a week off for us hard-working dietitian’s. Maybe I should suggest that! Instead many departments and dietitians around the UK are taking the opportunity to work even harder and put on special events to celebrate and highlight dietitians. There are also twitter chats […]

I’m still slightly in shock.  However I have a trophy and certificate to prove it. This week I travelled up to Birmingham for the British Dietetic Associations Annual Awards Dinner.
