A new way of eating!

We have entered a new phase of eating where my little lady prefers to eat the sweeter stuff over dinner. I read an article that suggested that presenting your child with both main and dessert at the same time whilst strange had advantages. One being a healthy attitude to all food and another they will less likely rush dinner to eat.

So far the result has been very good but we are only on day 3 but on day 2 only 1/2 her chocolate pudding was eaten before she chose to start on fish fingers ….this in itself suggests this may work! Continue reading


imageToday after yet another early start and a morning of a whole lot of nothing I decided that an afternoon trip to the park was in order.

Today at the park the little one headed straight for the zip-line which at 2 she really is too small, I helped her up and explained that she needed to hold on tight as I walked the zip-line so she wouldn’t fall.

She hates he swings she will happily be seated in one and before the first push she wants out so it was to my surprise when another child sat on the swing she decided that she wanted to try it….she decided that swings are good as I buttoned her coat “swing” but I know that game! isn’t it funny the difference being around others can make!

I then on the way back decided to do my own bit of exploring as a new park open last  autumn and we hadn’t yet found it let alone stopped for a play. I found it all of 2 minutes from the park we were playing in funny huh Lol!
