Nutrition

When it comes to mothering styles, I’m more like Bridget Jones than Gisele Bundchen. I don’t work on a balanced meal plan for the week, and I don’t make achingly beautiful organic moss and bark collages with my kiddo. Rather, I’m the mom who makes it to 5pm (with the morning’s oatmeal still in my hair) and realizes that the piece of fish I set aside for my 18-month-old son’s dinner has mysteriously disappeared from the fridge, so I have to cobble something nutritious together in half an hour while said kiddo takes apart the Tupperware cupboard for the fourth time since he woke from his nap.

Review by Ellie Salkeld, Events Organiser and Book Reviewer for TwinsPlus Arabia.

This book: Raising Happy, Healthy Children, by Sally-Ann Creed (a clinical nutritionist) and Andalene Salvesen (Super Granny) is much more than a guide to time-outs (although if you’re looking for Super Granny’s secret method to installing obedience into your kids in one three-hour visit, it IS here). I think reading this before you book your private home visit is almost a must: if you violently disagree then you will save some money. And if you agree with all of it then you can begin practicing some new habits before Andalene comes over and save some time!

Believe it or not, this Swiss roll is so nutritious, Andalene says you can even serve it for breakfast (the kids will of course think that is a GREAT idea)!

I never really ‘’got’’ all the ‘’new-year, new you’’ banter. Don’t get me wrong. Having goals (or resolutions, as we call them around new-year) are fine, even necessary. But there is a distinct difference between goals and habits.

I recently read a very enlightening article by a guy called Mark Manson, aptly titled: Your Goals are Overrated.
