Healthy Breakfast Ideas using Ready Brek

Now winter seems to have made an appearance, I'm trying to finding warm, healthy breakfasts to start the day.

Porridge and warm Weetabix are my easy go-to choices, but Chunk can get bored so I've been looking at ways to spice breakfast up a bit without using sugary cereals.

I've been sent some Ready Brek to try out and I was surprised to see there's a lot that can be done with it. Ready Brek is thankfully a very easy and quick breakfast to make in the mornings while I'm rushing around getting Chunk and I ready for school and work. It's also nutritious and designed to give you long lasting energy which is perfect for my son to get through a morning of hard concentration at school.

One of my favourite things to do with it is to mix it with homemade granola dust, which only contains natural sugars from dried fruits. It contains a little bit of pure cocoa powder as well as a range of nuts which help to boost brain function and energy. I use the Jamie Oliver granola dust recipe from one of his books and it's so easy; You just bake it for a few minutes and then blend it and it lasts for weeks!

Toy Review: Stretch Mini Justice League

Now we're in November I'm increasing my search for Christmas toys for Chunk and his cousins, so expect a few reviews of the best ones I find!

My son loves anything superhero, so I'm confident the new Justice League Stretch Armstrong range from Character will provide me with some good stocking fillers.

The range includes 7 inch figures of Batman, Superman and Flash. I chose Flash as he is the only one that we haven't got any toys of in Chunk's huge superhero collection.

Toy Review: BRIO Wooden Doll Pram

Well that 'C' word is fast approaching us now we are more than halfway through October, so I've been looking into what toys will be good to get for my son, niece and nephew.

My niece is 18 months old and I came across this really cool Wooden Pram by BRIO. Most prams I've seen tend to be plastic and very girly, whereas this is unisex and is built to last through the rams and bumps my niece would do on a daily basis.

Competition: Win A Vremi Espresso Maker and Wine Preserver

Who else likes proper coffee and wine?! Most of the parent population I imagine!

Vremi Espresso Maker and Wine Preserver

I was sent the Vremi Espresso Maker and Wine Preserver and loved them so much I'm now giving away a set for one of you lucky readers.

The Vremi Espresso Maker is great as it's a small kit which enables you to make classic italian espressos in less than five minutes. It makes six espresso shots, and features an easy grip handle. You can use it on a gas or electric hob, which means you can even take it camping!

We Are Celebrating #ThunderbirdsDay Today!

Pretend to Bee has launched a FAB (haha get it?!) new Thunderbirds costume range for kids to celebrate Thunderbirds Day which happens to be today!

The Thunderbird Dressing Up Range from Pretend to Bee

My son has got the Alan Tracy Thunderbirds costume, but you can also get Scott and Virgil too!

The costume is clearly of high quality as it's been made well and thankfully has a detachable sash and sound piece, to avoid me breaking these in the washing machine! Costumes have to be cleaned often in my home because Chunk manages to get the most bizarre stains on everything.

It's a 100% polyester all-in-one suit which has easy velcro fastenings. It has padded armour shoulder pads and the sound chip says the classic Thunderbird countdown whenever it's pressed. I've even showed this off on Instagram as you can see below...
