With one baby in ten born in Australia expected to develop a food allergy, Professor Katie Allen from the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute says, “Learn about it. Manage it. Know what to do when a reaction happens.” Read full article

This week is the 2nd annual Meat Free Week and my lovely husband – a staunch carnivore – has volunteered to take the challenge and forgo flesh for a full seven days. While I’m doubtful that he’ll decide to become a full-time vegetarian after a week without meat, I do hope he will come to realize that you can eat well and still enjoy delicious, satisfying food when consuming a plant-based diet.

Researchers at Deakin University recently published research linking poor diet in pregnant women and in their young children, with children’s higher levels of behavioural and emotional problems. The investigators studied the diets of over 23,000 pregnant women and their children, and concluded after a five year follow-up, that early exposure to what is commonly known as ‘junk food’, increases the risk of poor mental health.

Are We Having Fun Yet? Outings with Children.

Ever planned a fun day out with the children and then had your plans go out the window? I can think of two recent examples not quite meeting the idyllic family outing I had in mind. In hindsight, I am laughing and I’m still glad we forged ahead despite whingeing and helpful critiquing from the teenagers in the back of the car.

Today I saw something wonderful. And unexpected. My kids know about real food. Fresh food. They don't think cakes come from packet mix because Mum says if you're going to have chocolate cake, have a real one. They know how to make dumplings.
