Iron is a hardworking little mineral, and it’s so important to include iron-rich food in your diet. Iron’s real superpower is the ability to help red blood cells form oxygen, and it also plays an important role in maintaining good muscle function. If you don’t get enough iron, you can soon start to feel tired and rundown.
Take the kids on a tasty adventure with these fun, foodie ideas for day trips and things to do. Check out local social media groups for a better idea of what’s on near you, and take a look at your local council website for information on food markets or one-off events across the summer.
It’s the school holidays! So why not have a bit of fun over lunch and get the kids involved in making their own meal? Think about colourful combos of fresh veg, and hands-on dishes that the kids can assemble themselves at the table. Cooking together is a great way to keep everyone busy on a lazy (or rainy!) day, and get a little goodness into the kids’ diet as well.
If you’re hosting a children’s party or sleepover during the holidays, why not get the kids to do the catering? It’s a fun way to keep them busy and get them excited about some fresh new flavours. Plus, fussy eaters are way more likely to get stuck into a dish they’ve enjoyed making themselves.
