Healthy Kids Snacks – Blueberry Yoghurt Bites

Healthy Kids Snacks – Blueberry Yoghurt Bites

blueberry_yoghurt_bites

Blueberry Yoghurt Bites.

With a  five year old and a seventeen year old we have to keep the fridge and cupboards full of ready to eat snacks. They both get bored of the same stuff day in day out so after a quick look around Pinterest I found a recipe for Blueberry Yoghurt Bites.

What you need:

Blueberries – you can use as few or as many as you want to make
Natural Greek Yoghurt (I’ve used Honey & Apricot and Strawberry)

You need to:

Wash the blueberries. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper (making sure that it will fit flat in your freezer). Using a cocktail stick to pick up a blueberry, dip in the yoghurt to that the blueberry is completely covered in yoghurt and then put on the baking tray.

Blueberry Yoghurt Bites

Once you’ve dipped all the blueberries, but the tray into the freezer and leave to freeze for a couple of hours.

You should try them this Bank Holiday weekend. My two have decided that they both LOVE them. Next time we’re going to try blueberries as well as raspberries and strawberries.

Have fun.

It’s our 9th Birthday Today

It’s our 9th Birthday Today.

9th_birthday

It’s our 9th Birthday today!!

On one hand I’m super excited that I’ve racked up this many years and on the other hand I’m disappointed that my ‘lil biz’ has not quite reached the heights that I expected all those years ago when I had the big dream of taking on the world lol.

Laughing aside it’s been quite a journey of making the biggest mistakes (it’s true that you learn from your mistakes) to doing things that would never have been possible otherwise. I’ve (virtually) met some fantastic people and fellow business owners that have been along for the ride with me and love the ‘Biz Fam’ that I’ve gained over this time.

So to celebrate this milestone and to say Thank You for keeping us going I’m offering 15% Off Everything on Site until Tuesday 10th May. Just add Birthday9 in the Discount box at the checkout.

As an Independent Retailer we do rely on YOU guys to keep us going and so if you like what you see, share with your friends and family, leave us a review on the products that you’ve bought and engage with us on our Facebook Page.

We love to hear from you and hope that you enjoy your shopping experience with us.

One of my favourite jobs is buying new stock, but as we all know babies grow at an extortionate rate so we’ve popped a little vote type box so you can let us know what age your littles are at so that we can buy age appropriate stock next time round.

I’m going to stop talking now, but just to say Thank You again.

Win a Set of At the Seaside Flashcards

Win a Set of At the Seaside Flashcards from Clever Little Baby.

a Rafflecopter giveaway

With the lovely weather apparently descending on us this weekend it’s a great time to get out and about with the family. Many places that we visit involve a car journey and as a mum of two, in-car entertainment has to be provided more for our sanity than anything else! We do the usual eye-spy, clue game and how many red cars you can spot, but at 5, Isabelle needs far more stimulation these days as it’s B-O-R-I-N-G!! Clever Little Baby Flashcards are not only educational, but they are sturdy and a great shape for little hands with fascinating characters and illustrations. When Isabelle was younger we would use the cards and she would have to tell us what the pictures were and as she got a older would look at the words on the back of each card. Our favourite game was making up stories by shuffling the cards and starting a story and incorporating each turned over card into the story. Perfect for distracting during a car journey, and if you’re heading to the beach then the ‘At The Seaside’ set would be perfect. For your chance to Win a set of At the Seaside enter your details in to the Rafflecopter form above or you can buy your own set over on the website. Click Here. www.babynotincluded.co.uk
