Celebrating Organix 25th Birthday & Win A Hamper Of Organix Snacks - Competition



Leading baby and toddler snack food brand Organix are celebrating their 25th anniversary in 2017. For 25 years, Organix has been setting standards for the food industry, providing parents with nutritious ‘no junk’ organic food for their little ones and campaigning for better quality food for children.

Organix makes their food in a sustainable way and to celebrate this milestone in their history, they are launching Making Things Better - their first sustainability report - which tracks their progress across 19 key areas. A letter from Organix to the children of future generations pledges their commitment to always keep improving and challenging the status quo (see notes to editors for full text).

Now the number one baby and toddler snack food brand in the UK, Organix originated from more humble beginnings, the kitchen of founder Lizzie Vann, who decided to turn her vision to improve children’s health into reality and set about developing the UK’s first organic baby food.
Long before it was popular to put purpose before profit, Organix was set up with a social mission at its heart – ‘Pure Food, Healthy Babies, Safer World.’ Since then Organix has worked tirelessly to pioneer healthy children’s food, lobbying Government and the food industry through impactful, attention grabbing campaigns, including:

* Food for Life (2003): led to changes in school meals and was championed by Jamie Oliver.
* Action on Additives (2007): sought the removal of six artificial colours from food targeted at children - food giants like Nestle, Coca-Cola and Cadburys changed their recipes as a result.
* Georgie, Porgie, Pudding and Pie (2008): Highlighted the poor quality and lack of regulation around nursery food.
* Out to Lunch (2013): transformed children’s food served in restaurants, at leisure attractions and on the high street.
* Engineering Taste (2016): shines a light on food engineering and how food companies are making misleading claims and leaving parents confused.


Organix will be marking their quarter century with a show stopping birthday cake which tells the story of their 25-year history through the medium of icing! The cake, comprises seven tiers of delicious sponges reflecting the flavours of two of their top selling foods – Carrot Sticks and Goodies Raspberry & Apple Oaty Bars – and is topped with another of their best sellers, a Goodies Gingerbread Man.


Fun Facts
* 12 million people have bought Organix snacks – that’s enough to fill Twickenham 150 times over!
* Organix have sold over 3,000 tons of Goodies raisins – that’s more than 21 blue whales!
* Organix have sold 1.6 billion rice cakes – that’s enough to share with one fifth of the world’s population!
* Organix have sold over 235 million Goodies soft oaty bars – laid end to end they would reach to Timbuktu and back 3 times!

I've teamed up with Organix to give away a hamper of Organix snacks to one lucky winner. Included in the prize will be the Organix Carrot Stix, Organix Goodies Raisins, Organix Goodies Gingerbread Men, Organix Goodies Soft Oaty Bars and the new Organix Punk'd Bars.

Pampers Active Fit Nappy Pants

Back when Noah was around 6 months old I noticed a change in his movements and how active he was and how nappy changing became quite a challenge at times. He didn't want to lie down at all and quite frankly didn't have time to have his nappy changed, he thought he was too busy for that! One of the tricks that he liked to do was wait until I had taken his nappy off and then he would try and crawl off at the speed of light!

When you think of nappy pants the first thing that springs to mind is potty training and the toddlers who are ready to make the transition. But actually what I have discovered is, they can be used so much earlier than that – and are great to use on your wriggly baby!

I missed the trick with Noah, knowing more about Active Fit Nappy Pants would have saved a lot of unnecessary wriggle time… no fiddly tabs to have to wrestle with, simply pull up and go, hey presto. They would have made nappy change so much easier that's for sure!


Pampers nappy pants are made the same way as regular Pampers, but with all round stretchy and easy to put on waist. I wish I'd have known back then because as you can see with the photo above I had one super wriggly baby! Nappy pants would have certainly made my life a lot easier but lesson learned, I'll be buying them for Ava this time around!

Have you tried Pampers Active Fit Nappy Pants?

As you can see by the photo's we've been on holiday this week, seven days in Puerto Banus, Spain! The weather was absolutely perfect and we had such a wonderful holiday with extended family. It was Noah's second time abroad and Ava's first holiday and it was such a great experience, although holidays don't really feel like holidays anymore with two young children in tow! We wouldn't have it any other way though, that's for sure! We stayed in a family members villa and it was by far the most luxurious place we've ever stayed at, it was 7 days of pure bliss. Noah and his cousins loved splashing about in the pool and play fighting with Nick and I enjoyed copious amounts of Sangria! We had trips to Puerto Banus harbour, to the beach, a couple of meals out, shopping trips here and there but most our days were spent relaxing by the pool. We are already thinking of booking our holiday for next year, back to Majorca I think!


What have you been up to this week?

Siblings - May 2017



I can't believe this is the third Siblings post that I've taken part in now, time is flying by with these two rugrats. Find our first post here and our second here, they have both changed so much in such a short amount of time. 

Noah started off quiet and very gentle around her but now he's so used to having his baby sister around that he's no longer quiet and often dives right on her! He's still gentle but his movements can come across quite boisterous but that's just how he is. He can come bounding over and then jump right next to her but when he leans in to give her a cuddle it's ever so gentle. One thing I know for a fact is how much he loves Ava, all he's ever done is show love and patience with her. It's so endearing to see. 

Ava on the other hand, well we know how much babies grow. She's no longer a newborn is now 10 weeks old. She absolutely adores to her family and to people watch, especially Noah. She loves to watch him play, she will babble along with him and she also seems to give some of her biggest smiles to him too. I'm so excited to watch their friendship blossom as they get older, squabbles and all.
