Is some A2 protein the same as all A2 protein in dairy milk? Are you confused?

Drink more milk, eat more yoghurt and enjoy more cheese! We all know dairy milk is one of the richest food sources of calcium and also provides many other important nutrients…but it seems we become totally confused when it comes to the proteins in milk.  There’s been a lot of noise lately especially about the A2 protein.  Here, we unravel the story of A2 protein and why so many people are talking about a2 Milk. Firstly, all regular dairy milk brands today contain a combination of two main types of beta-casein protein, A1 and A2.  a2 Milk is special because …

What to feed teething babies and toddlers…

Arrggghhh!  Teething! Teething for babies and toddlers can be so painful, and it seems to go on, and on, and on. Teething was our favourite go-to diagnosis for any poor behavior or change in temperament. The crankiness, dribbling and disturbed sleep can really put a spanner in things and seems to always happen just after you’ve broken a new regime in and calm had just been restored. There is not much for it though, lots of love and cuddles, soothing gels and plenty of dribble-bibs on the ready.  Some swear by the Amber necklaces and others just love the silicone …

Power Biccies

With my twins just starting Prep I’ve been thinking a lot about lunch boxes. And what to put in them…. every day for, 5 days a week….. it’s a daunting thought. I’m determined not to undo my 5 years of hard work and resort to copious amounts of pre-packaged sugar laden snack foods to fill the lunch box.  I also don’t want to expose my now 2 year old to that type of food on a regular basis.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a junk food nazi, my kids have treats most day, but they are usually home-baked and …

Christmas Couscous

This is a recipe I created last year but every time I make it I feel a bit Christmassy.  Don’t you think it looks a bit like Christmas? I just love the colours and so do the kids.  It’s super simple to cook and is delicious both hot or cold which I find makes it a great option for taking to parks and Christmtas parties, where invariably the bubs of this world are not catered for.  A small tub of this in your bag and its chowtime anywhere. Ingredients 1 TBS olive oil 1 asian shallot, finely diced 1 clove …

Tuna steaks with Mango and Avocado Salsa

Melbourne’s weather is completely crazy at the moment.  34 degrees one day and 14 the next!  I was just getting excited about the warmer weather and here I am back in my puffer jacket wishing I had the heater on. But, in the tiny 1 day taste of summer we did have I managed to summon some summer flavours, fire up the BBQ and create a winner that was loved but all – from 2 to 42 (not quite but it rhymes!). When I first thought about it as a dinner option I initially dismissed it as not something that …

Involving kids in the kitchen

The preparation of dinner can sometimes be a battle of the wills, especially if your child is tired at the end of a long day. They may just want to be under your feet, playing a game, cuddling you on the couch or are nagging you for things. None of which is conducive to a pleasant or easy dinner prep. Here are a few things I do to help change their attitude towards my ‘busy-ness’ in the kitchen. Not to mention the added advantage of their buy-in to eat dinner. Get your Gear On All my kids have their own …

Wholefood Simply Baked Banana Custard

I have a very fussy almost two year old. He is constantly changing his mind on what he will eat and drink, and some days he really cannot work out what he wants; one bite of an apple, nope, that’s not it, he peels a banana, no, that wont do, licks a cracker, spits out his cherry tomato, throws his cucumber, and then goes back to the fridge. When we get to this point, I whip up our baked banana custard, he will happily eat one or even two full serves of this, every single time. My daughter also loves it, but as …

Allergy Testing – Eggs

Current research suggests that we should be exposing our babies to eggs and nuts much earlier than was previously advised. The Murdoch Children’s Research Institute has carried out the world’s biggest paediatric study of food allergy, HealthNuts, involving 5300 babies and toddlers. Based on its findings, it is now advising parents to “introduce a wide range of foods early on”.  “We believe that late introduction of egg does not reduce the risk of developing an egg allergy”. It also suggests that introduction of cooked egg between 4 to 6 months is safe and may even be protective against egg allergy …

Friday Night Fish N’ Chips

  I love Fish n Chips. I have fond memories of the very 70’s blue tiled shop that was our local and the lovely Greek couple that ran it. Friday night Fish N’ Chips were a regular event we all looked forward to. But now I struggle with them a bit. Whilst I love the idea of them I find myself regretting them after the fact. Too much batter, not enough lemon and of course the simple fact that I over-do it.  I just can’t help myself around hot chips. It’s no surprise that my kids love them too. But …
