Healthy eating inspiration for you and your child

Why eat a rainbow? How to eat a rainbow? 

In this blog I hope to create the desire to do both by offering inspiring health tips, tantalising recipes and creative techniques that excite the imagination, tickle the taste buds and instill the desire to create and eat colourful meals together with your children, as a family and into the wider world as a community.

If music be the food of love then maybe food is the music of healthy family life. Enjoy, with us, fantastic food, fun preparation and the pleasure of sharing it.
